More Mercedes-Benz gas buses head for Norway

Stuttgart – Transport operator Tide ASA has ordered 37 EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) variants of the Mercedes-Benz Citaro articulated bus with gas drive. Powered by natural gas, the low-floor urban buses are characterised by their low emissions – particularly when it comes to nitrogen oxides and particulates – and already significantly exceed the Euro 5 emissions values currently in force. The driving force behind the buses is the M 447 hLAG natural gas engine, which is available in two power output variants producing 185 kW (252 hp) and 240 kW (326 hp).
Tide ASA is one of the largest transport operators in Norway offering both road and water-based public transport services. The company has 3700 employees and operates around 1000 coaches and buses and also 80 ferries and express boats.
Citaro natural gas buses are available in two length variants, namely a single vehicle measuring 12 m and an articulated vehicle measuring 18 m in length. The Norwegians have opted for the 18 m articulated bus which can accommodate up to 138 passengers.
