The new eCitaro.

Ready for the city of tomorrow.

The eCitaro not only expands the portfolio of the world's best-selling Citaro with an all-electric city bus ready for series production; the eCitaro also raises e-mobility to a completely new level. Its intelligent interaction between innovative battery and charging technology, networking of IT and communication systems, and not least its striking futuristic design make it the new standard for electric city buses, ready today for the city of tomorrow.

The eCitaro is a lot more than an all-electric city bus. It is part of the overall eMobility system from Daimler Buses.

Urban electromobility depends on a good charging infrastructure.

Consulting and service are part of the eCitaro concept.

When cities grow, population growth brings with it an increase in mobility as well. This poses a challenge for municipal authorities – and an opportunity at the same time. In the transformation to an emission-free public transport system, we provide our customers with comprehensive support on all aspects of the overall e-mobility system. Taking into account the specific operational interests and challenges, we develop the appropriate eCitaro concept on a partnership basis. 

eMobility Consulting from Daimler Buses supports transport operators in acquiring vehicles and integrating them into existing transport systems. The choice of charging structure in combination with the appropriate battery technology and the orchestration of the overall e-mobility system are worked out at an early stage in consulting projects. Service and workshop consulting issues are also of central importance for safeguarding ongoing operations. 

The eCitaro is not a prototype; it is a fully developed e-bus. It has to pass the same tests as every other bus emblazoned with the three-pointed star, because the all-electric eCitaro has to guarantee the same high level of availability as a city bus with a conventional drive system. To do this, Mercedes-Benz has tested the eCitaro on locations ranging from the Polar Circle to the blazing summer heat of Spain..
