Domanski Zakrzewski Palinka is advising Toyota Motor Manufacturing Poland on its manufacture of a second electronic continuously variable transmission for low-emission hybrid systems, which will work with a 1.5l engine.
According to DZP, "this project supplements and extends the manufacture of an e-CVT working with a 1.8l engine, started in November 2018. As a result, Toyota’s factory will double the production of electric hybrid transmissions in 2021. Together with other currently implemented modern engine development projects (TNGA – Toyota New Global Architecture), investments at both TMMP plants (in Walbrzych and Jelcz-Laskowice) will be increased to almost PLN 5 billion."
TMMP has two factories in Lower Silesia. The factory in Walbrzych manufactures e-CVTs for low-emission hybrid cars working with a 1.8 liter engine, 1 liter gasoline engines, as well as manual and semi-automatic transmissions. The factory in Jelcz-Laskowice manufactures 1.5 liter petrol engines and also 1.4 liter and 2.2 liter diesel engines. After the production lines for the new 2.0 liter and 1.5 liter engines designed in the TNGA technology are launched, the production capacity of the factory will be 309 thousand powertrain units annually. TMMP factories supply car assembly plants of Toyota, PSA Group, and Lotus run by European companies in the Czech Republic, UK, France, Turkey, and Russia, South Africa, and Japan.
The DZP team is led by Partners Marcin Krakowiak and Anna Glapa and Senior Associate Aneta Wloszek.
