MAN electric bus transports visitors at IAA show in Munich

Held in Munich for the first time, the international trade show IAA which takes place this month will see the MAN ebus in operation taking visitors between the city centre and the trade fair on a dedicated ‘Blue Lane’.

“Visitors to the trade fair will experience future-oriented and sustainable mobility with our MAN Lion’s City E,” says Andreas Tostmann, CEO of MAN Truck & Bus. “The MAN Lion’s City E is locally emission-free on the road and represents the future of inner-city mobility,” says Tostmann.

Rudi Kuchta, head of business unit bus at MAN Truck & Bus, adds: “The potential for reducing CO2 emissions in local public transport is enormous.

“The European Union has also recognised this and passed the Clean Vehicle Directive. This provides for binding emission standards in municipal fleets from the beginning of August 2021. Cities must thus set their course for emission-free mobility. The goal is to move from ‘low emission’ to ‘no emission’. We are convinced that electromobility is the key technology for urban mobility of today and tomorrow.”
