Charging management with MAN eManager

MAN eManager is available to help you plan your MAN Lion’s City E deployment as efficiently as possible. Using the application, you can easily control battery charging and air conditioning of your vehicle or your entire electric bus fleet. The timer mode lets you decide when your vehicle should be fully charged – MAN eManager takes care of the rest.

At any time, the application provides you with a real-time overview of the charging progress, the possible range with the current battery status and the estimated time when full charge will be reached. You can also set automatic air conditioning of the passenger area. Depending on the ambient temperature, the interior temperature is optimally adjusted to minimise energy consumption at the start of the journey.

High vehicle uptime

Thanks to intelligent planning and digital control of the charging process, your electric bus fleet is always ready when you need it.

Increased range thanks to thermal preconditioning

Thermal preconditioning of the vehicle optimises the range since less energy is required for heating or cooling the e-bus, especially at the beginning of the journey.

Operation independent of location

Simple remote operation via the application on the RIO platform enables you to control individual vehicles and provides you with an overview of your entire electric bus fleet – conveniently from your office or on the road.

Efficient charging configuration

With MAN eManager you control the charging management of your electric bus fleet simply and conveniently via the RIO platform. Choose between immediate charging and timed charging.
With immediate charging, the MAN Lion’s City E will start to charge as soon as it is connected to the charging column. The RIO platform gives you a constant overview of the battery status, the associated range and the remaining time until the battery is fully charged. This way, you can always keep an eye on when your vehicle is ready for use again.

With timed charging, it is possible to create several timers – depending on vehicle and departure time. If the vehicle is connected to a charging column, the charging process will be started automatically at the optimal time, ensuring that the vehicle is ready for operation at the scheduled departure time. This means that you can plan your vehicle deployment with the highest possible efficiency.

In case of an error during the charging process, the application on the RIO platform will issue a corresponding indication and you can initiate the required corrective actions to ensure smooth operation.

Preconditioning for even longer range

Thanks to the digital service, you can precondition the passenger area of your electric buses overnight with one mouse click. Before leaving the depot at the scheduled departure time, the interior of the MAN Lion’s City E can be precooled or preheated, depending on the outside temperature. You can control the temperature as soon as the charging process has started. During operation, less energy is required for heating or cooling, thus optimising the range of the MAN electric bus. Preconditioning can optionally be set for both immediate and timed charging.
