JATCO strengthens its electrified powertrain framework: a part of Nissan’s electrified powertrain design and development

Electrified powertrains are necessary for the promotion of electrification, which is core to Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.’s business. JATCO, in order to assist in handling the sudden increase in demand for electrified powertrains, has strengthened its electrified powertrain development framework, and will be in charge of a portion of the design and development work for Nissan’s electrified powertrains. In addition to its current ATs and CVTs, JATCO will contribute in the field of electrified powertrains with regards to Nissan’s electrification strategy.

JATCO will enhance its electrified powertrain technologies, and in combination with the technologies it has cultivated over years of AT and CVT development, production, and vehicle integration, strengthen its electrified powertrain design and development frameworks in order to provide ever more competitive electrified powertrain units. As part of these efforts, JATCO’s Zama R&D Center (Zama City, Kanagawa Prefecture) has been established to handle the new electrified powertrain experimentation work.

Given this strengthening, JATCO’s VP of R&D, Kohichi Takemoto, said “The demand for electrified powertrains is expected to further increase with the continuing electrification of automobiles. JATCO will enhance its electrified powertrain development ability, and by combining this with the gear-train technologies it has gained from its CVT products, develop highly competitive products in regards to electrified powertrains as well, and contribute to the advancement of Nissan’s electrification strategy.”
