With the new Citaro hybrid Mercedes-Benz is opening a new drive chapter for urban buses. It was specially developed for the demands of regular service in conurbations and stands for timely mobility with reduced consumption. The economical diesel or gas engine is supported by the additional drive power of a highly efficient, compact hybrid module. The 14 kW electric motor generates energy when coasting and braking. It therefore supports the combustion or gas engine when moving off. This reduces the fuel consumption depending on use up to a maximum of 8.5 per cent.
