July 21, 2023, President of Home and Abroad News Press Mrs. Wei Yan led the Ambassadors Club members, including Ambassador of Slovakia to China H.E. Mr. Peter Lizák, Ambassador of Moldova to China H.E. Mr. Dumitru Braghis, Ambassador of South Africa to China H.E. Mr. Siyabonga C. Cwele, Ambassador of Zimbabwe to China H.E. Mr. Martin Chedondo, Ambassador of Botswana to China H.E. Mr. Batlang Comma Serema, Ambassador of Somalia to China H.E. Mr. Awale Ali Kullane, Ambassador of Mauritius to China H.E. Mr. Alain Wong Yen Cheong, Ambassador of Namibia to China H.E. Mr. Elia G. Kaiyamo, Ambassador of Czech Republic to China H.E. Mr. Vladimir Tomsik, and Mr. Li Xikui, Vice Chairman of the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries and Chairman of the China Friendship Foundation for and Peace and Development, visited Henan Province. On July 24th, the ambassador delegation visited Yutong Bus Co., Ltd. to study the hub economy built by Zhengzhou and its strong momentum in high-tech development, and to experience the non-stop development of China’s high-quality cutting-edge technology.
The theme of the visit was "10th Anniversary of the Belt and Road Initiative" - the blueprint has become a reality with a promising future. When visiting Yutong Group, the ambassadors had a full-scene, multi-angle and zero-distance experience of Yutong's innovative and advanced high-tech advantages in the new energy commercial vehicles. At the high ring test tracks, the ambassadors saw the high-ring test and water-wading test of Yutong's buses, heavy trucks and light trucks. Yutong's test track is used for dynamic inspection of the whole vehicle, and is currently an advanced professional test site in the commercial bus industry. In order to ensure the quality of the vehicles, all Yutong vehicles have to pass the comprehensive performance inspection of the test track before leaving the factory, and this safety concept of "Don’t consider the market as a test ground" has won the ambassadors' tremendous praise.
Then, the ambassadors took a ride on Xiaoyu minibuses to the test center. They first experienced Yutong's hydrogen fuel cell technology. As one of the first enterprises engaged in the research and application of fuel cell commercial vehicles in China, Yutong has advanced technological advantages, quality advantages and brand advantages in the field of hydrogen-fueled commercial vehicles, and its vehicle sales volume and market share are steadily ranked at the forefront of the industry. According to the company tour guide, the hydrogen fuel vehicle will only discharge water during operation, and the water quality inspection report issued by professional organizations shows that the tail water discharged by Yutong's hydrogen fuel vehicles can reach the national drinking water standard.
As a world-renowned new energy commercial vehicle enterprise, Yutong Group adheres to the development strategy of "electrification, intelligent network connectivity, high-end desires and internationalization". It has cumulatively produced more than 170,000 new energy vehicles globally, and has become a global best-selling new energy brand.
Through this visit, the ambassadors saw the opportunities and challenges with the "carbon peaking and carbon neutrality" concerns. Yutong Group will always adhere to the innovation drive, vigorously develop the new energy commercial vehicle industry, and contribute China's strength in promoting the global low-carbon cause and realizing green and sustainable development.
