JATCO to participate in Automotive Engineering Exposition 2017 Yokohama

JATCO Ltd (President: Teruaki Nakatsuka; head office: Fuji City, Shizuoka, Japan; capital: JPY29.93530 billion), a leading manufacturer of automatic transmissions (ATs/CVTs: continuously variable transmissions), will participate in “Automotive Engineering Exposition 2017 Yokohama” (hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan, Inc.), an automotive technology exhibition that will be held at PACIFICO Yokohama for three days, from May 24 (Wed.) to May 26 (Fri.). The details of JATCO’s participation are as follows.

JATCO booth (booth no. 296)

JATCO will showcase the latest technologies in the areas of fuel efficiency and power performance with JATCO’s hit CVT products, and present the benefit of CVTs as well as how transmissions contribute to vehicle performance. The CVT lineup to be displayed will include the “Jatco CVT7 W/R*”, in addition to the best sellers “Jatco CVT7” and “Jatco CVT8”, along with the “Jatco CVT8 HYBRID”—a transmission for hybrid front-wheel drive vehicles that has outstanding fuel efficiency and power performance. The booth will also feature an operating principle model that demonstrates the mechanisms of CVTs, and a CVT virtual driving corner, which provides an opportunity for visitors to experience riding in a CVT-equipped vehicle through the use of virtual reality (VR) technologies.
*W/R: wide range

JATCO is the only company in the world to offer an extensive lineup of CVTs for automobiles ranging from mini cars to 3.5-liter vehicles, and in 2016, it held the industry’s top share of 37% of worldwide CVT production. At the end of March 2017, JATCO achieved a cumulative production volume of approximately 35 million CVTs.
