Though electric coaches are slowly becoming more commonplace, MCI understands that electric coaches are often a significant investment for businesses. In order to make the investment worthwhile, MCI plans to work with potential customers to tailor the new electric vehicles to their needs. Design goals include achieving a minimum range of 200 miles per charge and ensuring that the electric buses “feel” the same as diesel buses to a driver.
Since electric vehicles aren’t yet widely used, it can be difficult to reach charging stations for electric buses, let alone find time to let them charge. Because of these limitations, these electric buses are often used for commuter shuttles within a city rather than long-distance travel.
We are proud to use MCI motorcoaches in the National Charter Bus network. Want to learn more about the buses that could be included in your fleet? Check out our other pages on bus manufacturers for more deep-dives, or look through our bus rental options for a general overview of each model.
