The company’s official partner in the UAE, United Motors & Heavy Equipment Co. L.L.C. (UMHE), handed more than a total of ten MAN Lion’s Coaches comprising comprehensive safety equipment. For instance, the coaches are fitted with advanced emergency braking systems (EBA), lane guard systems (LGS), and adaptive cruise control (ACC). They are the first MAN coaches in the UAE with these assistance systems.

On the occasion of the vehicle handover, Franz von Redwitz, MAN Truck & Bus Middle East managing director, stressed that the safety of passengers and road users is one of MAN’s top objectives. “We are very pleased and proud to support Sharjah RTA and our other regional partners with technology and training to increase safety on the roads in the Middle East over the long term.”

UMHE and RTA Sharjah plan to work together closely on this theme in the future, too, as confirmed by Khalifa Saif Darwish AI Ketbi, managing director of UMHE, and Yousuf Saleh Al Suwaiji, chairman of Sharjah RTA.

As its next step, Sharjah RTA has ordered eight more MAN Lion’s Coaches. They comply with the Euro 5 EEV emission standard, meeting cutting-edge environmental standards as well as ensuring safety.
