Since June 16, a fleet of thirteen VDL Citea SLFA-181 Electric buses is in operation in Helsingborgs, southern Sweden, on the new BRT line operated by Arriva Sweden. As a turnkey supplier, VDL Bus & Coach is also responsible for the delivery and implementation of the charging infrastructure.

The 13 articulated VDL Electric buses are equipped with 169-kWh high-power batteries and a pantograph on the roof for quick charging at the terminus. They are in BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) version with a very attractive, modern interior design, as well as a coffee bar-like area for standing passengers.

With this order, VDL Bus & Coach has realized its fourth electric mobility project in Sweden while in Western Europe it has already completed over 50 projects of this type.
