In this note we show that a Lie group endowed with a left invariant Finsler function is a generalized Berwald manifold. This observation makes it possible to construct a whole class of generalized Berwald manifolds, thus satisfying a request of Hashiguchi [6]: `... find much more interesting examples'. In particular, we show that the Randers Lie group constructed by Libing and Mo [9] is in fact a proper generalized Berwald manifold. We also have a look at the more specific bi-invariant case, and review some essential results concerning bi-invariant Finsler functions with (at least partly) new and conceptual proofs.
