Outstanding and future-proof technology, maximum profitability, an unparalleled level of safety and high comfort – this is what the buses from Mercedes‑Benz stand for. As a full-line provider the brand covers the entire spectrum of low-floor city buses through inter-city buses to the touring coaches, flanked by minibuses which also cover the entire range. This is documented by the vehicles exhibited at the Busworld show. This is where Mercedes‑Benz is presenting a representative cross-section of its range in the form of the innovative eCitaro, the versatile Intouro and the Tourismo, which is as profitable as it is safe and comfortable. The Sprinter Travel 75 plays a special role. It is celebrating its world premiere at Busworld. The quartet of buses with the star is uniformly painted in smoke silver metallic at the Busworld show. This colour shade appears elegant and technical in equal measure and perfectly reflects the character of the buses from Mercedes‑Benz.

A simple ideal: combustion engine out, electric drive in – a plug-and-play kind of solution. If only things were so simple! Electromobility actually means completely rethinking urban mobility. That's why e‑mobility from Mercedes‑Benz is about more than just the fully-electric eCitaro; it's about offering a comprehensive system composed of a number of different components. The comprehensive eMobility system takes into account such things as power supply, charging infrastructure, route planning, telematics systems, service concepts and, last but not least, the training of employees.

Sustainability is an important topic for Mercedes‑Benz and Setra: The buses from both leading brands comply with the strictest emission standards and in practice their emissions are often considerably lower than the maximum permitted levels. Not only the environment and society profit from low and in turn resource-conserving fuel consumption, but also the bus companies themselves. The independent jury for the international "busplaner" sustainability award acknowledged these efforts: The Mercedes‑Benz eCitaro and Citaro hybrid as well as the Setra TopClass S 531 DT double-decker bus had all been entered into the competition. All three won in their respective category – three nominations for the buses led to three victories.
