Mercedes-Benz eCitaro: modular concept for a better quality of life in urban areas

The Mercedes-Benz eCitaro, a very quiet city bus introduced in 2018 with fully-electric drive and locally emission-free, is an important step towards improved quality of life in towns and cities. Recently Mercedes-Benz extended the Citaro family with the articulated eCitaro G. The new eCitaro G is the first city bus in its category anywhere in the world to be equipped with solid-state batteries. The articulated bus has a range of up to 220 kilometres in favourable conditions with average demands on speed, topography and load along with straightforward climatic conditions. Mercedes-Benz supplies the bus to customers’ specifications: the eCitaro is based on a highly flexible module concept of solo and articulated bus, and with a range of batteries and charge technologies.
