Stuttgart/Dresden, May 19, 2011 -
There could hardly be a greater span between history and future than at the present time in Dresden. Anyone riding past Dresden’s most beautiful monuments and squares along bus route 62 can experience this at first hand as he or she will be sitting in an electrically-driven Mercedes-Benz articulated Citaro brand bus. The first three of a total order of eight Mercedes Benz Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid were handed over to Managing Director Reiner Zieschank, representing the Dresden transport company, by Konstantinos Tsiknas, head of Mercedes-Benz Omnibuses Germany, on the Theatre Square on 19 May 2011.

In the next few days, bus passengers in Bremen will have a new experience on the main regular service routes operated by Bremer Straßenbahn AG. The Mercedes-Benz Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid arrives at bus-stops almost silently, and moves off again just as quietly.

Daimler has been offering its highly-efficient BlueTec diesel technology for com-mercial vehicles since early 2005 – and with great success. Since then, around 160,000 BlueTec commercial vehicles have taken to the streets of Europe, includ-ing Mercedes-Benz heavy trucks and Vario vans, as well as Mercedes-Benz and Setra buses. Over 90 percent of these vehicles already fulfill the Euro5 emissions standard not due for introduction until autumn 2009. So far, these BlueTec vehi-cles have saved their operators around 400 million liters of diesel fuel and the envi-ronment 100 million tones of CO2 emissions.
