Yuchai Engines Power Largest Chinese Bus Export Order to Mexico

SINGAPORE, March 11, 2022 /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 GYMCL’s YC6GN natural gas engines became the exclusive engine to power 800 Ankai buses that were recently shipped to Mexico. 

These new Yuchai-powered Ankai buses will operate in Monterrey, Mexico, which is the third largest city in Mexico.  With the continuous growth of its urban population, Monterrey is replacing its traditional energy city buses to provide a more environmentally friendly travel solution. Monterrey is also an important industrial and business hub with a number of large Mexican and international companies operating there.  

Prior to this, YC6GN gas engines were already in city bus operations in Mexico, including the Chihuahua Prefecture, and the performance of the engines has been well received by the local transportation department and bus operators.

Designed for on-road applications, the YC6GN is a 7.8-liter heavy-duty engine powered by 6 cylinders and delivers up to 191 horsepower to propel buses up to 12 meters in length.  YC6GN also provides "green energy" solutions in compliance with the Euro V and Chinese National-V emission standards.

Mr. Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, commented, "The Yuchai brand continues to penetrate the global commercial vehicle markets with its high-performance bus engines through its large portfolio of diesel, gas and hybrid powertrains."
