China Yuchai International Limited announced that new-energy buses installed with LNG engines supplied by the company's subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited (GYMCL), have been launched in Fushun City, China.
As a national pilot city for cleaner and environmentally friendly buses, Fushun has made its first large purchase of new-energy buses from Zhengzhou Yutong Bus Company. 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.
Officials from the Fushun municipal government, representatives from GYMCL and Zhengzhou Yutong Bus Company attended the new-energy bus launch event.
China Yuchai President, Weng Ming Hoh, commented: "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. The selection of GYMCL's engines by Fushun is an endorsement of our superior design and product quality and we are well positioned to benefit from the expected market expansion of new-energy vehicles."
