The Mercedes-Benz eCitaro, even in its current version with third-generation lithium-ion batteries (NMC°3), represents the highest level of city bus electromobility. It combines the tried-and-tested Citaro platform with a modular battery, charging and drive technology, and unrivalled safety standards. The eCitaro has been available with the latest NMC 3 batteries since the end of 2022. Behind the acronym NMC°3 is a new generation of high-performance batteries. Their greatest advantage is their enormous capacity, which allows the vehicle to cover long distances without opportunity charging. The improved cell chemistry, combined with its optimised battery pack, leads to a considerable increase in capacity by around 50°percent at the same weight. The new battery generation already meets ECE R 100-3 safety requirements which will not come into force until autumn 2023. As has been customary from the start with the eCitaro, different configurations of equipment are possible both for the solo bus and for the articulated bus eCitaro G. The eCitaro solo bus is available with a minimum of four and a maximum of six battery packs with a total capacity of up to 588°kWh. The eCitaro G articulated bus is equipped with a minimum of four, and a maximum of seven battery packs and a total capacity of up to 686°kWh.
