ZF cPower CVT transmission
cPower and hybrid module could significantly reduce fuel consumption
ZF used Bauma 2013 to show the next stage of development for its cPower continuously variable transmission (CVT).

By combining the transmission with a hybrid module, ZF said greater operating efficiencies were available from the integration of start/stop technology and energy recovery from regenerative braking.

Potentially, the hybrid drive system has the ability to boost fuel efficiency by up to 25% in addition to the 20% higher operating efficiency already offered by the cPower transmission, said ZF.
