The Citaro hybrid is celebrating its world premiere at Busworld Europe. With it, Mercedes-Benz is striking new paths: the hybrid drive is to be available as special equipment for a variety of model variants of the bestselling urban bus, even for the Citaro NGT with a gas engine. The Citaro hybrid, together with the new electrohydraulic steering, reduces the fuel consumption of the Citaro, well-known for its efficiency, again by up to 8.5 percent. Benefits of the additional hybrid drive: the installation space is minimal, the external contours remain just as unchanged as the interior, the added weight is low. Transport operators benefit from a quick amortisation, the economy and environment from even lower fuel consumption and emissions.
