Red Dot Design Award 2022: New Gen Citea

This year we were nominated for, and won, two Red Dot Design Awards, including our work on the VDL Bus & Coach New Gen Citea.

A scalable, sustainable solution for cities transitioning to net-zero, this electric city bus is designed to encourage participation in public transportation today and anticipate developments in payment systems and autonomous driving tomorrow. Innovations like a single piece of curved composite framing not only cut weight but create a more open, inviting interior, while the electric drivetrain allows for a flat floor that is easy for passengers to navigate. The driver’s cabin also sets new standards for ergonomics, steering adjustments, and dashboard space.

The fact that VDL emerged as the victor from such a strong group of participants is a testament to the exceptional quality of the product.”
