A total of 189 MAN Lion’s City buses have been ensuring that residents and tourists of Trondheim, Norway, arrive at their destinations safely, comfortably and, above all, in an environmentally friendly manner. The vehicles are powered with biogas or biodiesel, allowing the Norwegian city to rely on efficient and clean solutions for inner-city traffic.

With over 190,000 residents, Trondheim is Norway’s third-largest city.

MAN Truck & Bus delivered 105 city buses to Vy Buss AS and another 84 vehicles to Tide Buss AS.

“We’re delighted that the two largest transport companies in Norway put their trust in us,” said Rudi Kuchta, head of product and sales Bus at MAN Truck & Bus. “The buses are powered with biogas or biodiesel, which means they fit in wonderfully with the quiet and natural environment in Trondheim – you just want to take in a deep breath of air!”


The modern alternative drive forms perfectly complement the image of a green, smog-free city, and are also exceptionally economical. Numerous Scandinavian metropolises and cities are already switching to new types of drive solutions, with the objective to significantly reduce the carbon footprint when it comes to public transport.
