Daimler debuts next-gen fuel cell bus in Hamburg, fuel consumption in half

Citaro FuelCELL-Hybrid — above for high-res image

Daimler this week the first of its new generation Mercedes-Benz FuelCELL-Hybrid transit buses. of these new buses will be into service in 2010 the first 10 going to Hamburg where previous-generation fuel buses have already in service for several years. The new use the latest iteration of Daimler’s cell drive system consists of a modular stack By building the fuel cell in modules, it can be scaled for different with the same hardware in the bus and the new series of B-class F-Cell Twenty of the fuel cell will also be going to for use by the transit company.


press release

New fuel bus will be in service in Hamburg year

• New generation with 50 percent lower fuel

• 10 new fuel cell for Hamburger Hochbahn

Stuttgart / 16th November 2009 The new Citaro FuelCELL-Hybrid made its appearance in its future operating of Hamburg today. The exceptional of this latest-generation fuel hybrid bus is its outstanding environmental The bus emits absolutely no pollutants in motion, and it’s also silent, making it ideal for use in congested inner cities and areas. From next no less than ten of the 30 vehicles Daimler Buses is producing for transport operators are destined for the transport authority. In addition, Hochbahn will take of 20 Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL starting 2010, which are equipped with a fuel drive system.

The Citaro is taking part in large-scale trials which are due to take in Hamburg and other European This is a follow-up to the European successful CUTE and HyFLEET:CUTE which were carried out 2003 to 2009. In the HyFLEET:CUTE a total of 36 Mercedes-Benz Citaro equipped with the second-generation cell drive system performed outstandingly for 12 public agencies on three continents, them Hamburger Hochbahn AG. In than 140,000 hours of during which they a total of more than 2.2 gererated kilometres, these compatible Mercedes-Benz buses impressively demonstrated their to function reliably under conditions.

Intelligent use of synergies in the passenger car and vehicle sectors

The new Citaro clearly demonstrates that mobility is already feasible also with commercial says Hartmut Schick, of Daimler Buses. Besides, potentials with our Mercedes-Benz car development and Daimler research can be used in particular with the cell drive system.

For the FuelCELL-Hybrid and the B-Class F-CELL, successfully follows the cost-effective of using common parts. such as fuel cell can be used as modules for both and commercial vehicles, for example: the new FuelCELL-Hybrid bus is e.g. powered by two cell systems of the same used in the B-Class F-CELL. to improved fuel cell and hybridisation with lithium-ion the Citaro FuelCELL-Hybrid consumes 50 percent less hydrogen to the preceding generation. The operating of the fuel cell bus is around 250 The fuel cell drive is also practically maintenance-free, and has a operating life.

The global initiative Shaping Transportation consolidates all the activities for mobility in the commercial vehicles at Daimler AG. The aim of this initiative is to use efficient drive systems with alternative fuels to zero-emission commercial vehicles for transportation needs. Shaping Transportation means conserving and reducing emissions of all kinds, ensuring the highest possible of traffic safety. The Citaro developed with the support of the Union, plays a major in this.

Prof. Kohler, President e-drive Future at Daimler AG: Our intensive research and conducted since 1994 has us to bring the fuel cell to production maturity. This us to entrust two fully practical vehicles with battery-electric and cell drive systems to our the smart fortwo electric and the B-Class F-CELL. The main now is to achieve a competitive cost in comparison with conventionally vehicles and to create a full of electric and hydrogen filling in cooperation with energy and the petroleum industry.

Large-scale project using cell vehicles

In this project for the use of fuel cell in Hamburg, Daimler is cooperating the city council as well as Shell, Total und Vattenfall The aim is to accelerate the creation of an emission-free fleet and establish an appropriate of hydrogen filling stations. The is part of the Clean Energy in Hamburg and Berlin. It is being by the federal German government as of the National Innovation Program for and fuel cell technology

As part of this cooperation, public filling stations hydrogen pumps are to be constructed in enabling fuel cell to be refuelled within minutes. to the high hydrogen pressure of 700 their operating range then exceed 400 kilometers. large operating range make locally emission-free cell vehicles fully to long-distance operations.
