MAN Lion's Chassis
MAN Lion's Chassis is a series of modular chassis made to replace most of MAN's rear-engined low-entry, intercity and coach chassis. It was first introduced at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2008 in Hanover. MAN prospected both two- and tri-axle low-entry, two-axle intercity and two- and tri-axle coach versions. The first of the intercity version appeared in 2008, the two-axle low-entry version in 2009 and both coach versions in 2010. The tri-axle low-entry version may have been abandoned. The models that the Lion's Chassis was set to replace weren't discontinued until the end of 2013. All chassis versions can be delivered as either a rolling chassis with shortened wheelbase for transport or as CIB ("Chassis in the box" — partly assembled kit).
