Research & development
Every year, four percent of the company’s annual turnover is placed into the research of state-of-the-art technologies for their buses. Yutong employ a professional R&D team of over 1,000 people who guide the design of their bus products with science and technology. In China’s bus industry Yutong was the first in developing: post-doctoral workstation, state of the art technical and experimental centre, national research centre on electronic control & safety engineering technology of electric buses.
By applying CFD technology, Yutong simulated and calculated the flow field of the air duct of the bus air conditioner. The modification of six big items has made the temperature throughout the inside of the bus evenly distributed, thus providing a more comfortable environment for passengers.
By using the same test rig for materials of the Shenzhou V spacecraft, Yutong has reduced the noise level inside and outside of the bus.
Thermal management system of engine
The engine thermal management system was self-developed by Yutong and can reduce your fuel consumption by 5-10%. It can also reduce the engine friction and cut exhaust emissions.
The Rectrl technology self-developed by Yutong can improve the bus efficiency and reduce fuel consumption by 30%.
Yutong has developed a number of hybrid and electric buses, including China’s first electric sightseeing bus and 18-meter hybrid city bus.
