New King Long Bus Now Available in Malaysia
TC Trucks Sales Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Tan Chong Motor Holdings Berhad, scored another milestone recently with the Malaysia launch of the new King Long XMQ6120AS bus chassis by China’s Xiamen King Long United Automotive Industry Co Ltd. Available in two chassis variants – premium XMQ6120AS-P and standard XMQ6120AS-S specifications – this new bus is aimed at fleet owners and tour and travel operators.
The well-attended launch event was graced by Dato’ Tan Heng Chew, President of Tan Chong Motor Holdings, and Simon Xie Wei Guo, Director of Overseas Sales and Marketing, Xiamen King Long United Automotive Industry.
King Long specialises in the design, research and development, manufacturing, and sales and services of large and medium-sized buses, coaches and minivans. With three large manufacturing bases in China, King Long is one of the largest bus and coach manufacturers and produces more than 20,000 buses and coaches, and 30,000 mini vans annually.
The new King Long intercity express and tourist coach chassis is the first bus chassis to be introduced following TC Trucks Sales’ appointment in June 2018 as the sole and exclusive distributor, assembler and aftermarket service provider of King Long coaches and buses in Malaysia.
Tan Keng Meng, Head of Tan Chong Group Truck & Bus Business Division, said: “The new King Long XMQ6120AS bus chassis is designed to provide customers with reputable and reliable bus chassis solutions for various applications to meet our customers’ business demands. It offers excellent innovation for efficient mobility and we are very confident this is the bus chassis that would set new benchmarks in bus performance, comfort, reliability, durability and safety, which is a highly essential aspect in the bus industry.
“The introduction of this new bus chassis marks a key milestone for us. Leveraging on our extensive network of branches, quality aftermarket services and capabilities offered within our group, we are confident of bringing success to the King Long brand and market presence here,” added Tan.
The XMQ6120AS-P premium variant chassis is powered by a Weichai 400hp engine with ZF’s 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine with low speed and high torque boasts two ‘great’ features – dynamic performance and lower-than-estimated fuel consumption. In addition, the noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) map optimisation provides ‘excellent’ comfort and deluxe experience to the driver and passengers.
Meanwhile, the XMQ6120AS-S standard variant chassis is equipped with a powerful yet lighter and compact Cummins 375hp engine with 6-speed manual transmission. It is described as a fuel-efficient 8.9-litre engine. With a lighter weight than competitive engines, operators benefit from high performance, strong acceleration, fuel economy and lower operating costs.
Simon Xie said: “The new King Long XMQ6120AS bus chassis is one of our latest innovations offering efficient and reliable mobility solutions. King Long is one of the world’s largest bus and coach manufacturers with more than 30 years of experience in professional bus and coach manufacturing, with an annual production capacity of 50,000. We own top-notch enterprise technology centres, post-doctoral research stations, safety and energy testing centres and institutions, and are fully committed to creating products that meet global market demands.
“King Long’s products are exported to more than 180 countries and Malaysia is one of the important markets in this region. TC Trucks Sales has made a lot of effort and we are proud that it is our partner here. We believe that in the longer-term future, this partnership would help to introduce more King Long bus products here,” added Xie.
This new King Long bus chassis has undergone stringent tests in accordance with global standards. The bus is fitted with a speedometer that is compatible with the advanced CAN-Bus technology for easy monitoring of all electrical devices and detection of any malfunction details, thus improving safety and reliability.
It is also equipped with Wabco’s anti-lock braking system or ABS, which prevents the wheels from locking during emergency braking situations. This helps the driver maintain vehicle stability and come to a complete stop within the shortest possible distance and in the safest way.
Other safety features include full air brakes, front disc brakes, six airbags and speed limiter function that is set at 90km/h, according to the regulation set by the Road Transport Department, Malaysia.
The bus has full air suspension feature for enhanced comfort. In addition, it is also designed to provide a good driving height for better drivability, stability and comfortable ride.
TC Trucks Sales is offering a promotional package that includes RM8,000 rebate on bus chassis with three free maintenance service for parts and labour for the first 40 units booked, of which 19 are already sold to four customers – Five Stars Express Tour & Travel Sdn Bhd, Mayflower Car Rental Sdn Bhd, Pioneer Coachbuilders Sdn Bhd and Siang Malam Travel & Express Sdn Bhd.
Customers would enjoy a 2 years or 200,000km warranty.
