The new Citaro NGT with natural gas powertrain celebrated its world premiere at "Busworld", the international bus trade show in the Belgian city of Kortrijk. It impresses with quiet running and reduced CO2 emissions – both are essential advantages for transporting passengers in highly congested city centers. Thanks to its low weight, it can transport a great number of passengers.
The Citaro NGT is powered by the new Mercedes-Benz M 936 G natural gas engine. The new high-tech natural gas engine is extremely efficient: Compared with its predecessor, the "Citaro CNG," fuel consumption of the Citaro NGT has been cut by up to 20 percent. The Citaro NGT can be operated on natural gas and on biogas. In the latter case, it has an almost net zero carbon footprint. Consequently, it sets standards with regard to eco-friendliness. This powertrain variant is available as a Citaro NGT solo bus and as a Citaro G NGT articulated bus.
The following film presents some first impressions and shows the advantages of the new Citaro NGT.
