Many heavy duty vehicle manufacturers are taking advantage of the promising scenario for NGV adoption in the country. As an example, Shacman has sold 6.603 LNG trucks until July this year with 6.619 truck orders. The company expects to deliver 16.000 natural gas HDVs in 2014 and reports that sales of dumpers, port trucks and cement mixer trucks are also increasing.
Moreover, CAMC 6×4 LNG heavy trucks started operations in the city of Yangquan, Shanxi Province, in early July, according to an article published by chinatrucks.com. CAMC heavy duty vehicles had already been sold to other cities such as Taiyuan, Jincheng and Linfen.
In order to meet central government’s request for energy saving and emission reduction, Dayun Auto has recently launched the N6 LNG truck, which is currently undergoing tests.
