Cities are becoming more environmentally friendly and enjoying a higher quality of life thanks to the all-electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro. This is underscored by its latest accolade in the form of the environmental label “Blue Angel”. For more than 40 years it has been the German government’s environmental label and it is awarded by independent institutions. The coveted eco-label proves the eCitaro’s environmental friendliness and the exemplary path it is taking towards locally emission-free local public transport. The eCitaro is the first fully-electric city bus entitled to bear this environmental label.

Jenaer Nahverkehr GmbH is the first transport operator to receive three eCitaro vehicles with the “Blue Angel”. The company operates local public transport in the Thuringian university city, with a fleet including 43 city buses on 13 routes. The three eCitaro models form the foundation for the first electric bus fleet in Thuringia. They are also equipped with current collectors for intermediate charging via plugs. The order also encompasses charging infrastructure, including a current collector charging station at the depot and at the “Westbahnhof” railway station. The safety equipment of the buses is also impressive and includes Sideguard Assist.

The “Blue Angel” eco-label for the Mercedes-Benz eCitaro is further proof of the successful commitment to sustainable public transport in cities and conurbations. This battery-powered city bus thus stands for environmentally-respectful local public transport, contributing to air purity and therefore to enhancing the quality of life in cities.
