The MCV Evolution (stylised as eVolution), also known as the MCV C124RLE for newer full-size models, is a model of midibus and full-size single-decker bus bodywork produced by MCV since 2005. The Evolution is by far MCV's most successful design, approaching ten years in production with 537 bodies sold in the United Kingdom and Ireland alone.

In the past, the Evolution has been available on Alexander Dennis Enviro200, Dennis Dart SLF, MAN 12.220, MAN 12.240, MAN 14.220 and MAN 14.240 chassis. It is currently available only as on the MAN A66 and VDL SB180 midibus chassis and Mercedes-Benz OC500LE and Volvo B7RLE full-size chassis.

The Evolution was launched in 2005 on MAN 14.220 chassis. October of that year saw the first Evolution-bodied Dennis Dart SLF, followed exactly a year later by the first Evolution-bodied MAN 12.220. In March 2007, the first Evolution on MAN 12.240 chassis was delivered to Metroline. From May 2007, the Evolution was made available on the successor to the Dart, the Alexander Dennis Enviro200 chassis. July 2010 saw the first MAN A66-chassied Evolution. Since then, Evolutions have been launched on VDL, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo chassis.

Major operators of the Evolution include Stagecoach (such as Stagecoach Yorkshire) and Hulleys of Baslow.
