China Yuchai Introduces Four New Energy Powertrain Systems

China Yuchai International Limited ( CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company") a leading automotive manufacturer and distributor of engines for on- and off-road applications in China through its main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("GYMCL"), today announced four new energy powertrain systems in seven new products at its new energy strategy and product press conference in Beijing.

The newly introduced new energy powertrain systems include an ISG power generation powertrain ("YC IE-Power"), an e-CVT power-split hybrid powertrain ("YC e-CVT"), an integrated electric drive axel powertrain ("YC e-Axel"), and a fuel cell system ("YC FCS"). A total of seven new energy powertrain products representing these four new energy powertrain systems, was also introduced at the press conference.

2020 is going to be a pivotal year for the Chinese commercial vehicle market, as not only the nationwide energy-saving and emission reduction strategies will be implemented, but OEMs and powertrain producers will commercialize their diversified technology offerings as well.

In response to the changing market environment, GYMCL showcased its technology innovation and product development capabilities with these new systems and products, which will complement Yuchai's well-established market access, long-standing customer relations and proven National VI engine product portfolio. In recent years, GYMCL has enlarged its R&D programs in new energy and new technologies to broaden its powertrain solutions.

These new products provide GYMCL the strong advantages of power technology integration and the full integration of engine and electrical technologies to address customers' diversified power needs in different market segments.

Mr. Yan Ping, Chairman of GYMCL, commented, "The future of powertrain systems will be a seamless integration of engine and electric technologies that is not only cost-effective, but also energy-saving. Our new products will focus on medium- and heavy-duty applications, and gradually expand into light-duty markets. More importantly, we are addressing the short- and medium-term market opportunities with the use of new design concepts, new development processes, and new verification methods."

Mr. Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, commented, "With the successful roll-out of our National VI engine product portfolio, we are once again introducing products for the future. This opens a new chapter as we implement a two-pronged product strategy. With the new strategy and product roadmap, we are embracing two emerging trends at the same time: transition from traditional engine design and production to full powertrain solutions including new energy powertrains, and transition from the domestic market to international markets."
