Neue BVG wagen ADL

The forum is in reduced operation. The Addon and Support forums remain open.
Please note that OMSI is no longer under development. Some of the developers are now working on a new simulator. Further information concerning the LOTUS-Simulator can be found here.
  • As far as i know it were multiple reasons for why MAN decided not to take part in this order, i'd guess for example creating a whole new assembly line just for the BVG and the fact that the BVG is not what you would call your best customer.

  • As for the SBST one, MAN only provides the chassis, engine and cockpit systems. The rest is done by a foreign company which specialises in doing bodyworks for the asian market. Double deckers are very popular in Asia - especially Singapore and Hong Kong. In Germany Neoman would build the entire bus - from chassis to body and only for one single transport company (BVG) which is simply unprofitable in the long term. And I guess that is the main reason.

  • Because BVG felt the Alexander Dennis product was superior? The Enviro platform is in use globally. Just because they're in Germany doesn't automatically give a home team advantage to MAN. The previous DL05 etc. weren't exactly well-received by BVG.
