SINGAPORE, Dec. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer and distributor of engines for on- and off-road applications in China through its main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("GYMCL"), announced today that it has delivered a total of 303 hybrid engines to Inner-Mongolia Tian'an Public Transportation Group and Lanzhou Mass Transit Company. All of these engines are compliant with National V emission standards.
The Lanzhou Mass Transit Company recently put 288 new environmentally-friendly buses into service, 280 of which are 12-meter coach buses powered by GYMCL's YC6J210N hybrid engines. This turbocharged engine displaces 7.8 liters for medium-size commercial vehicles. The remaining 8 buses run on GYMCL's YC6MKN heavy-duty natural gas engines with a 10.3 liter displacement, which are designed for larger coach buses. Lanzhou, the capital of Gansu Province and a major industrial city in Western China, has been plagued by increasing environmental pollution in recent years. Additionally, GYMCL delivered 15 natural gas-electric hybrid engines to the Inner-Mongolia Tian'an Public Transportation Group in Erdos City and Xilinhot City.
Mr. Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, commented, "We continue to expand our geographic footprint in China and to extend our technological leadership in the new energy bus market. In September 2016, we also announced China's first gas-electric hybrid powertrain system for China's truck market. As the dominant supplier of hybrid engines in the Chinese bus market, we strive to introduce best-in-class natural gas-electric engines and diesel-electric hybrid engines to improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions in many more urban markets across China."
