MERCEDES BENZ BUSES * Germany: Electric & Hydrogen ones for 2018
* Stuttgart - Electric and Hydrogen Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses on the road by 2018
Daimler Buses, one of the largest players on the bus market today, announced the approaching of pure electric and hydrogen fuel cell Mercedes-Benz Citaros... Both the E-CELL and F-CELL to be introduced by 2018, which continues to demonstrate the lead already achieved by BYD and their lineup of plug-in buses... Both models will be build on a joint E-Mobility platform and “both powertrain concepts to production standard and on the roads by 2018“... The battery sizes and charging infrastructure will be offered specifically for each tender to meet requirements of particular line. Some electric buses will be charged overnight, while others on the route, using roof-fast charging system... Hopefully Daimler should in the next few years join Volvo and BYD in global bus electrification in the heavy weight class...
