Yutong’s 60,000th bus in 2014 rolls off the line
It is worth mentioning that Yutong’s 60,000th bus in 2014 is right the revolutionary new energy product launched this year - pure electric bus E7. Meanwhile, the statistics showed that the total sales volume of Yutong’s new energy buses has reached over 10,000 units, which means that Yutong is not only the first bus builder in the world whose annual production and sales volumes exceeded 60,000 units, but also the first one whose sales volume of new energy buses reached over 10,000 units.
The staff representatives sign their names on the vehicle.
60,000 buses a year, not unexpected
Watched by the staff representatives, the 60,000th bus of this year rolled of the line in the workshop of Yutong New Energy Bus Plant at 9:00 am on December 26. The representatives went toward the vehicle, signed their names on the vehicle and took photos with vehicle to mark the occasion.
Reviewing the past, we can find some amazing coincidences. The same day four years ago, December 26, Yutong’s 40,000th in 2010 rolled off the line and Yutong became the first bus builder in China whose production and sales volumes exceeded 40,000 units. Two years later, Yutong’s annual sales volume reached over 50,000 units in 2012. Just after two years, Yutong once again set a new record in terms of the annual sales volume in the world’s bus industry.
Why is Yutong so successful?
Tang Yuxiang, president of Yutong Group, once said that Yutong’s rapid development relies on the corporate philosophy of “customer-orientation, staff- orientation”, which provides sustainable growth momentum to the company.
From the first sleeper bus launched in 1992 to the revolutionary pure electric product E7 launched in 2014, from the annual sales volume of less than 700 units to over 60,000 units, Yutong always adheres to the corporate philosophy of “customer-orientation, staff- orientation” and is dedicated to creating maximum value for the customers, the industry and the community through innovative and quality products, good service, application of new technologies and proactive development mode.
In addition, Yutong has gradually formed the corporate motto of “Morality, Cooperation and Innovation”. Through the internal corporate culture construction and extensive social welfare activities, Yutong is continuously enhancing the cohesive force and responsibility sense of the staff, and trying to improve the motivation, initiative and creativity of employees to the maximum. Choosing the ordinary staff to be the representatives at this historic moment showcased Yutong’s recognition on the value created by the staff.

It is learned that Yutong has totally donated more than 126 million yuan of money and goods to the society up to now and offered aids to over 54,000 people, including disaster-hit areas, Hope Schools, seriously ill people, left-behind elderlies, handicapped people, needy students and so on.
Sales volume of over 10,000 new energy buses scale new height
The leader’s performance often reflects the development of the industry. Yutong’s 60,000th bus of this year is coincidently the pure electric bus E7, which also showcases the new development trend of China’s bus industry.
In recent years, under the advocation of the Chinese government, the new energy vehicles have become an emerging strategic industry in China and the new energy buses usher in an unprecedented development opportunity. From the first pure electric bus launched in 1999 to now, Yutong not only undertook the key project in the National 863 Program, but also built the largest base of energy-saving and new energy buses in Asia with an investment of 3.86 billion yuan. In November 2013, Yutong launched the ReCtrl – the important technology of new energy buses independently developed by Yutong. In May 2014, Yutong’s new electric product E7 made it debut at China Beijing International Bus & Truck Expo and caused a sensation in the industry. In November 2014, the National Research Center on Electronic Control & Safety Engineering Technology of Electric Buses was designated to be located in Yutong, marking Yutong’s powerful strength in the development of new energy vehicles. In the same month, Yutong launched the first integrated solution program of electric buses in China. The statistics showed that along with the 60,000th Yutong bus rolled off the line, Yutong’s total sales volume of new energy buses has reached over 10,000 units. Yutong has become the first bus builder in China’s whose sales volume of energy buses exceeded 10,000 units.
The 60,000th bus of the year - Yutong electric bus E7
Right on the day when the historic vehicle rolled off the line, it has passed rigorous inspection and been delivered to Yutong’s reception department. It will be used for receiving the customers who visit Yutong to share Yutong’s development achievements together with them.
In fact, either the 60,000 annual sales volume or the over 10,000 sales volume of new energy buses is only a phase during Yutong’s development history. The year of 2014 is drawing to a close while the year of 2015 is approaching, and Yutong is expected to bring new surprises to us in the future.
