The Moscow public transport company Mostransavto will in future be relying on the MAN Lion’s Regio C. Mostransavto ordered a total of 46 MAN Lion’s Regio C vehicles, which were delivered in mid-May. The 13.01-metre bus with its up to 59 seats provides a high level of comfort and maximum safety at an attractive price. The customer also likes the model's attractive design. The buses are powered by a six-cylinder diesel engine delivering 228 kW (310 hp) and their exhaust gas is cleaned with the aid of the MAN PM catalytic converter.
“MAN Avtomobili Rossiya» offers maximum efficient and reliable vehicles that satisfy the highest passenger safety and comfort standards. The fleet replacement is to become the most important component for successful passenger transportation operations on a high level”, - Andrey Grishin carriage deputy general director MOSTRANSAVTO said.
Mostransavto's local public transport operation serves an area and population comparable with that of Bavaria, running approximately 6,000 buses with lengths of 12 metres and up.
As an importer, MAN Truck & Bus has been the market leader in Russia for the past three years in the segment for buses over 12 metres. Last year, MAN supplied Russia with a total of 152 coaches and intercity buses. This year, sales are expected to double.
