In recent years, TCM Nam Kwong has actively practiced the concept of environmental protection, and has helped the widespread use of environmentally friendly vehicles in Macao. Since 2021, it has replaced buses with green buses suitable for Macao road conditionsin batches to provide more green travel services for Macao citizens and tourists visiting Macao. With its rich experience in research and developmentof new energy buses, as well as excellent product quality and brand influence, Higer Bus has stood out among many peers and has successfully won the bulk order of new energy buses. In the future, 90 Higer extended-range electric buses will be successively put into operation in Macao to support the green upgrade of local public transportation.
The winning model is Higer sixth generation of intelligent connected vehicles, Azure series, which brings together a number ofcutting-edge intelligent technologies. The appearance of the vehicle adopts classic European boxy shape, and the color is mainly orange and white, which is fashionable and lively; the shape adopts the right-hand drive three-door design pioneered by Higer Bus in the industry. The front, middle and rear doors can realize the rapid and orderly boarding and alighting of passengers, so as to make more effective use of the compartment space. In rush hours, passengers can also be guided to board the bus from the middle door, reducing the boarding time of passengers and improving the boarding and alighting efficiency; With low floor, subway-style sliding plug door and intelligent kneeling function,the vehicle automatically lowers itself at the passenger side after arriving at the station, which greatly facilitates passengers and improves the riding experience. So far, more than 4000 Higer Azure buses have been running in Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Sichuan, Chongqing and other provinces and cities, becoming the most beautiful sight to behold on the streets.
Higer Bus entered the Macao market in 2006. At present, it has more than 700 buses in the local market, ranking second among Chinese bus brands. With low-entrance three-doorbuses, extended-range electric buses, photovoltaic extended-range electric buses, and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge shuttle bus put into operation in 2018, specially tailored for the Macao bus market, Higer Bus has a high brand recognition in Macao. The operation of Higer extended-range electric bus will undoubtedly further help the transformation and upgrading of urban public transportation services in Macao to environmental protection services.
Looking forward to the future, Higer Bus will work with TCM Nam Kwong to continuously improve the service level of public transportation, and especially make joint efforts to build a green travel ecosystem in Macao, making the transportation better for Macao citizens and making green buses an icon of Macao in terms of the quality of urban life.
