Mercedes-Benz Citaro G BlueTEC Bus in Operation

More than 250 from 15 countries recently had the to experience first-hand the Mercedes-Benz G BlueTec Hybrid articulated bus in for the first time.

Experts European transport operations a number of features of the 18-metre hybrid city bus, its completely emission-free operation on stretches of the route, its quiet, jerk-free drive system, its vehicle concept incorporating electric wheel hub motors, and its use of the world’s largest lithium-ion battery. This battery the energy from the diesel and the electrical energy recuperated braking.

As a result the Mercedes-Benz G BlueTec Hybrid reduces consumption by up to 30 percent, with a reduction in highly topical CO2

The new hybrid bus has successfully completed practical trials over months, including several of winter trials under tough operating conditions the Arctic Circle.

The first will be delivered to the transport before the end of this year.

appropriate public sector for hybrid technology, market expect a potential annual for at least 300 hybrid buses in Europe, which would diesel fuel consumption, CO2 and pollutant emissions in the cities to be reduced.

In North America the bus brand Orion already has hybrid buses in day-to-day which makes it the world leader for hybrid technology in vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz Citaro G BlueTec

The Mercedes-Benz Citaro G BlueTec has a technologically very sophisticated, hybrid drive system allows emission-free driving battery power alone short distances.

The drive is installed in an articulated Citaro G and drives the centre and rear by means of four wheel hub – a combination that makes articulated hybrid bus unique.

The engine in the serial hybrid bus not act as a primary drive unit, but drives the generator to produce power as required. This is stored by maintenance-free lithium-ion mounted on the roof.

The batteries are not fed by the diesel generator, but also energy recuperated during

The energy generated by recuperation braking on the approach to bus-stops or lights is used both to the vehicle at standstill and when off. This means the hybrid bus is able to operate under electric power, and practically without emissions, stationary and under acceleration – a significant reduction in noise as

Power is transferred to the wheels of the G BlueTec Hybrid by four wheel hub motors on the centre and axles. Even under operating conditions, the 320 kW total of the wheel hub motors is ample for an bus.

Downsizing is among the advantages of the serial hybrid in the Citaro: instead of the large, six-cylinder in-line engine employed in an articulated bus, a compact unit with a of 4.8 litres is used.

As a result the engine weight is from around 1000 kg to 450 kg.

World’s first lithium-ion in this output category

The battery used in the articulated G BlueTec Hybrid is in an output of its own.

The battery system 180 kW and is com para tively light in at under 350 kg.

Major advantages con ventional battery systems a higher energy density with a high storage and a low battery weight.

Changes in the industry are increasing the demand for efficient and economical vehicles. to forecasts, the market volume for lithium-ion batteries is set to exceed the €10 mark over the next with the market for battery exceeding €4 billion.

In Germany alone, the government at least one million electric populating the roads in the cities by

40 years of Daimler hybrid

With diesel-electric hybrid from Orion in North Mercedes-Benz in Europe and Mitsubishi in Asia, Daimler not only has the but also the most extensive with alternative drive for commercial vehicles.

The new Citaro hybrid drive is a major towards great economy and driving.

Despite fuel of up to 30 percent, this complex technology nonetheless requires financing. The support of politicians and the sector in the form of subsidies is to make the one-third higher for this technology in large-scale worthwhile for both customers and
