The Unicat MD56c Is A $1.6 Million Motorhome

In the Unicat MD56c, it would be easy to disappear off the grid and for a long while.


  • The MD56c is powered by a 532-horsepower diesel engine.

  • Its range is of 3,300 km, or 2,000 miles.

  • This is the vehicle we all need in a post-apocalyptical world.


A glance at the Unicat MD56c, it specs and attractive living quarters, has us thinking that it could be nice to actually get away from the pandemic mess the world is currently in. All we need are $1.6 million and a few hours to fill all the enormous and various reservoirs.

Consider that this huge six-wheel-drive, 12-speed, 19,800 kg (43,650 lbs) can drive from the heart of Toronto all the way out to Thunder Bay, and back without ever stopping. This gives you an idea of how far you can go on a tank-full if you decide to just go. Said tank can hold 264 gallons, or 1,000 litres, of diesel fuel. Do the math – filling your SUV’s 15-gallon (60-litre) tank takes about 3 minutes. Multiply by 15 or 16, and you’re not quite there yet.

That’s because this part motorhome, part command-center can also hold up to 600 litres (158.5 gallons) of freshwater. All that remains as far as necessities is power. For that, the MD56c’s roof is covered with 1,850-W solar panels that feed a 1,200-Ah/24.6-kWh lithium battery bank. There’s also an inverter, a full monitoring system and a Honda portable generator if need be.
