More Recognition from the European Market! Yutong E12 Won UK Authoritative Environmental Certification

2023-06-14 -

Recently, Yutong E12 won the joint certification by Zemo Partnership, an environmental protection agency of the UK, and UTAC, an EV testing agency, for the consistency of Yutong e-bus environmental performance with European standards in energy use and carbon emissions among others. The contribution of Yutong NEV (new energy vehicle) to green transport in the UK has been recognized by the public and highly acclaimed by mainstream media.

Zemo Partnership is an environmental organization in the UK to accelerate transport to zero emission, committed for years to the introduction of zero-emission, low-emission and ultra-low-emission buses and coaches to the UK. And UTAC, as a member of the UITP (International Association of Public Transport), has remained committed to promoting convenient, accessible and sustainable public transport worldwide.

The joint certification of the two authorities in the UK, one of the first major economies to legislate for net zero emission, is a testimony that the Chinese NEV has evolved from a participant to a leader in the global governance. The key components (battery, motor and electric controller) of Yutong NEV meet or even exceed the current European standard across the board, playing an important role in achieving net zero emissions in the UK.

The high global market penetration of Yutong NEV reflects the competitiveness and recognition of “Made in China” worldwide. In terms of NEV, Yutong has not only established the core advantages of products, but also integrated into the global industrial chain and value chain in all fronts, achieving a development landscape of independent controllability and global superiority, as it continues to pursue overseas expansion with record high export.

As Ralph Roberts, CEO of McGill's Buses in the UK, said, "Thanks to the genuine technological depth of Yutong products, Yutong BEVs are growing worldwide every year. Such a success is not accidental, because it is based on comprehensive brand strength and performance."

After its market entry in the UK in 2013, Yutong has introduced a wide range of products for such segments as tourist coach, inter-city bus and city bus. In the tourist coach market, it ranks among the top three in the sales in the UK, winning the trust and recognition of more than 200 local tourist coach operators. Since the debut of Yutong battery electric bus in the UK, 250 units of its customized e-buses have been serving the public transport to provide a "China solution" for local energy transition.

Across the European market, Yutong NEVs have shown superior product strength and steady growth of market share. In 2022, it topped the sales of battery electric buses in Europe. For the Chinese NEV builder, the success in Europe, the birthplace of modern bus industry, does not only yield great market value, but also brings tremendous brand value and the confidence to go global.

As carbon neutrality becomes a shared vision of the international community, the green transition of public transport is pursued by an increasing number of countries and regions. Up to now, Yutong has sold more than 170,000 units of new energy buses worldwide. From large-scale adoption demo to boosting the rapid industrial development, the Chinese homegrown automotive brands have been increasing global influence steadily, and Yutong NEV is becoming a better new choice across the world.
