In the first three quarters this year, Zhongtong’s sales volume of new energy buses reached nearly 9,000 units, accounting for nearly 20% of the whole market in China and ranking the second place in the market.


The key of Zhongtong’s success lies in its well developed plug-in co-axial parallel connection technologies. Boasting superior reliability and stability, Zhongtong new energy buses equipped with the technologies achieve higher energy efficiency and can climb slopes more easily. Since the debut of such competitive new energy bus manufacturing technologies in 2014, Zhongtong plug-in hybrid buses have been well received in the market. So far, the number of such buses has reached 10,000 units.


In recent years, Urumqi’s public transport has been witnessing huge changes. Currently, the city has 2,186 units buses with varied power systems. With a total number of 1,105 units, Zhongtong now holds more than half of the city bus market in Urumqi. In November 2015, 30 units Zhongtong BRT buses officially made their way to Xinjiang market. Currently, 70% of CNG buses are branded with Zhongtong.


In 2004, Zhongtong officially set up its branch in Xinjiang. With over a decade’s cultivation and expansion in the market, the bus maker has so far established a well-connected after-sales network in the autonomous region. This year in particular, Zhongtong received some major orders from Urumqi, Aksu, Bole and Kashgar.
