The Enviro500 for Berlin will be 13.8 metres long with three doors, two staircases and 80 seats.

The first new buses – of a minimum of 70 – are due to arrive in Berlin in 2020.

Dr Sigrid Evelyn Nikutta said:“Thanks to the flexible contract, we will be able to adjust our purchase volume depending on how the electric bus market develops.”
