Copenhagen’s Vikingbus orders 45 MAN Lion’s Metropolis 12 E electrical buses
Danish transport operator Vikingbus has ordered 45 MAN Lion’s Metropolis 12 E buses for the Denmark capital’s public transport service.
The newly ordered buses are anticipated to be deployed in Spring 2023.
One other coach firm, Anchersen, already operates 25 MAN Lion’s Metropolis 12 E buses on Copenhagen’s central bus route 7A, which carries greater than 4.3 million passengers yearly. In the meantime, Vikingbus itself has been utilizing 12 MAN Lion’s Metropolis E buses on routes within the Danish cities of Odder and Skanderborg.
“The difficulty of sustainability is important for Vikingbus, which is why it was rapidly determined that notably environmentally pleasant metropolis buses needs to be used on the newly acquired bus routes,” says Rudi Kuchta, Head of Enterprise Unit Bus at MAN Truck & Bus. “We’re naturally delighted that our MAN Lion’s Metropolis E was chosen and that the difficulty of environmental safety is changing into more and more essential in public transport.”
