Sunwin Buses Poised for Delivery

The two deliveries are particularly significant considering all the vehicles are manufactured by Sunwin, a joint venture co-funded by SAIC and Sweden-based Volvo. In addition, all the key components on these vehicles are made by several well recognized international brands based in China, including Dongfeng Cummins Engine Co., Ltd., ZF Drivetech (Suzhou) Co., Ltd., Actia (Shanghai) Auto Electronic Equipment Co., Ltd., Dongfeng Dana Axle Co., Ltd.

Among these companies, Dongfeng Cummins Engine Co., Ltd. manufactured all the engines for the 422 units Sunwin buses. Specifically, the 122 units luxury coaches SWB6120A are equipped with Dongfeng Cummins ISLe 8.9 liter engines and the 300 units school buses are all mounted with Dongfeng Cummins ISD6.7 liter engines. According to the engine maker, the former is chiefly targeted at the large- and medium-sized buses, especially for the 12-meter buses. Moreover, it only requires maintenance every 20,000 kilometers whole most engines need maintaining every 5,000 kilometers. Thanks to their high reliability and high fuel economy, both engines have long won the widespread recognition among bus makers and bus operators from both home and abroad.
