The YESS technology released by Yutong this time is its proprietary safety technology for traction battery. It brings three major improvements in safety level, all-climate capability and road adaptability in an all-round way from the whole vehicle to the battery and from the system to the components. As part of the technology, the nitrogen protection eliminates the firing condition in the battery pack by putting the battery in an oxygen-free environment in real time, representing the highest EV safety technology in the global bus industry at present. And now, it has been successfully applied in the whole lineup of Yutong BEVs.
T13E, a high-end battery electric coach developed for the Chilean market, is fitted with dual motor driving system, with a maximum gradeability of 20% and a strong power; The intelligent AEBS configuration can reduce the risk of collision accidents through collision warning, auxiliary braking and emergency braking that are activated in sequence according to the degree of danger.
