China’s Foton Motor and Cummins have signed a memorandum of cooperation around the launch of the second stage of the China Super Truck program.

Foton said the goal of the effort is “to use new energy-saving technologies to complete the optimization of the powertrain system and vehicle integration, reducing fuel consumption and enhancing transport efficiency, creating globally-leading green smart trucks to comply with the trend of green environmental protection and practice the requirements of U.S.-China clean energy cooperation.”

Since 2008, when Foton Motor and Cummins established a joint venture, engines produced by Foton Cummins that fit light-duty and heavy-duty applications have met the strictest global emission-related laws and regulations, said the Chinese company.
