MAN LION'S CITY E WINS ANOTHER DESIGN AWARD
After winning the 2020 iF Design Award the MAN Lion's City E won this year also the 2020 design prize in the Automotive Brand Contest in the Commercial Vehicle category.
"The entire exterior is segmented. The colour, trim and lighting concept imbues the disabled-accessible interior with a bright and spacious feel. The ergonomically styled driver's cockpit incorporates impressively high levels of functionality", the jury’s verdict states. Rudi Kuchta, Head Business Unit Bus at MAN Truck & Bus: "The award shows how well the design of our electric bus has been received. Behind it all is a highly motivated team that has done a great job over the past few years. It's something to be really proud of."
"Our designers took the consistently well thought-out concept of the new city bus generation and immediately recognisable as a member of the new MAN Lion's City family", comments Stephan Schönherr, Vice President Styling Bus. He adds: "This latest award in the Automotive Brand Contest underline our basic idea that buses designed for the urban transport needs of today and tomorrow must also look attractive."
In its Automotive Brand Contest, the German Design Council (Rat für Formgebung) awards prizes every year in recognition of exceptional product and communications design. The jury comprising journalists, design and communications experts and academics presents the awards in a total of 13 categories and four special categories.
