Abstract

In 2018, Mercedes-Benz launched with the new A-class the first model of a new generation of compact cars. Mercedes-Benz announced already the first three vehicles with the A class, the A class sedan and the B-class. A complete new modular set of drivetrain is available for the 4th generation of compact cars. This drivetrain modular set consists of a new 6-speed manual transmission, three new optimized 7-speed automatic transmission and a completely new 8-speed automatic transmission with many technical features. For all wheel-drive availability, an optimized power take off unit and a new rear torque-on-demand axle is available. Furthermore, the complete drivetrain modular set is not yet complete.
