FCA makes its decision for automatic transmission

Monday, December 2, 2019

Fiat Chrysler (FCA), one of the world's leading car manufacturers, has announced that it has chosen ZF as its automatic transmission supplier.

Fiat Chrysler (FCA) announced that it has chosen ZF as its supplier of automatic transmissions. The main production facility of the new and fourth generation transmission, which will begin mass production in 2022, will be the ZF’s factory in Saarbruecken. The company also plans to begin production of this technology in other places in the future, including the US and China.

Wolf-Henning Scheider, CEO of ZF, said: uz We are delighted to be named by FCA as a global transmission supplier. This order confirms our second major order for the new 8HP, focusing on hybrid and plug-in hybrid technologies and our strategy to develop attractive products in these areas. ”

Optimized for electrification

The new 8-speed automatic transmission is compatible with almost all segment vehicles and is flexible enough to be integrated into all vehicles where the engine is positioned ahead and horizontally. A technical innovation of the ZF’s new gearbox that the 8HP gearbox has developed on is the integration of electric drive.

With this, ZF also supports its customers in achieving their CO2 reduction targets. With this modular gearbox concept, manufacturers will be able to provide flexibility to meet market requirements and easily switch from one gearbox option to another.

This agreement between the two companies emphasizes the importance of ZF's global production network. Just a few months ago, ZF signed a contract with BMW for the delivery of the latest generation of the 8HP transmission under the largest order in its history.
