Daimler : The fully-electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro will soon be on the road in Poland

06/16/2021 | 04:34am EDT
  • First electric order for Daimler Buses from Poland: 24 units of the Mercedes-Benz eCitaro for the port city of Gdynia in the Gulf of Gdańsk.
  • Mirko Sgodda, Head of Marketing, Sales & Customer Services at Daimler Buses: 'We're particularly pleased about the first order from Poland for the Mercedes-Benz eCitaro as Poland is one of our key markets in Eastern Europe.'
  • Artur Konarski, Managing Director of Daimler Buses in Poland adds: 'The first order for the fully electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro is a particularly special moment for our Polish sales organization. In the past year, we were the market leader in Poland for diesel-powered urban buses. Now we're really pleased to be in position to deliver an order of 24 locally emission-free vehicles with an electric drive and that we're making a contribution to sustainable public transport of the future in Poland.'
  • The vehicles are equipped with the second-generation lithium-ion batteries for a high range, not to mention assistance systems which further enhance safety.

Stuttgart / Gdynia. Daimler Buses has received its first order for fully electric city buses in Poland. The planned order is made up of eight articulated buses and 16 solo buses. They are expected to be delivered this year. The locally emission-free urban buses will be operated in the port city of Gdynia in the Gulf of Gdańsk by the Przedsiębiorstwo Komunikacji Autobusowej Sp. z o.o. (PKA Gdynia) transport company.

First e-mobility order from Poland

'We're particularly pleased about the first order from Poland for the Mercedes-Benz eCitaro as Poland is one of our key markets in Eastern Europe,' explains Mirko Sgodda, Head of Marketing, Sales & Customer Services at Daimler Buses. Artur Konarski, Managing Director of the local Daimler Buses organization adds: 'In the past year, we were the market leader in Poland for conventionally-powered urban buses. Now we're really pleased to be in position to deliver an order of 24 locally emission-free vehicles with an electric drive and that we're making a contribution to sustainable public transport in Poland.'

The fully electric city buses from Mercedes-Benz are characterized by the latest-generation lithium-ion batteries. They can be rapidly recharged either using a plug connection or a pantograph with a charging output of up to 300 kW. Besides the standard plug-in connection which is available, the eCitaro can also be charged using an additional plug-in connection at the rear of the vehicle. What's more, the buses also feature a pre-conditioning system. With this, the battery and passenger compartment are brought up to the appropriate temperature to ensure that the vehicle is already at the right temperature before it leaves the depot. The greatest possible efficiency is thus guaranteed and the energy consumption optimized.

Increased safety thanks to assistance systems and connection to the Omniplus ON digital fleet management system

The city buses are still equipped with the latest driver assistance systems in order to increase safety for driver and passengers alike. Among the most striking of these systems is the automatic braking assistant Preventive Brake Assist and the turning aid Sideguard Assist. The connection of the buses to the Omniplus ON fleet management system ensures that the vehicle condition is continually monitored whilst also showing any recommendations for required servicing work. This helps ensure that the fleet remains operational.

Poland's Tri-City: Gdynia - Sopot - Gdańsk

Gdynia is a port city in Poland's Gulf of Gdańsk. In the Pomeranian Voivodeship, it forms the Tri-City metropolitan area together with biggest city Gdańsk and the smaller town Sopot. Today, Gdynia has around 250,000 inhabitants and is thus the twelfth biggest city in Poland.

The transport network in Gdynia includes both buses and trolleybuses. The Mercedes-Benz eCitaro buses for Gdynia will be the first electric buses in the entire Tri-City metropolitan region.

Mercedes-Benz eCitaro: modular concept for better quality of life in cities

Presented in 2018, the fully electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro is a locally emission-free and quiet city bus which is making a massive step in the direction of improving the quality of life in cities and metropolitan areas. Mercedes-Benz recently added a new member to the Citaro family in the form of the eCitaro G articulated bus. Mercedes-Benz supplies tailor-made city buses: the eCitaro is based on an extremely flexible modular concept for solo and articulated buses, as well as various battery and charging technologies.
