As one of the three most important parts of the automobile, the transmission is not only the topics of old drivers daily bragging, but also the most popular science knowledge of a green hand before buying a car. so even for the drivers with a little understanding of the car, will be able to tell 7/8 /9 speed and AT/CVT/ twin-clutch. But if you know well of the AMT then you can be called the experienced master.

AMT originated in F1 racing, is a kind of manual transmission and under the control of microcomputer. It shifts with higher efficience compared with the AT transmission which is mainly based on the hydraulic torque converter.So it has been widely used in the F1 racing car, and the most famous one is the AMT transmission box used in the the Ferrari, which is made by Marilyn company.

When it comes to oil saving, let’s make a comparison. Why does the old driver always say the manual transmission is the most economical? One of the reasons is that the manual transmission has the advantages of simple structure with less heat loss. As long as a good grasp of the shift timing, we can make it more fuel-efficient than the AT transmission. The principle of AMT gearbox is a manual gearbox with an experienced driver (computer control shifting time), saving 20% oil on the effeciency compared with AT transmission, 5% compared with the manual transmission.(computer control more accurate than the brain).


In fact, the use of AMT is wider in the field of commercial vehicles. Because the load and torque of general commercial vehicle is relatively large, and the frequency of driver using the car is very high, AMT has become the best solution for it is easier to be manufactured than AT transmission and more labor-saving than the manual transmission. It is commonly used in the light passenger vehicle SAIC chase V80 that well known.

As a commercial light passenger vehicle carrying a 2.5T diesel engine, it is a very sensible move for V80 to use the AMT transmission. Although the competing products are also in the times of manual transmission in low quality. But with the light passenger vehicle driver younger and younger, more and more city road congestion, a light passenger vehicle with automatic transmission will undoubtedly be more popular. After all, No one wants to drive a diesel vehicle with a huge torque and cheap clutch to move forward in a congested city.

Although we always say that the AMT gearbox is a transitional product, but in the field of commercial vehicles, the AMT gearbox is efficient, fuel saving, and can be adapted to the characteristics of high torque. This gearbox technology originated from F1 racing car has finally been able to shine in the second spring.
