Shanghai, September 26, 2008 ( On September 21, the 141 King
Long (Golden Dragon) luxury buses made by Xiamen King Long Auto were
loaded onto a freight ship at Xiamen Dongdu port. This is the first big
batch of King Long buses exported to the Cuban market and also the
biggest-ever order from South America for King Long buses, said a Xiamen

The 141 King Long luxury buses exported to Cuba include six types,
ranging from the 6-meter bus to the 12-meter one. To meet the needs of
Cuban customers and the local conditions in the South American country,
Xiamen King Long has improved much on many features of its current bus
models, such as the medical kit box, carpet, audio system, baggage
racks, and clothes cabinets, to make the bus more passenger-friendly. In
addition, the King Long bus has anti-corrosive properties and can
operate well in the humid, rainy Cuban climate.

Xiamen Jing Long has sent three employees to escort the 141 buses to
Cuba. They will provide training to the local technicians and drivers on
how to operate and drive the Jing Long buses. The Chinese bus maker is
also preparing to set up a Jing Long bus components center in Cuba.

This year, Xiamen Jing Long buses have rolled into 10 emerging markets
including Australia and Cuba, bringing the number of its export
destinations to more than 50 countries and regions from the 40 of last
year. From January to August, the export revenue of Xiamen Jing Long
reached 900 million yuan ($132 million), exceeding the total of the
whole year 2007.
