JATCO participates in the 2017 Seoul Motor Show

JATCO Ltd, the No.1 CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) manufacture, will exhibit at the 2017 Seoul Motor Show (see below for list), which will take place at the Korea International Exhibition Center from March 30 (press day) to April 9.

Facing strict regulations to limit greenhouse car emissions, car manufacturers – including Nissan, Renault Samsung and GM Korea – are grateful for companies like JATCO because, unlike regular automatic transmissions, its CVTs allow a car’s engine to run in an area of high fuel efficiency, providing smooth acceleration and a comfortable ride.

The JATCO booth showcases the main CVT models including the “Jatco CVT8”, “Jatco CVT7 W/R*”, “Jatco CVT7” and “Jatco CVT8 HYBRID”. In addition, a CVT virtual driving experience area based on virtual reality technologies will be available at the booth, allowing visitors to experience CVT driving in person, and understand that the transmission transmits the power of the engine or motor through optimum control, and plays a vital role in realizing automotive dynamics and fuel economy. *W/R: Wide Range

As a specialized manufacturer of automatic transmissions, JATCO has industrialized a number of “the world’s first” technologies, and always has led the industry’s development. In particular in the CVT field, JATCO has always been the global market share leader of the whole CVT series from mini-, small vehicles to 3.5L-class vehicles as the world’s sole manufacturer. In the global CVT output of 2016, JATCO held the highest share of 37% in the industry.
