"We want to build the ultimate AT suitable for luxury automobiles"
We began development with the goal of creating a product that would be the world's best in every category, including fuel consumption, acceleration performance, and quietness, and in 2006, we developed the world's first RWD 8-speed AT.
Compared to conventional ATs, the 8-speed AT employs a wider gear ratio and more detailed gear positions to realize improved power performance and fuel efficiency.
Combining this gear ratio with a high performance engine results in a superior ride and quietness only possible in a luxury vehicle
Size and weight reduction greatly contribute to improved fuel efficiency. For the 8-speed AT, we were able to maintain high rigidity while realizing a 2 kg reduction in weight by integrating the aluminum case.
