The new generation "Yellow River" truck features innovations in appearance, interior design and intelligent technologies. For example, the truck has a lower drag coefficient due to its unique shape. The seats have also been designed to afford drivers with greater levels of comfort.
The vehicle is also equipped with advanced driving assistance functions such as automatic acceleration, braking and steering, allowing drivers to better deal with traffic congestion and avoid rear-end collisions.
The truck will reduce driving costs by up to 60,000 yuan ($8,860.01) a year.
