The eCitaro G is an articulated bus that is also modern in its interior that meets all the requirements for contemporary passenger transport in urban areas. In the eCitaro G, the continuous low-floor design from the first to the last row of seats guarantees a high level of comfort and fast passenger flow. The 18.13 metre long and 3.40 metre high articulated bus is available with either three or four doors.
Both the door positions and the layout of the passenger area are identical to the Citaro G with its combustion engine. The turning circle, track circle, and turning circle widths are also identical to that of the Citaro G, enabling the eCitaro G to operate the same way in traffic.
The eCitaro G can be manoeuvred safely even in narrow streets. The front and rear sections are connected to Mercedes-Benz’s unique jack-knife control system (ATC) by the tried-and-tested low-floor articulation. This innovative technology guarantees a high level of stability and impressive manoeuvrability. Manoeuvring is extremely convenient even in reverse gear thanks to the independent wheel suspension on the front axle. This makes the eCitaro G particularly manoeuvrable and also increases driving comfort. The eCitaro G's drive technology is precisely matched to its special vehicle concept. For example, the eCitaro G is designed as standard as an articulated pusher bus with its driven axle in the rear section. What's more, we tailor it precisely to the transport company's individual requirements. If, for example, the requirements for power and traction are particularly high, perhaps because of the topography or demanding conditions in winter operation, a version with two driven axles is also available. The ZF AVE 130 electric axle is then used not only as a rear axle, but also as a centre axle. This special configuration guarantees superior performance and excellent vehicle traction – even when the eCitaro G is on the road in difficult conditions. And there's another advantage that csn further increase profitability: the second drive axle increases the eCitaro G's recuperation capacity and decreases its tyre wear.
