CO2 Potentials Of Dual-Clutch Transmissions

Dual-clutch Transmissions (DCT) and Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs) have their benefits and disadvantages when it comes to energy efficiency and emissions. Related to regional preferences in Europe and Japan, both transmission types are widespread in the markets. Getrag, Magna Powertrain, compares both transmissions against their possibilities for fuel and CO2 reduction. The more dynamic load conditions in the new WLTC are in favour of the DCT technology.
