Pilot with VDL Citea SLFA Electric in Basel


VDL Bus & Coach will deliver a BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) version VDL Citea SLFA-181 Electric to Basler Verkehrs-Betriebe (BVB). This bus is the first electric articulated bus for Switzerland and is part of a pilot project. This pilot project will involve testing on all bus lines in Basel, Switzerland, starting late this year. Through this pilot BVB intends to gain some initial practical experience with electric bus operation. From 2027 BVB will use exclusively 100% renewable drive technology.  
“We look forward to this new bus and are convinced that our passengers will also welcome the electric bus,” says Marcel Kuttler, head of technology at BVB. “The bus is comfortable, quiet and drives on 100% renewable energy.”  
“VDL Bus & Coach is an experienced E-Mobility transition partner, and the fact that BVB has chosen to partner with VDL to gain practical experience with electric vehicles and that we are now also going to provide support for furthering the sustainability of public transport in Switzerland is something we take great pride in, ” says Alex de Jong, business manager public transport VDL Bus & Coach B.V.
