JATCO to participate in the Automotive Engineering Exposition 2013

JATCO Ltd. (President & CEO Takashi Hata, Headquartered in Fuji City, Shizuoka, Japan, Capital: 29,935,300,000 JPY), a company specializing in automatic, continuously variable transmission (AT CVT), will exhibit its products at Automotive Engineering Exposition 2013, organized by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan (JSAE), to be held at the Pacifico Yokohama Exhibition Hall from May 22 to May 24, 2013 (3 days).

JATCO will present its full CVT lineup, including the Jatco CVT7 (new generation and the world’s first CVT with auxiliary gearbox), two Jatco CVT8 (new generation CVT for medium and large front wheel drive vehicles), Jatco CVT8 HYBRID (New transmission for front wheel drive hybrid vehicles), seven-speed automatic transmission for rear wheel drive hybrid vehicles and four-speed automatic transmission for front wheel drive vehicles, in order to present the unique features of its products and efforts to reduce its environmental footprint. The booth will also display an operating principle model, which enables attendees to learn about the actuation mechanism of the belt CVT.

JATCO newly established a brand slogan “The Mission is Passion”. Attendees are able to learn JATCO as a brand in the booth more than ever.

JATCO has the largest market share on a global basis for continuously variable transmissions (CVT). JATCO will continue to carry out all kinds of technological development for CVT and AT to contribute to providing users with improved fuel efficiency and a more comfortable driving performance, including research and development for the improvement of performance, the optimal synchronization between transmissions and engines, and the development of lighter and more compact units.


Exhibit Overview

●Jatco CVT8 (2 cutaway models): New generation CVT for medium and large FWD vehicles
