Among Punch Powertrain’s high-performance CVTs, PX1 is a new CVT variant based on VT3 concept, enhanced to address evolving current and future market needs.
Cost efficient performance
Inheriting features from the high running VT3, PX1 represents a compact and cost competitive transmission. While maintaining design compactness, the final drive ratio is increased to 6.65. Furthermore the design offers an enhanced NVH performance, while its stepless shifting enables favorable driveability. An increased fuel efficiency is further achieved by keeping the engine and powertrain in an optimal operating area.
Future oriented options
Thanks to its increased torque rating (230 Nm), this enhanced CVT is much suited for the next generation engines. In terms of launch and hill performance (on >30% slopes) the PX1 achieves significant improvements, compared to its predecessor, as well as, outperforms competing transmissions. New additions further include the shift-by-wire option and several protection modes in order to perform in most severe driving conditions.
Class leading quality standards
Praised for its quality and robustness, PX1 is positioned among the most reliable transmissions on the market. Several key components were optimized to achieve a new level in CVT quality standards.
The main component PX1 is proud to launch on the Chinese market is the new 24/9 3rd Generation Bosch push belt. Improved on both the loops and the elements, this push belt supports the increased torque level and additionally provides some margin.
