ELECTRIFYING EUROPE TOUR

 

Almost 2,500 kilometers. Eight countries in 10 days. One team. From April 29 to May 8, 2022, the Lion's City E was on the road in Europe - fully electric on its way from Munich to Limerick. Here you can review the unique tour and learn a lot about the future of electrified city buses.

The Pontlatz Bridge crosses the river in the upper Tyrolean Inn Valley between Fließ and Prutz. It dates back to 1899. 

Glamour, here we come! The team has reached St. Moritz. This is where the drive technology of the future and the flair of sophisticated life meet. 

Not only a raw material for cooking oil and animal feed - rapeseed can also be used to produce biofuels. What's more, our bus simply looks great in the rapeseed field.

Growing food: The 367-hectare Rosières solar park can supply up to 115 megawatts of electricity. Makes the Lion's City E's mouth water. 

Picture with symbolic value: In Brussels, a landmark for climate-friendly mobility meets a monument to nuclear energy.

Copper Coast: In southern County Waterford, Ireland's coast is rocky, yet appears gentle and soft. The sleepy country strand owes its name to the copper mines that operated here in the 19th century, and is now a UNESCO Global Geopark.
