Recently, Land Rover demonstrated their latest world first at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show - the world’s first 9-speed automatic transmission in a passenger car. The ZF 9HP transmission is specifically designed for transverse applications, making it one of the most efficient and technically advanced transmissions ever used in a production vehicle.
Land Rover was the lead partner on the project, working together with ZF who are widely recognised as the world leader in transmission technology. Increasing the number of gear ratios from six to nine gives significant improvement in fuel economy and reduces the CO2 emissions; What’s more, the 9HP is extremely robust and perfectly complements Land Rover’s rugged all-terrain ability whilst delivering exceptionally high levels of refinement and efficiency.
“We are extremely excited about the 9HP which has been tailored exactly to dovetail with the unique attributes of our vehicles. It will add another layer of performance, refinement and efficiency, further enhancing Land Rover’s world class abilities,” said John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.
