/PRNewswire/ -- China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company"), announced today that the Company's main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("GYMCL"), has, at a product conference held in Nanning City, capital of
, unveiled 8 new engine models to further increase its leadership in the engine market in 2014.
To better meet the needs of the truck and bus markets in
, several new engine models were introduced, all meeting the National IV emission standards:
- The new YC4E-48 is a light-truck diesel engine for urban logistical uses, special purpose vehicles and other vehicles focused on short- to mid-range transportation. This model uses a two-valve cylinder head combined with a Bosch common rail system paired with EGR, DOC and POC technologies. Its power range covers 103-118 KW and its advantage is enhancing operating cost savings.
- The YC4D20 2 litre diesel engine was jointly developed by GYMCL and AVL Powertrain Engineering. It produces 60 KW/L of power for SUVs/MPVs/N2 light-duty trucks and buses that are shorter than 6 meters. This engine uses 4 valves per cylinder, double overhead camshafts, high-pressure common rail injection technology, an electric EGR valve and variable swirl intake system.
- A redesigned 400-horsepower YC6MK engine for on-road trucks. This model provides enhanced low-speed torque improving stability when using high-speed gears. In addition to a reduction in fuel consumption, the engine's noise level has also been reduced by more than 3 decibels providing superior comfort. More than 70% of the core components of the YC6MK engine are industry-leading global products assembled under best practices in the industry.
- The model YC4S-48 which was upgraded from the YC4S engine for the high-end, light-truck market. This model targets mid- and high-end, on-road vehicles with a load capacity between 5-8 metric tons. It generates 88-110 KW power using a common rail system paired with EGR, DOC and POC technologies.
GYMCL also introduced its second-generation hybrid engine, model YCHPT II, to address the growing customer demand for advanced hybrid engines. The engine adopts plug-in systems to charge the vehicles' batteries, and it features an upgraded gearbox with an interchangeable 5-speed automatic and manual system. This hybrid engine meets the national energy vehicle policy conditions set out in the Chinese government's 12
Five-Year plan, qualifying it for energy subsidies.
For the construction equipment market, two new engines were developed and launched to meet the EPA Tier 3 emission standards. The new model, YC6G220L-T31 series, replaces the 5 metric ton loaders' current 10-litre standard displacement engine with a 7.8 litres engine. This engine features a turbocharged intercooling system and an electronically controlled fuel injection system to enable quick adjustments to the engine's power and torque. Additionally, the new diesel engine model YC4FA45-T30 series targets hydraulic excavators and it features a mechanical rotary pump, with a faster response and low fuel consumption. This model meets the EU S3A or EPA Intermittent Tier 4 emission standards, and it has been awarded the e-mark certificate allowing for marketing into the European Union.
