DIWA NXT: Voith will showcase the newest development in transmission technology at IAA 2018
- With the new DIWA NXT, the DIWA transmission remains the number one choice for city buses
- The new transmission also meets the needs of the inter-city and coach segment by providing an additional overdrive
- First vehicle measurements confirm passenger comfort and the simulation results regarding efficiency
Following the initial announcement at IAA 2016, Voith continued to work on the new DIWA NXT transmission. The DIWA NXT provides significant performance optimization through the separation of torque converter and retarder which provides both, improved traction and braking performance. It also offers an optimal gear ratio through an additional overdrive resulting in a wider transmission spread with higher flexibility in driveline design, making the DIWA NXT also applicable for inter-city buses and coaches.
Visitors will be able to see a first sample of the transmission as part of the overall theme “Drive New Ways” at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 at Voith booth A14 in hall 17.
