Bigger artic launched by Mercedes
Mercedes-Benz has launched a 21m-long version of its four-axle 19.5m CapaCity articulated bus. The CapaCity L, based on the Citaro, can carry up to 191 passengers, five more than on the existing model.
A standard Citaro G artic with three axles is 18.1m long and can carry 163 people. Mercedes argues that having just one articulation point improves reliability and cuts maintenance costs compared bi-artic buses.
