Cheng Shenghui, Manager of Mercedes-Benz Powertrain China, and his team took part in a visit to Xiamen Golden Dragon. During the official ceremony, the environmentally-friendly and powerful aggregates from Mercedes-Benz were presented and the future-oriented collaboration with Xiamen Golden Dragon was highlighted. 'In collaboration with the colleagues from Germany and the local experts in China, a product in the form of the Navigator was able to be created,' said Cheng Shenghui, who highlighted the specific requirements placed on touring coach operations during his presentation. The integral powertrain from Mercedes-Benz is particularly impressive thanks to its environmental compatibility, its economic efficiency, its high quality standards and the new technologies. This will also support the worldwide market presence of Golden Dragon buses.
