The Scania Citywide is fully customisable and can meet local needs exactly. That makes it ideal for urban fleets anywhere.The low floor model builds on Scania’s existing Citywide line only that their diesel engine has now been replaced with a zero emission drive.

The 12-meter long Citywide bus is equipped with the roof fast charging – OppCharge. This system needs to be active during operation, as Scania prefers to employ a smaller battery pack, so as to not decrease the passenger capacity of the bus.

Visitors at IAA in Hanover have the special opportunity to ride a fully electric Scania Citywide bus, which charges in 10 minutes via a pantograph that is lowered from a charging station.

Three such buses have been in regular operation in the northern Swedish city of Östersund since March 2018, where they are run on a 15 km route with some 40 stops.
