A good, clean job. Starting with production, we take care to make the new Citaro RHD as environmentally compatible as possible. The cathodic dip priming process, for example, is almost completely free of solvents.
With a fuel consumption of 38.7 l/100 km the new Euro VI-certified Citaro turned in an excellent performance in the Record Run Buses 2012 in light of the difficult route (Number 17 bus line in Wiesbaden).It considerably outperformed its predecessors, which are known to be economical, by 3.6 l/100 km or 8.5 per cent. This means the Euro VI-certified Citaro not only delivers on the brand promise of fuel savings of three to five per cent, but can even significantly surpass these figures. Assuming an annual mileage of 60,000 km it also relieves the burden on the environment by 5700 kg in CO2 emissions at the same time.
And when the vehicle is finally withdrawn after long and successful years in service, its components can be recycled. Another example of thinking quality through to the last detail.Typically Mercedes-Benz.
