China Yuchai International Limited announced today that the new Yutong vehicles running on engines supplied by the company’s main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited (GYMCL), have been put into operation in Fushun, Liaoning Province, in Northeast China. Officials from the Fushun municipal government, representatives from GYMCL and Zhengzhou Yutong Bus Company attended the event.
As a national pilot city for environmentally friendly buses, Fushun has made its first large purchase of buses from Zhengzhou Yutong. Out of the 800 new buses ordered, 600 buses were installed with GYMCL’s gas-electric hybrid engines with the remaining 200 buses running on GYMCL’s LNG engines.
“The introduction of new-energy buses in Fushun shows the determination of the Chinese government to improve the environment through the reduction of harmful emissions. We are receiving increasing demand for our hybrid and natural gas engines to provide solutions for reducing engine emissions and improving fuel efficiency,” said Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai.
“The selection of GYMCL’s engines by Fushun is an endorsement of our design and product quality and we are well positioned to benefit from the expected market expansion of new-energy vehicles,” he added.
