In addition, a batch of Ankai Best K7 was successfully delivered to their customer in Heilongjiang, showing the rising popularity of the vehicle in the province. According to the bus maker, three versions of driveline, gasoline-powered, diesel powered and electricity powered, are available for Best K7 to meet customers’ varied needs. With newly upgraded design, the seven-meter bus is readily adjustable to different markets, such as business reception, group tourists transportation, and passenger transportation. In addition, equipped with ABS+EBD, monocoque body structure, front axle independent suspension, Best K7 has gone through cathode electrophoresis treatment and achieves high safety standards.
As one of the pioneers in the high-end passenger transportation market in Heilongjiang, Ankai has been maintaining a fast growing momentum in the province. So far, Ankai school buses, city buses, travel coaches, and group passenger transportation coaches, have all established formidable presence there.
In recent years, Ankai was making an all-out effort to develop new energy buses and seek its own transformation. Along with the advances of the new technologies, Ankai new energy buses have become increasingly recognized by bus operators for their high fuel economy and competitive prices. It is expected more environmentally friendly Ankai buses will arrive in northeast China.
Given the extremely low temperatures in the region in winter, the new energy buses must meet a series of stringent requirements. Ankai electric buses have already successfully passed tests at a number of operation conditions with high temperatures, high humidity or extremely low temperatures. Take Ankai HFF6109G03EV electric bus for example. Its major spare parts, interior materials and rubber spare parts have all passed the tests at such extreme temperatures as 80℃ and -40℃. What’s more, its tires are specially made for operation on icy roads, its braking system is further optimized to ensure its smooth and safe operation, and its electric spare parts and batteries have gone through super low temperature treatment to prevent their malfunctioning. To provide extra travel comforts, the interior of the bus has been more sufficiently insulated and its flannelette coated seats make the vehicle more passenger-friendly.
