German Utility Takes Delivery of 12 CNG-Powered Mercedes-Benz Buses


Hartmut Schick, Head of Daimler Buses, handed over the symbolic key for twelve Mercedes-Benz Citaro NGT buses to Dr Walter Casazza, manager of the public utility Augsburger Stadtwerke.

For more than a year, Augsburg’s bus fleet has been using RNG, and it is the first city in Germany with an almost CO2-neutral regular service. As the most important local public transportation company in the region, the Augsburger Stadtwerke currently run a bus fleet of 89 vehicles, all of which are powered by natural gas. The 12 Citaro NGT are a follow on delivery to the first Citaro NGT with new engine technology that was delivered in December 2015.
