VDL Citea SLF Electric wins Busworld Ecology Label

The VDL Citea SLF-120 Electric has been awarded with a Busworld Ecology Label during the Busworld award ceremony. This label is a clear indication that full electric buses are the ultimate solution for urban mobility. The fast charge buses from VDL score very well on total environmental performance. The small battery packs reduce the carbon footprint drastically in comparison to buses with large batteries.

Ecological benefits
In combination with a fast charging pantograph, it is possible to drive longer distances during the day. On energy and emission level, the fully electric climate system with an efficient heat-pump has a positive impact on the energy balance of the vehicle. Further ecological benefits were found in the upholstery of passenger seats which are Cradle-2-Cradle certified. The VDL Citea SLF-120 Electric is available for test drives during the whole Busworld exhibition, so everybody is welcome to experience the difference this VDL Citea Electric makes!
