More than a conventional design

The CitE has been showed by MAN as the newly developed city truck at the IAA 2018. Together with MAN we developed the cluster concept and design within 6 months, from style definition until final implementation-ready specification. The result is a truck with a unique and memorable cluster design that strengthens the brand experience. The HMI concept includes many innovative highlights
which deviate from the conventional vehicles‘ interaction concept, such as the splitting up of the speedo- and powermeter to make room for the main menu in the display center. The cluster is characterized by easy to understand visual metaphors. The urbanity of the vehicle is visual recognizable in the clean and large-scale design of the cluster.
