Mercedes-Benz builds more than fancy li-ion hybrid cars. The company's buses, notably the Citaro series, are quite a common sight in European cities. The German company has announced that the new generation of the Citaro G model, known as "bendy-buses" in England, will include BlueTec technology (NOx reduction with AdBlue) paired up with hybrid technology, making it the first series production hybrid bus available for European markets. The Citaro G BlueTec Hybrid uses the most powerful lithium-ion battery installed in any model, totalling 320 kWh. Mercedes claims that the bus is not only green but much cheaper to operate and promises 30 percent fuel savings. Deliveries will start in about seven months.
