E-mobility in series production

The new generation city bus.

Electromobility is a challenge, both for private customers and for transport operators, working with fixed, fine-tuned web of bus line networks, timetables and duty rotas. You wish to exchange 1:1 internal-combustion-powered city buses for all-electric buses. However, as a rule this is not possible without carrying out some modifications, so that a thorough preparation is required. Electric mobility means rethinking urban mobility with buses. Mercedes-Benz supports transport operators in this endeavour, pursuing a systematic solution: The eCitaro is not just a city bus, it is far more. It is part of the Daimler Buses overall eMobility system. 

The eCitaro is a bus fully matured for operation in urban transport. In order to ensure this, this all-electric bus is subjected to rigorous tests. At temperatures lower than 15 degrees Celsius below zero in the polar circle and of more than 30 degrees Celsius in Spain's summer heat, it has proven its maturity for series production. The winter tests include, among other things, driving tests on low-grip surfaces to check driving dynamics control systems and recuperation. The eCitaro passed summer tests in strenuous city traffic and on steep ascents and descents in the Sierra Nevada.

When opting for an all-electric city bus the issue of overall profitability arises. Here it is necessary to consider various factors such as the possible financial support of electric buses and the follow-up costs must also be monitored closely.
