Stuttgart / Hanover, 25. September 2014. The Mercedes-Benz Citaro Euro VI received the "Green Bus Award 2014" at the IAA – the world's leading exhibition for commercial vehicles. The prize has been awarded annually since 2011 to a touring coach and an urban bus in alternating years by the specialist publications "Omnibusrevue" and "Busfahrer". This year the trophy has been awarded for the third time in four years to a vehicle from Stuttgart-based Daimler AG.

The award goes to the urban bus displaying the lowest fuel consumption on the demanding "Omnibusrevue" test route in Berlin. The vehicles are tested on a slightly modified variant of urban bus line 200, which entails a highly demanding route limited exclusively to inner-city roads. A continuous succession of bus stops and traffic lights impose the highest demands on the driver and the deployed technology. The Citaro Euro VI is more than a match for these conditions, however, since maximum possible overall economy was a specified requirement in the vehicle's specification book.
