American concern General Motors started the final stage of the development of its own CVT, says the publication Ward’s Auto. The company has already invited suppliers of components to the meeting in its headquarters to form parts for tenders for a new transmission.

With it, the concern is to reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions from their vehicles to comply with all environmental requirements in different parts of the world. In particular, in the United States by 2025, all cars on the market will be required to consume no more than 4.3 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers.

Official technical details of the variator GM yet, but it is known that the transmission will be offered on the global models available worldwide.

Note that GM has already experimented with a variator – a similar mission appeared on cars brands Saturn (owned by GM) in the early 2000s, but the group refused to use it in 2004 due to production delays and claims to the consumer qualities variator – on the multi-point “machines” looked promising.

The publication presents data showing that in the 2014 model year, the share of new cars with the CVT in the US market accounted for 12.1%, while the number of cars with the traditional “machine” has reached 82.9%.

In the global car market share of CVT in 2014 is 10.7%. According to Ward’s Auto surveyed analysts, this figure will rise in 2020 to 14.1%, with much of the gain will be in the markets of the Asia-Pacific region.
