China Delivers Batch Of 120 Higer Buses
     Recently, the first batch of 120 12m Higer buses was delivered to Karachi. As one of “Made in China” representatives, the buses will guarantee Pakistan’s daily transportation, providing the locals with comfortable and perfect public transportation experience.“We officially entered the Pakistani market in 2008. Last year, we sold a total of 115 passenger coaches and city buses locally. At the beginning of this year, we have launched in-depth cooperation with the governments of Sindh and Islamabad by customising 250 and 30 buses respectively,” noted Higer buses South Asian Market Overseas Account Manager Zhang Bangguo in an interview with China Economic Net.

     With the delivery of the first batch of Higer buses, 130 more buses will be delivered to Sindh soon.On the first day after the delivery of buses, Sindh minister of transport and mass transit and minister of labour and human resources arrived for a test ride.They both agreed that the first batch of buses was a solid step to improve the public transportation system in Karachi.The Higer buses meet the regulatory requirements of the local government, and have also undergone a series of adaptive improvements according to habits and aesthetics of the locals.
The first batch of Higer buses will provide services to six major cities in Sindh, including Karachi. The powertrain of the buses, with a gasoline-electric hybrid design, can ensure normal operation and promote sustainable development of urban transportation.“Considering the high temperature in Pakistan, we have made research and development on the air conditioning system to meet the local needs. When the ambient temperature is 45-degree Celsius, the air conditioning system can lower the inner temperature to 23-25 degree within 30 minutes after the bus runs,” emphasised Zhang.
     “And taking into account the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic, these buses are also equipped with a special air filtration system and a disinfecting spray system. After operation, the driver can press the button to control the automatic spray system to disinfect the bus,” he added.“At present, new energy buses are only operating in a few areas in Pakistan, such as Peshawar and Karachi. I think the follow-up market potential is very huge.”Zhang told CEN that further personnel expansion plans have been put on the agenda and more Pakistani employees will be recruited.
“We will provide regular systematic training programmes for the employees, which will also give a boost to the local employment.”Higer Bus has established a complete after-sales service team to provide after-sales service for customers in Pakistan, a country along “the Belt and Road”.“The development of new energy buses is of great significance to Pakistan, which can not only reduce the local dependence on oil, but also achieve the long-term goal of green and low-carbon development,” Zhang concluded at the end of the interview.
