MAN Individual Lion S Wins Red Dot Design Award 

The recognition of the Individual Lion S models in the Red Dot Design Award is a particularly nice success for MAN Individual ex-works range and the growing Lion S family. Red Dot Design Award 2022 honors emotional and driver-focused Lion S special equipment line from MAN for trucks and vans ex works. The TGX long-haul truck and the TGE van in the Lion S version, with their emotional design, high-quality materials and refined styling elements, are the exclusive top models in their respective series.  

It is precisely because good usability determines the design of commercial vehicles that the choice of colors and materials is so crucial. MAN consistently incorporated the feedback and practical expertise of drivers and business owners right from the development stage of New Truck Generation. MAN always makes sure drivers should feel comfortable in their work and be proud of the job they do. The Lion S models consistently embody this approach. 

On the exterior, the successful design work is evident in the carbon applications on the bumpers and mirrors as well as the red accents combined with the piano black radiator area. The design language is also adopted in the interior. Red decorative stitching on the leather steering wheel, red seat belts, Alcantara leather seats with red diamond stitching and matching armrests and door inserts characterise the interior. The headrests are adorned with red lion embroidery.

The detailed and practical interior and exterior design impressed the independent jury of this year's Red Dot Design Awards. The 48 design experts from 23 countries, concluded that the Lion S models submitted by MAN's color and material design specialists stood out among the numerous products submitted in the "Commercial Vehicles" category and therefore awarded the special lions the coveted Red Dot.
