MAN Lion's City E wins design prize in 2020 Automotive Brand Contest. Following on from the 2020 iF Design Award, the MAN Lion's City E has now achieved its next triumph: The jury of the Automotive Brand Contest awarded the all-electric city bus the internationally coveted design prize in the Commercial Vehicle category. The MAN Lion's City E won the coveted award in the Commercial Vehicle category. “The Automotive Brand Contest is the only neutral international design competition for automotive brands, so the competition is tough. That makes it all the more pleasing to us that the MAN Lion's City E won,” says Rudi Kuchta, Head Business Unit Bus at MAN Truck & Bus. He goes on: “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.”

One of the winning features of the MAN Lion's City E was its timelessly modern and expressive look. “Our designers took the consistently well thought-out concept of the new city bus generation and developed it into a ground-breaking e-mobility design. What has emerged is an electric bus that has a design all of its own, yet is immediately recognisable as a member of the new MAN Lion's City family,” comments Stephan Schönherr, Vice President Styling Bus, and the man responsible for bus design for the MAN and NEOPLAN brands. He adds: “This latest award in the Automotive Brand Contest, and many other prizes including the 2020 iF Design Award, impressively affirm the great work done by our team. They also underline our basic idea that buses designed for the urban transport needs of today and tomorrow must also look attractive.”
