Yutong has launched YEA, a software- and hardware-integrated EV-specific platform for new energy commercial vehicles, which it says has the potential to revolutionise China’s new energy commercial vehicle sector. The launch event was held with the theme of ‘drive your value’ and drew together over 500 customer representatives from 25 countries and regions to explore the future development direction for new energy commercial vehicles.

Yutong says that YEA achieves seamless integration of software and hardware, significantly enhancing product safety, reliability, and efficiency. The platform delivers super-integration, scalability, and self-evolution, the manufacturer claims, meeting the requirements of different commercial vehicle segments.

Two core components, C-architecture and YOS, form the technical basis of YEA. The combination of these two core components, says Yutong, facilitates functional fusion and redistribution, resulting in a 200% increase in computing power and a 100% improvement in control efficiency. “YEA ensures the complete decoupling of software and hardware while managing all software and hardware involved through a unified management system. This facilitates shorter software delivery cycles while ensuring intelligent driving and riding experiences as well as operational safety,” said Yutong. “YEA also leverages Yutong’s extensive data support to address key pain points in the operation of new energy vehicles, including insufficient range, low operating efficiency, power inadequacy and poor safety,” the company added.
