According to the agreement, the two parties will work more closely to develop the new generation of King Long Dido autonomous driving logistic vehicles. So far, 134 units Dido autonomous driving logistic vehicles have been put into service in 15 cities across China.

In 2021, a red-colored King Long autonomous driving city bus officially started operation in Yongchuan District in Chongqing.

In November, 2021, King Long revealed its latest achievements: King Long Cloud Innovation Digital Factory and its Smart GO Intelligent Transportation Solution.

Currently, King Long intelligent buses & coaches are working smoothly in 39 commercial bus operation venues in 32 cities across China. So far, it has provided more intelligent transportation services to over 140,000 passengers.

As one of the leading bus makers in China, King Long has served a number of high-profile events, including 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, 2010 World Expo, 2012 London Olympic Games, 2017 BRICS Xiamen Summit, 2018 World Cup and Papua New Guinea APEC conference.
