All these 66 buses, which are operating on the No. 1 designated route, feature Allison T375R transmission. Its torque converter technology multiplies engine torque while launching the vehicle smoothly, an advantage for public buses which are characterized by frequent starts and stops. Allison automatic transmissions also provide easy maneuverability, allowing the driver to keep both hands on the steering wheel and concentrate on road conditions.
“Along with increasingly more Chinese buses used in global public transportation, customers are demanding higher vehicle efficiency and performance. Allison Transmission’s excellent record over the years working with Chinese OEMs has produced relationships based on cooperation. Together we are promoting and expanding Chinese bus exports with support through Allison’s global network,” said Steven Chew, Managing Director for Allison Transmission in China.
The LCK6180GC articulated buses are fitted with natural gas engines, complementing the fully automatic transmissions for a great performance. Allison’s electronic control technology helps engines obtain considerable fuel economy even at low speeds. At the same time, Allison’s Continuous Power Technology™ helps improve natural gas vehicle performance – avoiding acceleration delays and power interruptions.
