Mitsubishi FUSO MP618N

In 1993 Mitsubishi supplied a FUSO MP618N single-decker (Chassis Number: MP618N-10010) to various Hong Kong bus operators for evaluation purpose. The bus was registered as FL 5622 on 12 February 1993, with an authorized capacity of 45 seats and 28 standees.

During 1993-94, the bus was delivered to 3 public bus operations for trial run. They are Kowloon Motor Bus ("KMB"), Citybus and Kowloon-Canton Railway ("KCRC") Bus Division. In 1995, the bus was finally sold to a private bus company.

Photographs for the bus are available below. Please click on them for the enlarged version.
