Berlin will be the setting for the official presentation of the new generation VDL Citea. This world premiere will take place during the international exhibition InnoTrans 2022, from 20 to 23 September in the capital of Germany. VDL Bus & Coach will demonstrate its new city bus, an LF-122, which is entirely based on an all-electric driveline. InnoTrans is the world’s largest transport technology exhibition.

VDL Citea new generation InnoTrans

The introduction of the new generation of Citeas is VDL Bus & Coach’s answer to the challenges of tomorrow’s public transport. Whereas in recent years ‘Aiming for Zero’ was the ambition, zero emissions is now the norm for the liveable city, VDL strengthens.

VDL states that “Not only is the range of the new VDL Citea significantly improved, one of the most important starting points in the development of the new generation Citea was to increase the number of passengers and their comfort”.

Alex de Jong, Business Manager Public Transport: “With the new generation VDL Citea VDL offers a public transport product range in which there is no reason not to use a zero emission public transport bus. The necessary conditions such as passenger capacity, range and Total Cost of Operation are all met in accordance to market demand, zero compromise. During InnoTrans visitors can experience the new generation VDL Citea for themselves. We will be present on the outdoor area, where we will present the new generation VDL Citea on the so-called Bus display. In addition, we will organize knowledge sessions in and around the bus and all the necessary information about the new generation VDL Citea will be available for our guests’.
