2008 Nine-Month Diesel Engine Unit Sales 13% Higher

SINGAPORE, November 10, 2008: China Yuchai International Limited ("China Yuchai" or the "Company"), announced today that, on an unaudited basis, its total revenues for fiscal year 2007 were approximately RMB 9.5 billion (US$1.4 billion) compared with total revenues of RMB 6.9 billion (US$1.0 billion) on an audited basis in fiscal year 2006. Net income for fiscal year 2007 is expected to be significantly above the net income of RMB 111.3 million (US$16.2 million) achieved in fiscal year 2006.

China Yuchai is finalizing its unaudited consolidated 2007 financial statements and unaudited consolidated 2008 interim financial statements in conformity with US GAAP. The unaudited consolidated 2007 financial statements will be released as soon as they are available.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2008, diesel engine unit sales increased 13% to 320,526 units compared with 283,720 units in the same period in 2007. With the continued growth in the diesel engine industry in the nine months ended September 30, 2008, the Company's subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited (GYMCL), maintained its No. 1 ranking for diesel engine unit sales, according to statistics released by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

The unit sales growth by GYMCL was propelled by robust engine sales in the first six months of 2008 prior to the implementation of the stricter National III engine emission standards on July 1, 2008 in the PRC. However, in the third quarter of 2008, the Chinese automotive industry began to experience a slowdown and the full effects of the global financial crisis is expected to continue to dampen demand.
