An automotive vehicle’s transmission arrangement comprises the whole of the components concerned with transmitting ECE or ICE power as well as F-M, P-M or E-M motor power to the road wheels, that is, the M-M clutch and manual transmission (MT), termed the ‘gearbox’, semi-automatic transmission (SAT), fully-automatic transmission (FAT) or continuously-variable transmission (CVT), the propeller shaft (driveshaft), and final drive gearing, and the axles and bearings for the driving wheels [Holmes 1977].
