China Yuchai Unveils China's First HD Tractor CVT Hybrid Powertrain and the Largest Horsepower Engine for Agricultural Machinery Market

SINGAPORE, Nov. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company") a leading manufacturer and distributor of engines for on- and off-road applications in China through its main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("GYMCL"), announced two new smart powertrain systems for heavy-duty agricultural equipment, IE-Power and YCK16, at the recent 2021 China International Agricultural Machinery Exhibition in Shandong, China. 

The CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) hybrid powertrain, IE-Power, showcases Yuchai's proprietary design for heavy-duty tractors in the range of 200-260 horsepower.  Compared with traditional powertrains for tractors, the IE-Power increases performance by 10%-30% with reduced fuel consumption.  In addition, IE-Power's electric motor performs at remarkably low noise, vibration and harshness.  Agricultural machinery OEMs such as Shandong Wuzheng and Liugong Group have launched their heavy-duty CVT tractors powered by Yuchai's IE-Power.

GYMCL also introduced the YCK16 diesel engine for heavy-duty agricultural equipment applications. Jointly designed by Yuchai and AVL, the YCK16 features 580-775 horsepower with a National VI-compliant fuel injection system, and it is suitable for large agricultural equipment including forage harvesters and cotton harvesters.   

Mr. Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, commented, "We continue to roll out new products loaded with compelling technologies to address growing end-market opportunities and environmental demands.  As the Chinese agricultural market is undergoing unprecedented migration to advanced equipment for better productivity, we are poised to benefit from such trend and growing sales."
