"Aiming to create the ultimate AT suitable for luxury cars," we have been engaged in product development in order to achieve the world’s highest performance in every aspect, such as fuel economy, acceleration performance and quietness. We successfully developed the world’s first RWD 8-speed AT in 2006, and the world’s first* RWD 10-speed AT for passenger vehicles in 2017.
