Nissan India is working on low cost AMT

Nissan India is working on low cost AMT

Nissan is rumoured to be developing an Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) for its budget models in India. Nissan’s subsidiary group JATCO makes the X-Tronic CVT automatic gearboxes for the company. However, the Japanese car maker may not source the AMT box from JATCO and it will be made in-house. 

Takashi Hata, senior vice president, India said, “We will take one of our existing manual gearboxes and develop an AMT module for it. This is an easy task and will be economically more viable.” 

This development indicates that the AMT gearbox-equipped Micra, Sunny and even Datsun cars might soon hit Indian markets. The recently launched Celerio AMT is in high demand and has given other car makers food for thought. Nissan will follow Mahindra and Tata who are lining up their AMT-equipped cars for launch. The addition of the AMT transmission might boost the appeal of Nissan branded small cars in India and expect Nissan to offer the same on its diesel models as well.
