2019 Electric Mercedes eCitaro Bus & printer City 75 Unveiling – Video
It emits zero local emissions and runs almost silently. It combines the thousandfold proven platform of the world’s best-selling city bus with new technological solutions. The all-electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro takes electric mobility using city buses to a new level altogether. The new eCitaro offers an impressive and unprecedented standard in energy efficiency, courtesy of its innovative thermal management system that uses innovative components available for the first time with the launch of the eCitaro. Its performance enables the eCitaro to cover a large part of the requirements of the transport operators right from the start. In addition, it is ready for the battery technology of the near future – the performance capabilities will increase quickly. At the same time, due to the high development effort and extensive testing, it comes to the starting line already fully matured. In addition, the intelligent modular concept of battery and charging technology is compelling. Its design fuses the basic shape of the Citaro with elements of the Mercedes‑Benz Future Bus into a distinct appearance. It is also more than just a city bus: Mercedes-Benz takes a holistic view of electric mobility, embedding the eCitaro firmly in its overall eMobility system. In addition, the eCitaro is the starting signal on the road to an electric future.

The new Mercedes‑Benz Sprinter forms the basis for a totally new generation of the successful minibuses bearing the three-pointed star. As before, they comprise the model series Sprinter City, Sprinter Transfer, Sprinter Mobility and Sprinter Travel. The names stand unchanged for operations in line service, as a versatile shuttle bus, for transport of passengers with limited mobility, and for tourist transport. As a result, the Sprinter as a minibus again covers all conceivable types of operations. However, Mercedes‑Benz Minibus GmbH has restructured the product range in detail and has extensively revised or completely redesigned the individual models. The Sprinter City 75 with exclusive technology plays a prominent role in this regard. All models of the new generation are based on the Sprinter with rear-wheel drive or optionally all-wheel drive.
