Man hybrid buses regenerate braking energy

The Man hybrid buses regenerate the braking energy, with smoother braking, better conservation of the mechanical braking elements and maximum use of the energy storage system.
They have the new Arrive & Go function, with which the bus operates exclusively in electric mode when it approaches a stop, during and when it starts to travel without emitting gases or polluting the environment. The vehicles will run on the different Dbus bus lines. They have two usb chargers to charge the electronic devices for free during the trip. All the lighting of the vehicles is led, which allows for greater energy savings, including that of the exterior signs, which allow greater visibility.
