English   Record Run Buses 2012
31.10.2012 von admin

The fuel savings translate into a surprising economic equation: assuming an annual mileage of 60,000 km and current fuel prices of about 1.25 euros per litre (excluding VAT), the new Euro VI-certified Citaro saves about 2700 euros in costs for diesel fuel annually. The additional expense for the new Euro VI-certified Citaro is worthwhile not only because the vehicle pays for itself after about four years but also due to the predicted higher value retention.

The conclusion to be drawn from the Record Run Buses 2012: the move to Euro VI not only significantly lowers the fuel consumption and emissions of the Mercedes-Benz Citaro; Euro VI also pays off economically.

Setra ComfortClass 515 HD: savings of 8.2 per cent diesel fuel

The results for the new Setra ComfortClass 500 are similar. Here a Euro VI-certified S 515 HD of the ComfortClass 500 with the new Mercedes-Benz OM 470 engine and a rated power output of 315 kW (428 hp) rolled up to the starting line. The in-house opponent was the directly comparable S 415 GT-HD ComfortClass 400 predecessor model with the previous OM 457 LA engine and an identical power output of 315 kW (428 hp). This duel also featured identical gear and final drive ratios as well as tyres. Both buses were fully loaded to the maximum permissible gross vehicle weight of 18 tonnes.

Travelling a distance of 7000 km with an average fuel consumption of 21.0 litres/100 km the new ComfortClass S 515 HD also turned in an outstanding economic performance. It outperformed the fuel-efficient comparison model by 1.9 l/100 km or 8.2 per cent.

In light of the prediction of five to six per cent in fuel savings it must be noted for the Setra touring coach as well: promise kept and in the Record Run Buses 2012 even surpassed.

Crunching the numbers also pays off in the case of the Setra ComfortClass 500: given the current fuel price of around 1.50 euros a litre and an annual mileage of 100,000 km it saves the operator about 2850 euros in fuel costs, at 180,000 km the savings amount to more than 5000 euros a year. The respective reductions in CO2 emissions are around 5000 kg and 9000 kg a year. It goes to show: Euro VI is a worthwhile investment not only with regard to protecting the environment and conserving resources; Euro VI also makes economic sense.
