Mercedes buses with solid-state batteries arrive in Bremen
Daimler Truck has now delivered the first of 20 electric buses with solid-state batteries as ordered by Bremen’s public transport operator BSAG. Another four eCitaro will arrive in Bremen in the coming weeks, while both sides have signed a contract for the delivery of 15 identical buses in 2022.
