Mercedes-Benz has always played a pioneering role in the development of environmentally friendly, innovative drive system technologies. With BlueEFFICIENCY Power technology, a benchmark was set as a result of which the Citaro became the first regular-service bus in the world to meet the Euro VI standard. Production itself already focuses on the greatest possible environmental compatibility.
The cathodic dip priming process is almost completely free of solvents. Since 2007, the Citaro has even been available with the "Blue Angel" environmental seal. And at the end of a successful life as an urban bus, its components are excellent candidates for recycling.
