Citaro hybrid

Safe driving

Numerous assistance systems support the driver. Mercedes-Benz was, for example, the first bus manufacturer worldwide to equip its vehicles with the anti-lock braking system (ABS) and the Electronic Stability Program (ESP®). On the Citaro G hybrid, the Articulation Turntable Controller (ATC) guarantees optimal steering behaviour by the rapid, requirements-based hydraulic damping of the articulation. Meanwhile, Acceleration Skid Control (ASR) prevents the drive wheels from spinning. With the Electropneumatic Braking System (EBS) the stopping distance is significantly shortened, as the brakes are actuated more quickly and precisely. Ensuring pre-emptive braking and manoeuvring are the Preventive Brake Assist and Sideguard Assist systems.

The virtually maintenance-free hybrid storage module is located outside the crash area—at the back of the roof. By using the innovative 48 V low-voltage technology, the Citaro hybrid poses no increased safety risk and, moreover, the low-voltage technology requires no change in service and maintenance— saving additional costs.
