China Yuchai International Limited has announced that its main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited (GYMCL), had, at its annual sales and marketing conference held on January 24, 2015, introduced 10 new engines for 2015.
The YC6L-60 diesel engine is China Yuchai’s newest diesel engine compliant with National VI emission standards. This new engine is a high-end model of the 6 liter heavy-duty platform. It has a power range between 177 to 243 kW and is designed for use in buses between 10 to 12 meters and trucks that carry loads of 25 to 40 tons. Improvements in the YC6L-60 include medium cooling exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), innovative DPF and efficient SCR technologies.
Five new National V compliant engines were introduced for various truck and bus markets. The YC4Y22-50 diesel engine has a 2.2 liter engine for the light-duty truck and bus markets. The YC4S-50 diesel engine has a 3.76 liter engine for medium- to high-end trucks and buses. The YC4EG-50 diesel engine contains a 4.73 liter engine for medium-duty buses and light- and medium-duty highway trucks. The YC6MK-50 is a 10.3 liter engine for on-road trucks and buses. The YC4FAN-50 natural gas engine is designed to be used in light-duty vehicles.
Three new engines meeting the Tier 3 emission standards for off-road diesel engines were also unveiled. Two new models, the YC6J-T30 and YC4D-T30, are for the loader, excavator and forklift markets. The YC4A-T30 engine is designed for the agriculture market and has been upgraded. This engine improves the heat transfer efficiency of the cooling system by more than 30%, and uses a high pressure injection mechanical in-line pump and EGR technology.
The new YC4FQ-48 engine compliant with National IV emission standards is for use in light-duty trucks. With a 2.5 liter displacement, it is lighter in weight with an improved cooling system compared with the model YC4FA engine. This new model utilizes high pressure common rail, EGR, diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) technologies.
The total number of engines sold by GYMCL in 2014 was 483,825 units compared with 500,756 units in 2013.
Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, commented, “We continue to introduce new models to raise the performance and quality standards for engines in China. Our new engines will help us further penetrate a number of markets to expand our leading market share. We are committed to increasing our research and development efforts to provide innovative engines, improve our customer relationships and attract new customers. ”
