SINGAPORE, Sept. 14, 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"), today announced that the 3.5-ton electric drive axle of Yuchai Xin-Lan New Energy Power Technology Co., Ltd. ("Yuchai Xin-Lan") has been successfully integrated for the first time into an EV light-duty bus from Guangxi Shenlong.
This EV model will be gradually released in the third quarter of 2022 into the Nanning bus market, marking the first successful entry of Yuchai Xin-Lan's new energy electric drive axle products into the full electric light-duty EV bus market. The Yuchai 3.5-ton electric axle power system has a designed rated power of 65kW and peak power of 120kW.
Recently, Inner Mongolia Easy-Move Technology launched China's first domestically made 200-metric ton smart mining truck, the EM200. The EM200 features Yuchai Xin-Lan's 300kW high-power range extender powertrain system, which greatly improves payload management efficiency, lowers carbon emissions and provides intelligent control.
Yuchai Xin-Lan's range extender powertrain systems can achieve electromechanical hybrid control. The Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM), proprietarily designed by Yuchai Xin-Lan, significantly reduces weight and size while producing more power and achieves better reliability. For mining trucks powered by Yuchai Xin-Lan range extender powertrain systems, when climbing with heavy payloads, the electric power system can charge the vehicle battery while also powering the main motor, enabling the vehicle to charge while on the move. This Yuchai Xin-Lan range extender powertrain system can work continuously and greatly improve transportation efficiency.
Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, commented, "We are delighted to see that Xin-Lan's electric axle drive is penetrating the large light-duty bus market and Xin-Lan's range extender system is gaining traction in the large tonnage mining equipment market."
