The Mercedes-Benz eCitaro has been named Germany’s best electric bus. DAIMLER BUSES


The all-electric Mercedes-Benz eCitaro G won the title of best electric bus 2024 in an electric bus comparison test organised by German bus magazine Omnibusspiegel; in last year’s tests, the 12m eCitaro also took the first prize. In addition to test drives on a challenging test circuit leading through the outskirts of Bonn, the jury of 40 international bus professionals also undertook ride-alongs as passengers.

Experienced workshop professionals and service technicians also evaluated the service and repair friendliness of all participating vehicles in a workshop check. Following the extensive test trips, the testers awarded points for passenger comfort, handling for the drivers, manufacturing and finishing quality and the service-friendliness of each bus.
