Chronology

The MCV Evolution (stylised as eVolution) is a single-decker bus bodywork built by Manufacturing Commercial Vehicles. It was unveiled in late 2004. It is the successor of the MCV Stirling.

It is offered on the MAN 12.220 (A76), 12.240 (A76), 14.220 (A66) and 14.240 (A66) however there were plans to body on an even shorter MAN chassis, the 10.220, which can be built as short as 8.5m long. From late 2005 it was offered on the Dennis Dart SLF since Alexander Dennis wanted to offer their chassis with other bodies. Although Alexander Dennis has replaced the Dart with the new Enviro200 Dart it is still offered with the MCV bodywork. In October 2009, MCV and Arriva Bus and Coach unveiled the VDL SB180/MCV Evolution in Coach and Bus Live 2009.

The MCV Evolution was also offered on larger single-decker buses, such as the VDL SB200, Volvo B7RLE, MAN A22 and Mercedes-Benz OC500LE.
