Hybrid logo

MCI, which brought you the very first hybrid-electric commuter coach, now unveils its next generation. Based on the high-capacity, best-selling D4500, MCI's 45-foot Hybrid uses the latest clean-diesel engine technology from Cummins along with the Allison Ep50 Electric Drive Propulsion System, delivering impressive power, lower noise levels and significantly reduced carbon emissions. At the same time, passengers sit high above traffic in plush forward-facing, high-back reclining seats with LED reading lamps and overhead airflow controls.

It's everything you expect from MCI.
