Guangxi Yuchai's hybrid diesel achieves highest technical standard in China

  • 14-Sep-2010 09:07 EDT

China Yuchai International Ltd. says that the commercial-vehicle hybrid diesel engine (YCHPT) of its main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Co. Ltd. (GYMCL), has achieved the highest technical standards within China. This is one of GYMCL's projects listed in China's National High-tech Development Program, also known as the "863 Program." With this achievement, GYMCL has attained an industry-leading position for its hybrid engines, matching the performance criteria of the world's top hybrid engines. GYMCL's commercial-vehicle hybrid diesel engine is China's first independently developed commercial uniaxial parallel hybrid engine. The innovative aspects of the hybrid engine include mechatronics design and flexible connection, system-on-a-chip self-learning, intelligent shift control manual transmission, clutch shift, and high-efficiency energy recycling technology. Since its commercial introduction in April 2009, YCHPT hybrid diesel engines have reached the 10 million km (6 milion mi) mark, demonstrating their reliability with an average energy savings of approximately 20% compared with standard diesel engines.
