Danish bus company, Vikingbus has ordered 31 Mercedes-Benz eCitaro electric buses for use in Køge, Denmark.

The buses will operate in the harbour town south of Copenhagen, where the regular service also includes trips to the municipality of Stevn. This is the longest city bus line in Denmark, with some routes travelling over 500 kilometres a day.

Unlike previous models, the 31 eCitaro vehicles feature NMC3 batteries with a high energy density and a total capacity of 588kWh that can achieve this range on a single charge.
