("Ankai") and propelled by Yuchai engines, were delivered to Saudi Arabia, creating the largest single export order for Chinese buses so far in 2019.
Saudi Arabia's largest passenger group, Hafil Transportation Company ("Hafil"), took delivery of the 12-meter buses, all equipped with Yuchai YC6L engines.
Hafil has approximately 12,000 buses, including nearly 8,000 buses powered by Yuchai engines.

In addition, Hafil's other buses are for school transportation, contract transportation, and conventional short- and long-distance coach services.
Yuchai has established 186 overseas service stations to ensure effective and timely after-sales service. Additionally, there are two regional support centers which include service training and spare parts depots. As of March 2019, Yuchai engine overseas installation exceeded 430,000 units.
