Tried and Tested
Yutong vehicles are designed and manufactured to stand the test of time. Because Yutong knows that life outside the factory will throw everything at them, Yutong ensures their buses are tested at every stage of the build – to guarantee optimal quality and exceptional longevity. Everything is done to guarantee the final vehicle is of the highest standard and capable of performing in all conditions.
To be the best, you must prepare for the worst, and Yutong was the first in China’s bus industry to conduct crash tests. Each vehicle is designed for minimal deformation after a crash test, ensuring driver and passenger safety.
Performed on the whole vehicle, such potentially destructive tests greatly improve the reliability of Yutong vehicles and further reduce maintenance costs.
Yutong literally goes above and beyond to conduct its rollover tests – with the test tilt angle reaching 42° (National standard is 35°). This ensures vehicles meet all European standards.
You need absolute trust in your foundations, which is why Yutong runs a 6-freedom, all-condition simulation of wheels to verify the reliability of the chassis framework, axles, leaf springs, air bags, shock absorbers, anti-roll bars and more.
Yutong has the highest standards for even the smallest of parts, which is why it tests them for durability, fatigue and shock resistance performance on the 6-freedom multi-axis vibration bench.
The Yutong state-of-the-art electrocoating technique greatly improves the anti-corrosion performance and longevity of each bus. Designed and commissioned by the world-renowned Dürr company of Germany, it’s advanced electrocoating line leads the way in its scale and production capacity.
The choice for the future
Investment in technology has been the cornerstone of Yutong’s recent success – in particular its focus on new energy solutions. In 1999, the company developed the first fully electric bus, ushering in a new era of low energy and low emission solutions for 21st century cities. As a result, Yutong new energy buses have become the preferred choice for many European nations including UK, France, Russia, Bulgaria and Denmark as well as Africa, South America, Australia, New Zealand and other markets. In late 2018 over 100 electric buses were delivered to Chile in a single order.
In 2018, the Yutong Group’s turnover reached 48.5 billion yuan. The company continues to rank number 1 in China in both scale and sales performance – as it continues to “embrace the future” with further success in Latin America, Uzbekistan and Finland markets in 2019, with others set to follow.
