DEUTZ AG and SANY, China’s largest construction equipment and truck manufacturing group, have installed a jointly developed engine into a new truck model for the first time. The ‘Kingway 435’ truck unveiled by SANY in China is further evidence of the successful collaboration within the joint venture and marks the return of DEUTZ to the on-highway business.

The D12 engine has a power output of 360 kW, speed of 1,900–2,100 rpm, and maximum torque of 2,150 Nm. The powerful, electronically controlled common rail injection system enables optimized combustion and optimum engine performance with low fuel consumption. The engine meets the Euro VI emissions standard.
“We are delighted that we and our partner SANY have been able to bring the first D12 engine produced by the joint venture into action inside a truck. The new truck is a further demonstration of our combined development know-how and signals our return to the onhighway segment,” says DEUTZ CEO Dr. Frank Hiller.

The joint venture between DEUTZ and SANY is part of SANY’s intelligent heavy truck project, a big-ticket project within the framework of SANY’s digitalization strategy. In addition to various off-highway applications, DEUTZ is also taking over the manufacture of heavy-truck engines.

The new truck was presented to the public virtually in a ten-hour livestream from the SANY heavy truck headquarters in Changsha, capital of Hunan province. The figures already show that it is set to be a bestseller: 1,000 trucks were sold within just 39 seconds of the ‘Kingway 435’ being unveiled
