Yutong Master has assembled the 500th unit of the Yutong ZK6138HP intercity bus model introduced in September 2021 in Pakistan.
In this connection, a line-off ceremony was held to celebrate the milestone, which was achieved in only 20 months, according to an update by the company.
Yutong Master is a joint venture between China’s Henan-based Yutong Group and Pakistan’s Karachi-based Master Motor Corp.
Yutong Master locally assembles four models of the Yutong intercity bus family. These include intercity coaches, shuttle buses, city buses, BRT buses, school buses and recreational vehicles. These buses can be customised as per the requirements of the customers, according to Master Motor.
According to the company, Yutong bus is the market leader in Pakistan’s intercity transport segment with 61% market share as of 2020-21. Currently, more than 1,600 Yutong buses are running on Pakistani roads, according to the Master Motor.
Master Motor signed a technical license agreement with Yutong in 2013 to enter into intercity bus segment of Pakistan. The first bus lined off from the plant in February 2016. By 2017-18, Yutong-Master had captured more than 49% of Pakistan’s intercity transport segment, covering all major routes of the country.
