Yutong ZK6116HG

Yutong ZK6116HG is a city bus produced by Zhengzhou Yutong Bus Co. in China since 2021.

One of the key features of this bus is the low floor at the entrance, as well as independent air suspension of the front wheels. All components and assemblies have been developed taking into account the larger dimensions of the bus.

The bus body is all-metal and serves as a load-bearing structure. The body is processed by electrophoresis. The front and rear bumpers are made of steel. Electrically operated pneumatic double doors open inwards. They are equipped with emergency switches and an anti-pinch device. The heating system consists of an independent Spheros heater, six wall radiators, two cassette radiators and a radiator for the driver.

The braking system is a dual-circuit, independent-circuit pneumatic system that also features a spring-loaded parking brake. The system from WABCO includes ABS and ASR functions. Rear view mirrors are electrically adjustable and heated.

The gas version of the bus has cylinders on the roof, which makes it significantly heavier. As a result, the total weight of the bus increases by 700 kg.

In 2023, the 12.2-meter Yutong ZK6128HG bus of the same generation was introduced. Its maximum capacity has been increased to 90 passengers. A third double-leaf door appeared in the rear overhang, and the floor became low throughout the entire cabin.

Chinese-assembled buses received certification in Russia in January 2023. Two Yuchai engines are available for this model: an 8.5-liter diesel with 317 HP or 10-liter gas with 314 HP. Both engines are paired with a ZF automatic transmission.

Since 2019, there is also an electric version of this bus – Yutong ZK6128BEVG.
