In the first MAN e-bus deployment in Denmark, 25 MAN Lion’s City 12 E all electric models have been ordered for delivery to Anchersen A/S later in 2021. They will provide an extra-environmentally friendly means of transport for visitors and residents alike as they travel around the Danish capital.
The new Copenhagen city buses offer space for up to 76 passengers. Extended seat pitch and comfortable padded seats ensure that passengers have a pleasant experience en route. “Providing sufficient space is currently becoming much more important in the age of the coronavirus pandemic. Riders on our buses have the opportunity to keep a better distance from their fellow passengers,” says Rudi Kuchta.
MAN uses a central motor on the rear axle to drive its electric bus. This has several advantages: Driving stability and safety increase, as does the maximum energy recovery during braking.
The batteries are depot-charged via a combined charging system (CCS) connector. An average charging power of 100 kW, the MAN Lion’s City 12 E is fully charged in less than three hours – and at the maximum charging power of 150 kW, the charging time is shorter still.
