ABU DHABI RECIEVES 99 MERCEDES-BENZ CITARO
Daimler Buses recently delivered 99 Mercedes-Benz city buses to the Abu Dhabi Department of Transport in the United Arab Emirates, which are now starting operations in Abu Dhabi.
The city buses are Mercedes-Benz Citaro low-floor solo buses, which were manufactured at the Daimler Buses production site in Mannheim, Germany and are equipped with the Euro 6 emissions engine. Additionally, the buses are maintained under a five-year full-service contract from Emirates Motor Company Commercial Vehicles (EMC CV), the Mercedes-Benz authorized distributor in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and member of the Alfahim Group family conglomerate.
In 2009 Daimler Buses successfully mastered the market entry in Abu Dhabi with 100 units of the Mercedes-Benz Citaro. This is now the second major order in the United Arab Emirates.
