New Shengrui 8AT transmission with stop/start functionality

A new version of the Shengrui 8AT transmission will add stop/start functionality to the capabilities of this highly innovative and award-winning 8-speed automatic transmission, co-developed with Ricardo.

Shengrui’s 8AT transmission is the result of a longstanding collaboration with Ricardo. It is already being manufactured at volumes in excess of 8,000 units per month, and is proving to be a highly successful product within the Chinese automotive market. This transmission provides a highly compact design package competitive with less well specified products, flexibility for further adaptation for four-wheel drive, and has the potential for application across a variety of torque capacities.

Under the new contract announced today, Ricardo will support Shengrui Transmission Corporate Limited on the development and first vehicle application of the new stop/start capable version of the 8AT. Ricardo will review the required modifications to the transmission’s control software necessary to facilitate stop/start operation, and will assist in calibrating the unit to the vehicle to ensure that the required in-use performance is delivered.

“Our longstanding collaboration with Ricardo on the development of the transmission has been extremely successful in delivering an advanced technology transmission with real benefits for our customers,” commented Mr. Zhou Liting, vice general manager of Shengrui Transmission Corporate Limited.

Ricardo Asia president, Gary Tan, added: “Ricardo is once again honored to have been selected to support Shengrui on the further development of the 8AT transmission in the form of the new stop/start capable variant. Our collaboration with Shengrui is a fine example of how we can help leading Chinese companies with their aspirations to develop world-class and highly innovative products from concept to production.”
