Called MCV, which stands for “Manufacturing Commercial Verhicles,” it is based in Cairo, Egypt, but is the new electric bus manufacturer that has landed on the German market, making its base in the city of Bestwig. Breaking the news is Urban Transport, which points out that the first vehicles by MCV Deutschland GmbH will be unveiled next spring. In MCV’s sights are alternative battery and hydrogen traction systems.
At the top of the new entity is Pierre Dellori, who came from Iveco-Bus, Jochen Grau, who also moved from Iveco-Bus to MCV, and Uwe Schneider, who with his STS Schneider Technik und Service GmbH will be in charge of the after-sales area of MCV’s buses. STS is an experienced partner in the field of bus service. It has worked for Iveco-Bus so far and will continue to do so in addition to its activities for MCV.
