As battery electric buses experience rapid global growth, their operation and driving range in frigid environments face severe challenges. Yutong battery electric buses have undergone a series of extreme cold challenges around the world to verify their operation and driving range performance in frigid and low temperature environments.
Confronting the piercing cold of Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, Yutong battery electric bus E18PRO bravely embraced a rigorous extreme cold challenge. The driving range of 374 km was achieved after 16 hours of operation at -25°C.
E18PRO adopts Yutong's most advanced battery, motor and electric control technologies. The battery liquid heating system can provide a better working temperature for lithium iron phosphate batteries. Customized control strategies are developed for frigid operation scenarios based on Yutong's operation experience of 180,000 new energy commercial vehicles worldwide. The heating mode of heat pump A/C effectively improves the interior heating efficiency, so as to ensure that E18PRO can maintain good driving range performance even under frigid conditions.

Compared with the traditional electric heating mode, the low-temperature heat pump A/C system can save energy by more than 30% in vehicle heating.
Vehicle intelligent brake safety technology + 360° panoramic view system ensures safe control in ice and snow weather.
Based on the double-plug fast charging technology, the vehicle can be fully charged in just 1+ hour.
The professional electrophoresis process with 15 working procedures is adopted to ensure that no structural corrosion will occur during the full life cycle of the vehicle in frigid ice and snow environment.
With a strong emphasis on environmental protection and strict measures, Norway has become a veritable Kingdom of Electric Vehicles in the world. One-third of its territory is located within the Arctic Circle, featuring complex environment and harsh climate.
In the bitterly cold Astana, capital of Kazakhstan, Yutong E18PRO battery electric bus met a severe challenge.
With the cumulative global sales of battery electric buses reaching a new high by the end of 2023, the reliability and practicality of this means of transportation have become the focus of attention in many cities.
