Mr. Yan Ping, Chairman of GYMCL, commented, "The future of powertrain systems will be a seamless integration of engine and electric technologies that is not only cost-effective, but also energy-saving. Our new products will focus on medium- and heavy-duty applications, and gradually expand into light-duty markets. More importantly, we are addressing the short- and medium-term market opportunities with the use of new design concepts, new development processes, and new verification methods."
Mr. Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, commented, "With the successful roll-out of our National VI engine product portfolio, we are once again introducing products for the future.
