From May 10 to 14, the Exposition on China Brand 2023 was held at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center. Yuchai displayed China's first commercial vehicle hydrogen-fueled engine and the world's first power-split hybrid powertrain at the Exposition, showing the world the strength of China's power brand to forge ahead. Cai Lixin, Member of the Standing Committee of the Party Committee and Executive Vice Chairman of the People's Government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, viewed Yuchai's exhibits in the exhibition area.
As the "pioneer" of China's power system, what core products has Yuchai displayed to you? Let's figure it out.
Yuchai Hydrogen-fueled Engine Scales New Highs, Leading the Green Energy Transition
Exposition on China Brand is the only national brand expo. This year, a new "Innovation 100+" exhibition area was added to the offline exhibition, which features a centralized display of over 100 innovative products recommended by local governments and China's centrally administered SOEs that lead in their respective industries. YCK05H hydrogen-fueled engine, by virtue of its low-carbon and intelligent technical advantages, scales new highs and is the only brand development achievement of "Intelligent Manufacturing in China" of the industry in the exhibition area.
Currently, application of hydrogen energy has become an important way to peak carbon dioxide emissions and gradually achieve carbon neutrality for its inherent advantage of zero carbon emission. To cope with the bottlenecks in technologies and costs, hydrogen-fueled engines are developed, providing new zero-carbon solutions for commercial vehicles, construction machinery and other applications. Yuchai YCK05H hydrogen-fueled engine is China's first hydrogen-fueled engine for city buses, utilities, sanitation, and logistics distribution fields, marking the beginning of the research and development of hydrogen-fueled engines for commercial vehicles in China.
Several advanced technologies such as high-pressure multi-point intake injection, high-efficiency low-inertia turbocharged, and high-efficiency lean combustion are adopted for Yuchai YCK05H hydrogen-fueled engine, overcoming technical problems such as backfire and knocking of hydrogen-fueled engines. The use of low-cost grey hydrogen as fuel greatly reduces the utilization cost of hydrogen energy. The engine has a maximum power of 125 kW and thermal efficiency leading in China.
This year, Yuchai's independent intelligent controller technology will also be adopted for hydrogen-fueled engines. The technical research will be applied to the complete vehicle from the laboratory, and the adaptive development of complex application scenarios will be carried out to ensure mass production of hydrogen-fueled engines as soon as possible.
Based on the Customer-oriented Principle, Yuchai Xin-Lan Grows Faster, Providing Clean-energy Engine System Solution
In recent years, focusing on pain points such as anxiety about the range in the use of clean-energy engines, Yuchai Xin-Lan has developed an integrated YC IE-Power system, e-CVT, YC e-Axle, and YC FCS that focus on specific application scenarios of users for personalized customization, and is committed to providing customers with a complete clean-energy engine system solution.
Yuchai Xin-Lan's YC e-CVT exhibited in the Guangxi Exhibition Area is the world's first power-split plug-in hybrid engine system, and also a star product reflecting Yuchai's transformation to the clean-energy engine system, which can achieve a fuel saving rate of more than 60% under composite road conditions.
The product can realize e-power, hybrid drive, e-charge and other functions based on the operating conditions, and has many comparative advantages such as high comfort and no shifting pause. At present, it has been applied to buses, cement mixers, cranes, urban sanitation vehicles, tractors, refrigerator trucks, and other market segments. Supporting vehicle manufacturers include Dongfeng Vasol, Dongfeng Liuzhou Motor, and King Long.
Enhance "Created in China" and Show the Strength of China's "Strong Power" to Forge Ahead
According to the statistics of OECD, 3% of famous brands have a global market share of 40%. Brand is an important symbol of high-quality economic development and a comprehensive representation of the competitiveness of enterprises and even countries.
Founded in 1951, Yuchai has always focused on its main business, kept pace with the development of times, and caught up with reform and opening up. It specializes in creating professional engine products for customers, with over 10 million engines produced and sold cumulatively, and provides product and service support for customers from more than 180 countries and regions around the world. Yuchai's brand influence is increasing, and its friendship circle is continuously expanding.
In the future, Yuchai will continue to adhere to the customer-oriented principle and launch efficient and reliable products as well as worry-free and fast services, be a pioneer in scientific and technological innovation, spread brand stories, give full play to its brand advantages and core competitiveness, promote the transformation from "Made in China" to "Created in China", from "China Speed" to "China Quality", and from "China's Products" to "China's Brands", and contribute to boosting China's strength in manufacturing and science and technology.
