The basis for this is a unique thermal management system with a heat pump for heating the passenger compartment, as well as temperature control for the battery and connected components. Many of these have been made available for the first time in line with the eCitaro. Its exclusive design is derived from that of the popular Mercedes Benz Citaro and makes for a very distinct appearance – the eCitaro is a very special type of Citaro. The eCitaro buses ordered by ZVB and BOS are characterised by their extensive equipment. Passengers benefit from an air conditioning system, 15 double USB ports for their own end devices and three monitors for providing information during the journey. Passengers with reduced mobility will notice generously dimensioned areas for wheelchairs and pushchairs, as well as tactile handrails with ribbed handle profiles on the doors or the contrast-rich interior design. Bus drivers will appreciate the exterior camera for keeping an eye on cyclists and pedestrians. Interior surveillance cameras and a door-closing warning system with red LED light strip and video surveillance provide for added security.

The eCitaro is fitted with ten battery modules providing a total capacity of 243 kWh which guarantee a range of around 150 kilometres even in difficult conditions. The batteries of the eCitaro buses destined for ZVB and BOS are charged by cable at the depot.
