EvoBus GmbH is a bus manufacturer, integrated into the Daimler AG Group. Setra is also a member of the EvoBus GmbH. It was renamed Daimler Buses, but does not include the bus operations of Thomas Built Buses or Fuso, also owned by Daimler AG.


In 1995, Mercedes-Benz and Setra amalgamated under the umbrella of EvoBus. Mercedes-Benz brought in more than 100 years of experience in the bus and coach industry, starting with the invention of the ombibus by Carl Benz in 1895 in Mannheim.

EvoBus is headquartered in Stuttgart in Germany, with its largest bus factory in Mannheim in Germany. Licensed buses are also manufactured in Turkey. The city buses, for instance the Citaro, are manufactured in Mannheim, as are the chassis (meaning the frame plus the "running gear" like engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension). A body (sometimes referred to as "coachwork"), is built on the chassis to complete the coaches in Ulm/Neu-Ulm, where the final assembly takes place. Other factories of EvoBus are in igny-en-Barrois in France and in Sámano (Castro Urdiales) in Spain.

Its product portfolio include:

  • Bus-specific service ranging from insurance and consulting to concepts for financing and the procurement of original parts and accessories.
  • Sales network for new and used vehicles in Europe,
  • Service network

In 2004, EvoBus had a workforce of 10,604 employees.


In April 1951, Setra introduced a coach with self-supporting structure.

By 1955 the company demonstrated a coach with the first independent air suspension at the German Motor Show in Frankfurt.

Since the 1990s, EvoBus has been experimenting with hydrogen fuel cells to use hydrogen as a primary source of power for the locomotion of buses.
