Cummins today announced that over 4,000 clean diesel Euro 6 buses are operating in Turkey powered by the F3.8, B4.5, B6.7 and L9 engines across a broad 115 to 246 kW (154-330 hp) output. Since first introduced in early 2016, Cummins Euro 6 engines have been widely used in city bus, shuttle, intercity and tourist  bus applications to make a significant contribution to improving air quality and lowering CO2 greenhouse gas emissions.

The popularity of the Euro 6 low emission engines has established Cummins as the leading supplier to the Turkish bus market in 2017, gaining over a 50 percent share of all installations spanning the 7-to-18 metre length midi and city bus categories. The increasing adoption of Cummins power by the leading bus builders in Turkey can be seen at the BUSWORLD show in Izmir, with far more city buses on display powered by Cummins than any other supplier

“The key to Cummins success in the Turkish bus market has been to go beyond  meeting low emission requirements to also bring enhanced engine performance and improved fuel efficiency, as seen most recently with our upgraded engines for the latest Phase-C requirement of Euro 6,” said Cenk Yavuz, Cummins Territory Leader – Turkey. 

“Equally important, Cummins application engineering expertise ensures that each engine and aftertreatment installation is perfectly integrated within the vehicle chassis and electronically configured to meet specific bus duty-cycle requirements,” added Yavuz. 

Cummins has played an important role in powering exports of Euro 6 buses from Turkey to EU countries, as well as supplying engines to meet emission requirements in other areas, including North America. In 2017 over 1,000 Cummins-powered buses and coaches were exported from Turkey. Bus builders can rely on Cummins worldwide service network with 8,000 locations to fully support their export business.

The introduction of Cummins zero-emission battery electric system at the BUSWORLD Turkey show will fully complement the Euro 6 clean diesel and natural gas engine range, offering the most energy diverse power portfolio in the bus industry to meet every environmental consideration.

"What makes Cummins new electric capability unique in the Turkish market is the application expertise and duty-cycle experience that comes with being the leading Euro 6 power supplier to our bus industry today,” said Yavuz.
