X11, X12, X13, X11 engineering versions and X12N natural gas versions fully meet the needs of cold chain transportation, hazardous chemicals transportation, express delivery and other efficient logistics and heavy industry. Product transportation, urban muck transportation, mining transportation, heavy-duty transportation, mixer trucks and other engineering transportation industries.
Cummins X series power is the exclusive power for American super trucks. With its excellent intelligent technology and high fuel efficiency, it has become the main power for high-end heavy trucks such as Paka, Navistar and Volvo, and has been recognized by global users. In March 2017, the X12 landed on the Chinese market and was the first to be assembled on the high-end models of Auman EST and EST-A. It can meet the emission standards of China V and Euro VI, and will lead the development of efficient logistics in China.
In 1968, Cummins’ first large-scale technology R&D center was established in Columbus, Indiana, U.S. A number of developers and a strong global R&D network provide Cummins with strong support for the development of new products and new technologies.
Cummins technology research and development business has achieved excellence in the field of engines, power generation systems, and filtration systems. Foton Cummins has also inherited the century-old technology essence of Cummins in the field of research and development, and has been authorized patents.
