The company behind luxury line Mercedes-Benz is moving into the environmentally friendly vehicle space following a recent recall over diesel emissions software. It just announced the eCitaro, an all-electric version of its gas-powered city bus. Orders have already come in, including ones from transit operators in Hamburg and Berlin for 35 buses. The eCitaro orders are set for delivery later this year. The eCitaro emits zero emissions and is meant to run almost silently. The German car marker is now headed to Silicon Valley to venture into the autonomous vehicle push.
