MAN SELLS FIRST BUS IN KOREA
The MAN Lion’s Touring sold is a cabriolet single decker being offered for sightseeing tours. Though it is the first bus that MAN has launched on to the market in Korea, the Munich company has already been active in this market for 15 years as a provider of premium trucks.
With its sunroof and removable side windows, the MAN Lion’s Touring is ideally suited to the four seasons in Korea. In good weather, tourists have a significantly better view of the sights and cities. At 11.3 m long and 2.5 m wide, its manoeuvrability is a match even for narrow streets. Its power is provided by a 290 hp engine teamed with a six-speed automatic gearbox. There is space for up to 45 passengers on board the sightseeing cabriolet bus.
MAN Truck & Bus sees great potential in the bus market in Korea for high-quality European buses. The launch of MAN Lion’s Touring marks the start of this. The company’s further plans include unveiling a low-floor bus powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) at the Seoul Motor Show next year. A double-decker bus will also follow soon.
