And the winner is … the MAN Lion’s City E! The fully electric city bus has been chosen as the winner of the iF Gold Award in the “Automobile/Vehicle/Bike” category by the design judging panel of the iF International Forum. The bus design team has now won an iF Design Award for the fifth year running.
78 international design experts from more than 20 countries chose this year’s iF Design Award winners from a total of 7,298 entries from 56 countries. The judging panel also acknowledged outstanding achievements in design with a particularly special award: the iF Gold Award. In the “Automobiles/Vehicle/Bikes” category, the outstanding design of the MAN Lion’s City E won over the experts to win the coveted award. “Compared to last year, the number of entries increased by around 1,000. With that in mind, we can take even greater pleasure from the fact that the MAN Lion’s City E came out on top – and won an iF Gold Award to boot,” says Rudi Kuchta, Head of Business Unit Bus at MAN Truck & Bus, who adds: “Once again, our design team has put in an incredible shift. With this latest success story, they have brought us one step closer to becoming the number 1 supplier in the European city bus segment. This also rings true with what many customers say: that the MAN city bus is the most beautiful city bus on the market.”
