A vision becomes reality.

Mercedes-Benz is achieving a smooth transition in the development of its city buses: the dynamic, expressive design of the eCitaro takes its stylistic cues from the Mercedes-Benz Future Bus and, with its modern design language, offers a look into the future of Mercedes-Benz buses.

The eCitaro harmoniously combines the established classic look of a city bus with the futuristic design language of bus generations to come. This fascinating meeting point is further enriched by striking details: the Citaro’s elegantly curved windscreen, the slightly lowered roof at the front, the slats with design elements in the front panel and the all-round trim of the roof superstructures.

As expected from a Mercedes-Benz bus, form blends elegantly with function through the integration of folding bumper corners and front panel allowing for ease-of-access servicing and visual inspection.
