Nissan and Jatco have introduced a new jointly developed CVT transmission
Nissan and Jatco have introduced a new jointly developed CVT transmission.
Designed for front-wheel drive vehicles with compact sizes, the CVT7 W/R is based on the CVT7 and uses an auxiliary gearbox. According to our source, it provides “enhanced driving performance” by using technologies such as active slip control to prevent “excessive engine pick-up response when starting off”.
The gearbox uses newly developed belts and improved pulleys with reduced friction by adapting an enhanced small-sized oil pump. At first, the transmission will be fitted in the Nissan Lannia that will go on sale in China this month.
