MAN upgrades Starachowice plant in readiness for electric bus production

MAN is investing €27.4million in its Polish plant in Starachowice to prepare for the arrival of electric buses with series production of the MAN Lion’s City E to start in 2020.

The next phase of the plant’s modernisation for electric transport is now underway at Starachowice which is part of a Special Economic Zone in Poland. Completion of the works is planned for the end of 2021.

The plant has produced 1,724 buses in the past year and, according to MAN, the expansion will lay the foundations for it to produce zero-emission vehicles in the near future.
