5 Citeas SLF-120 Electric for HTM in The Hague

On 23 January the Hague public transport company HTM signed a contract for an order for 5 Citeas SLF-120 Electric from VDL Bus & Coach, with a possible option for a further 3 buses. This is the first step in the Hague carrier’s transition to completely zero emission bus transport.

In addition to these electric buses, VDL will also provide the charging infrastructure, including the complete installation and project management. This makes VDL not only a bus supplier but also a system supplier. The buses, which have a pantograph on the roof, are charged quickly during the day by means of opportunity charging and are also charged at night so as to balance the batteries. This allows the buses to be used for an entire day.



VDL Bus & Coach as a trusted partner for transition projects

This is now the 9th VDL project in the Netherlands in the transition to completely zero emission bus transport. In Eindhoven, Venlo, Groningen, Maastricht and other cities the public is already benefiting from these quiet, clean buses. Together, all the VDL electric buses that are in operation cover an average of 21,000 kilometres a day. VDL Bus & Coach is a pioneer in the transition to clean, quiet public transport. With smart charging strategies and tailor-made buses, almost any form of zero emission public bus transport can be provided.
