In 2024, as China's bus export market continues to grow, both Yaxing and Ankai buses have successfully expanded their operations in the Saudi market. Yaxing Buses held an export delivery ceremony in Yangzhou, preparing to ship 1200 luxury highway buses to Saudi Arabia, while Ankai exported 530 multifunctional buses, including luxury coaches and city buses.

Yaxing's export activities signify deep cooperation with Saudi Arabia. Since being acquired by Shandong Heavy Industry Group in 2011, the company has been actively leveraging the group's resources and technological advantages. This batch of luxury highway buses not only serves the Saudi pilgrimage needs but also reflects Yaxing's expertise in manufacturing high-end buses. To enhance service quality, Yaxing relies on Weichai Power's global service network to resolve after-sales issues with bus engines.

To further strengthen market services, Yaxing has established a dedicated office in Saudi Arabia, dispatching technical experts and after-sales service teams. The company has also set up a parts center warehouse and collaborates with third-party professional service stations to ensure parts supply and vehicle maintenance. Additionally, Yaxing arranges for technicians to conduct comprehensive inspections of all vehicles during non-operational times to ensure efficient operation and passenger safety.

Ankai's international efforts also demonstrate its competitiveness in the global market. The N8 double-front luxury bus, the main model for this export, is designed for high-end passenger transport and group commuting, featuring excellent power performance and fuel efficiency. This model has been specially adapted to Saudi's climatic conditions and road requirements, including the use of high-temperature resistant materials and an efficient air conditioning system.

Tailored to the specific needs of the Saudi market, Ankai's N8 model has upgraded interiors and comfort facilities. The bus is equipped with luxury high-back aviation seats and electric sunshades to provide a premium riding experience. Additionally, to improve air quality, the vehicle includes a "PM1.0 level" fifth-generation internal environmental health system, ensuring that passengers enjoy fresh air during their journey. These meticulous designs and technological innovations further strengthen Ankai's presence in the Saudi market.
