When compared to the fuel buses which were from 2003 within the of the CUTE and HyFLEET:CUTE projects, the new FuelCELL Hybrid boasts innovations: hybridisation with recovery and storage in lithium-ion high-performance electric motors 120 kW continuous power in the wheel electrified PTO units and further fuel cells. These achieve an increased durability of at five years or 12,000 hours. The fuel cell of the new Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid are to those of the Mercedes‑Benz B‑Class with a fuel cell system. Both stacks are on the vehicle’s roof as was the case earlier fuel cell The lithium-ion batteries which, for store recovered power braking are a new addition to the roof. The provided by the energy reservoir that the new Citaro FuelCELL can travel several

kilometres using only power.

In principle, the concept of the new FuelCELL bus with the Mercedes‑Benz BlueTec buses. A diesel generator provides these with the electric energy. In contrast, on the new buses, it is the fuel cells generate electrical current for the motors which boast

Thanks to the improved fuel components and the hybridisation with batteries, the new Citaro FuelCELL saves 50% hydrogen in comparison to the generation. As a result the number of has been reduced from the necessary for the previously tested cell buses to seven and a of 35 kg of hydrogen. The range of the fuel buses is greater than 300 Thanks to these diverse improvements, purely electric with fuel cells for generation are a definite step to being ready for series
