VDL Bus & Coach has expanded the Citea Electric product range with the 11.5m ‘Light Low Entry’ length variant.
For over two years now, the 9.9m Citea LLE-99 Electric has been running successfully in various operations.
With the introduction of the 11.5m variant, VDL says it is offering operators the opportunity to transport larger numbers of passengers electrically in regional areas.
The Citea LLE-115 Electric can be equipped with various charging options, door configurations and flexible interior solutions.
The new length variant is equipped as standard with the 180kWh battery pack.
This makes it possible to achieve a range of 100-150km without any interim recharging.
Thanks to the high-quality batteries and smart charging solutions, it is possible to achieve a range of up to 500km per day with interim recharging. In addition to the standard CCS plug, a pantograph can be used for quick charging at up to 270kW.
The VDL electric product range consists of three models, namely the Low Floor (also available as the Low Floor Articulated), Low Entry and Light Low Entry.
The lengths vary from 9.9 metres to 18.7 metres.
Around 300 electric VDL buses travel an average of 62,000 km in daily operation, already resulting in a total number of electric kilometres driven of more than 22 million.
This results in CO2 savings of 50 tonnes per day and therefore has a positive impact on air quality.
