Brent Maitland, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, MCI said:

“MCI is proud to deliver our first battery-electric J4500 CHARGE coaches to the Bay Area employee shuttle market. This growing market continues to advance employee transportation, making commuter shuttle service even more environmentally friendly, inviting, and comfortable. The employee shuttle market is an excellent application for MCI's EVs as their range covers the length of the shuttle service routes and does not require a large amount of baggage bay space.

“MCI has rigorously tested J4500 CHARGE coach for this business segment throughout location in the US and Canada to ensure its high performance for our customers.”

The J4500 CHARGE was introduced in 2021. The model leverages electric vehicle (EV) technology from New Flyer and delivers a range of over 230 miles on a single charge, which takes up to 4 hours.
