Cuban State Council Vice President Carlos Lage Tuesday praised the high quality of Yutong buses being supplied by China to this Caribbean island.

Lage said that at the end of 2007, some 1,142 buses are expected to arrive in Cuba from China to be used for urban transportation.

Over 500 Yutong buses have landed in Cuba so far this year and more will continue to arrive in the country in the next three years as part of a bilateral accord, Lage said at Havana's San Augustin bus station.

The Yutong group is one of the world's largest automakers, with a 22,000-unit annual production and US$8 billion sales.

In early 2006, Cuba negotiated with China the purchase of 8,000 vehicles, including the Yutong buses, which have been praised as "excellent" by Cuban leader Fidel Castro for their low fuel consumption and high quality.

Other bilateral negotiations in the transport sector include supplying Cuba with 2,500 horse-power locomotives, firefighter trucks and other vehicles.

Yutong, Alcoa to roll out eco-friendly bus in Aug

Shanghai, July 16 ( China's leading bus-maker Zhengzhou Yutong Group Co. and world-famous aluminum producer Alcoa Inc. announced on July 12 that they would jointly launch an environmentally friendly bus model (code-named ZK6126HGE) in August, reported yesterday. The bus model uses a lot of aluminum materials to lose its weight by 46% and to lower its fuel consumption.

A research result released by German IFEU (Institute for Energy and Environmental Research) in 2007 said that a diesel bus could save up to 2,550 liters of diesel as well as lower the CO2 emissions in its running period if the bus weight could be cut by 100kg.

"We target to cut more than 1,000kg off each bus together with Yutong Group," said Robert S. Wetherbee, Vice President of Alcoa's Market Strategy. "Actually, we have reduced 1,400kg from a 12-meter-long city bus, an 11.6% weight loss for the bus in empty running,” he added.

The all aluminum bus can get 46% lighter in weight than a conventional bus. Robert believed the higher fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions brought by the bus weight loss will surely promote China’s energy-saving move and improve the environment.

Zhengzhou Yutong Group Co. is a large-scale Chinese enterprise with bus making as its core business, engineering machinery and real estate as its strategic business, and at the same time giving attention to other investment portfolios.

Alcoa is the world's producer and provider of primary aluminum, fabricated aluminum and alumina facilities, and is active in all major businesses of the industry.

Yutong to produce new-energy buses in H2

April 01, 2009

Shanghai, April 1 ( China's largest bus-maker Zhengzhou Yutong Group Co. is planning to mass-produce new-energy buses in the second half of this year, said today.

In 1999, Zhengzhou Yutong began its research and development of new-energy buses. The bus maker has built seven petrol-electric hybrid bus models, which are under trial operation in Beijing, Guangzhou and Zhengzhou.

The trial version of 12-meter-long hybrid bus models can be save 17%-19% energy compared with the ordinary MT (manual transmission) bus, the test result said. Yutong’s hybrid bus can be 25% more energy-saving than a gas-guzzling AT bus.

The bus maker now is taking active measures to apply for the new-energy bus production permit from the government immediately after China recently issued new energy vehicles stimulus policy.

The company is well prepared to mass-produce new-energy buses in the second half of 2009.

Recently, experts appointed by Dutch Royal Ministry of Transportation (RDW) declared that Yutong’s ZK6129H/ZK6119HA buses passed the WVTA (Whole Vehicle Type Approval) of European Union (EU) after two-day’s audit.

It’s learned that the audit includes controls on whole vehicle manufacturing consistency, parts &components manufacturing consistency, engineering change of products, order review, update of overseas laws and regulations, overseas recall, COC certificate management procedure, the responsibilities of European office and its relations with Yutong Bus, etc.

EU’s Whole Vehicle Type Approval, WVTA for short, also called e-sign approval, is a compulsory certificate in EU based on EC directives or Brussels directives. All whole vehicles and auto parts with WVTA certificate are eligible to be sold in EU member countries. The stringent approval set rather high standards on emission volumes, safety performance, as well as environmental protection, and is one of the three automotive approval systems together with American and Japanese counterpart approval systems.
