Berlin is to be the setting for the official unveiling of VDL’s new generation Citea. The premiere will take place during the Innotrans international transport exhibition, held from 20 to 23 September in the German capital. The new LF-122 is based on an all-electric driveline.
VDL says the introduction of the new generation of Citeas is VDL Bus & Coach’s answer to the challenges of tomorrow’s public transport. Whereas in recent years ‘Aiming for Zero’ was the ambition, zero emissions is now the norm, the manufacturer said, which requires new technologies and a different way of thinking. VDL says its new Citea concept offers solutions without compromise.

Alex de Jong, Business Manager for Public Transport at VDL, said: “With the new generation Citea, VDL offers a public transport product range in which there is no reason not to use a zero-emission public transport bus. The necessary conditions such as passenger capacity, range and total cost of operation are all met in accordance to market demand, with zero compromise.”
