Mercedes-Benz Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid

Mercedes-Benz Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid(2008)

The Mercedes-Benz (Daimler AG) Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid is equipped with a technologically highly sophisticated, serial hybrid-drive system which uses electric wheel hub motors. It's capable of emissions-free operation under battery power alone over short distances. The diesel engine doesn't operate as a drive unit, but instead powers the generator to produce electricity as required.

The Mercedes-Benz (Daimler AG) Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid is equipped with a technologically highly sophisticated, serial hybrid drive system which uses electric wheel hub motors. It's capable of emissions-free operation under battery power alone over short distances. The diesel engine doesn't operate as a drive unit, but instead powers the generator to produce electricity as required. The diesel engine has no mechanical connection to the drive axles. The generated current is stored by maintenance free lithium-ion batteries, which are installed on the roof of the Citaro. The batteries aren't only charged by the diesel generator, but also by energy obtained during braking, in a process known as recuperation. The power's transferred to the wheels of the Citaro Hybrid by four 80 kW electric wheel hub motors at the centre and rear axles.

The energy recuperated during braking's used both to power the vehicle when at standstill and when moving off. When approaching a bus stop, at standstill and when accelerating away from the stop, the hybrid bus's able to operate under electrical power alone and therefore with practically no emissions which also means a significant reduction in noise and fuel consumption.
