Not that many commercial vehicle manufacturers exhibited at Auto China 2018 this year, and even those that were there did not exhibit as great a variety of products as expected. In fact the number of commercial vehicles on display might have been the smallest in the history of the Beijing Auto Show, and many were new energy vehicles. Was traditional internal combustion engine powertrain put in the backburner?
In fact it was exactly the opposite. There were quite a few highlights as far as the type of powertrain that were equipped on vehicles on display: two were 560 horsepower engines, nearly two-thirds of the engines were 13L and China 6 emissions-compliant engines dominated.
