In late 2000, Higer successfully and independently developed its first generation bus 6791 measuring 8-meters in length. With revolutionary design, the bus sold over 5,000 units in 2001. This is only one of the many blockbuster buses developed by Higer in the past two decades, which feature a relentless effort in innovation.

As a pioneering bus maker in China, Higer has made its mark in a number of areas, such as developing disc braking technologies, introducing brand new lamps, equipping its buses with large horse-power fuel-saving engines and CAN, setting up the first Customer Call Center in China’s bus market, developing intelligent bus operation system G-BOS.

In just two decades, Higer’s accumulated sales volume has reached over 300,000 units. Also, the bus maker has successfully made its way to over 100 countries and regions across the globe with its accumulated export volume reaching 40,000 units.

In 2006, Higer officially joined hands with Scania. Since then, Higer has significantly improved its overall competitiveness in the global bus market. Currently, Scania Higer buses are synonymous with luxury. Also on October 24, Scania Higer buses started operation on Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, providing more comfortable and more convenient transportation services for passengers.

In the emerging new energy vehicle market, Higer has been playing a pivotal role in China. Boasting a formidable talent pool, it has successfully set up a comprehensive R&D mechanism for developing new energy buses and coaches. Soon, Higer New Energy Testing Center, which was built with a total investment of 157 million RMB, will be put into operation, further strengthening the brand’s R&D capacity. More impressively, Higer new energy buses & coaches have been in smooth operation in a number of cities both at home and abroad, providing greener transportation services for passengers across the globe.

In the intelligent vehicle field, Higer’s 8-meter self-driving electric bus officially gained permission for testing, representing a huge step forward for its commercial operation.

Apart from all these impressive achievements mentioned above, Higer has been holding Bus Safety Lectures across China for many consecutive years. To further enhance its vehicles’ safety standards, it rolled out G-BOS Intelligent Operation System in 2010, which immediately gained wide-spread acclaim. Currently, G-BOS can be found on over 140,000 units buses with the number of users exceeding over 2,000.

In recent years, Higer has been actively involved in promoting a low-carbon lifestyle among the public and encouraging more and more people to opt for green public transport.
