Daimler Buses has delivered the first Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses as part of the largest order ever to Germany’s biggest bus fleet. A Citaro solo bus and a Citaro G articulated bus are the pioneers; as many as 948 Citaros are to follow, 20 of which will be delivered this year.
Over the next few years, BVG will be able to call on up to 600 articulated buses and 350 solo buses incrementally. They are powered by efficient and low-emission Euro VI engines.
The BVG has ordered an additional 15 units of the new, all-electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro. They will be delivered from the first quarter of 2019.
