Overview

The MAN NGxx3F is a series of low-floor single-deck articulated city bus chassis for 18.00 to 18.75 metres length, offered by MAN since 1998, with internal code A24. They are based on the integral low-floor articulated MAN NGxx3 Lion's City G (A23). Available versions since launch include NG263F, NG313F, NG323F, NG353F, NG363F and CNG version NG313F CNG.

The NG363F is essentially a low-floor single-decker articulated city bus chassis, fitted with a 360hp engine.

SMRT Buses

SMRT made a total purchase of 40 of NG363Fs between 2013 and 2014.

Demonstrator

In 2013, SMRT received a NG363F demonstrator, bodied by Gemilang Coachwork. Based on the Lion's City G design that was licensed by MAN, it resembled the Gemilang bodied NL323Fs, but did not have the Hybrid styled roof attachment. The demonstrator also featured a translucent articulator curtain, which allowed more light into the joint area.

In 2016, the original Spheros air-conditioning units were replaced with Denso ones, same as those fitted on the production batch buses.

Production Batch

In 2014, SMRT announced a purchase of 39 more NG363Fs, with the same specifications as the demonstrator. Like the NL323Fs that were acquired at that time, the production batch NG363Fs had 3 lesser seats installed to provide a larger standing area. Unlike the demonstrator, an opaque articulator curtain was fitted. These buses were the first articulated buses to feature the new SMRT livery.
