Automatic Transmission VT2
The currently produced VT2 accepts engines up to 186 Nm. It was introduced on mild hybrid applications for Hyundai and Kia. This means that the VT2 and its derivatives are all ready to be used in combination with the idle stop functionality in the vehicle.
Over the years, the Punch Powertrain CVTs have been improved in terms of Quality, Comfort and Fuel Economy. Our CVTs are capable to provide the same fuel economy as the same car equipped with a Manual Transmission and in the future, our CVTs will be capable to perform better than a Manual Transmission. This can be achieved by generating a reasonable efficiency on transmission side but more importantly by the CVT's ability to let the engine operate in or near its maximum operating condition for most of the time.
