Baden-Wettingen Regional Transport RVBW in the Swiss canton of Aargau is continuing to implement its e-strategy with ten Mercedes-Benz eCitaro vehicles. The locally CO2 neutral solo low-floor buses will be delivered next year. Daimler Buses as the general contractor will deliver the complete e-mobility system as a turnkey solution, including the entire charging infrastructure, charging management, and conversion measures. Extensive comparative tests preceded the order.RVBW's ambitious objective is to be a climate neutral company by 2030. To this end the bus fleet will be completely converted to e-mobility. An essential component of this is the recently placed order for ten eCitaro. In addition to the solo low-floor buses, it also includes the complete charging infrastructure at the depot, including all the necessary reconstruction measures and the charging management system. This was preceded by extensive testing:Drivers & workshop personnel and other employees at the company took a close look at the cockpit, the handling, the passenger compartment and how easy the vehicles are to service and repair as part of a competitor comparison.The equipment for the RVBW's three-door buses are considerable. Five stacks of nickel-manganese-cobalt batteries with a total energy content of 490 kWh guarantee a long range. The batteries are charged in the depot using infrastructure-incorporated top-down pantographs and the high-power contact rail on the top of the vehicle. The Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System for audible environmental protection warns passers-by of the approach of the silent electric buses.Passengers benefit from an interior that is as appealing as it is comfortable, with night lighting and double-glazed side windows. They are provided with information on a double TFT display in the front section. Another TFT screen above door two provides information about the route being traveled. Rapid-response swiveling-sliding doors at door positions two and three ensure that passengers can quickly disembark and embark at stops.Drivers also receive maximum assistance for their work. This starts with an air-conditioned seating area and also includes video surveillance of the passenger compartment, an electrically adjustable inside rearview mirror, and a reversing camera.
