JATCO has the largest market share on a global basis for continuously variable transmissions (CVT). JATCO is focused on "reducing CO2 through transmissions" and will present its full CVT lineup, including the Jatco CVT8 (New generation CVT for medium and large front wheel drive vehicles), Jatco CVT8 HYBRID (New transmission for front wheel drive hybrid vehicles), and Jatco CVT7 (the world's first CVT with auxiliary gearbox), in order to present the unique features of its products and efforts to reduce its environmental footprint. The booth will display an operating principle model, which enables attendees to learn about the actuation mechanism of the belt CVT. 

JATCO will also exhibit other major products including a transmission for hybrid cars based on 7-speed AT for RWD vehicles, 7-speed AT for RWD vehicles, and 4-speed AT for FWD vehicles for emerging countries.
