Getrag passes one million DCT landmark

Global transmission manufacturer Getrag has produced its one-millionth dual clutch transmission, the 6DCT250. Starting serial production in April 2010, the six-speed DCT has been the fastest growing DCT to one million units in the industry so far.

The company says that the success of its DCTs is based on the combination of convenience, efficiency and a significant reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

“This goes to show we went for the right product from the start,” added Ernie DeVincent, platform director in charge of the 6DCT250 at Getrag. “As of today, the 6DCT250 is still the transmission architecture with the fastest growing number of units produced. This rapid growth confirms that in this era requiring world-class fuel efficiency, the 6DCT250 is an unquestioned market leader. We currently have orders from four major OEMs for this product.”

Seeing increasingly good prospects in Asia, Getrag will also launch production of the 6DCT250 at its Chinese plant in Nanchang during 2013. The transmission will then be produced on three continents expanding the company’s global footprint.
