On the starting line in 1997 are the low-floor Citaro solobus and Citaro G articulated bus in their classic lengths of around 12 and 18 metres. Just one year later, the cross-country Citaro Ü/GÜ models are added. In 2005, the low-entry Citaro LE/LE Ü with a low-floor front and high-floor rear joins them, along with the right-hand-drive Citaro and imposing four-axle high-capacity articulated bus, the CapaCity, based on the Citaro. Again just a year on from this, the compact, particularly agile Citaro K, only 10.5 metres long, becomes part of the range. With the second generation of the Citaro, the impressive, 21-metre, four-axis CapaCity L adds a further XXL member to the family.
