Perodua Ativa's (D55L) CVT to be better than Proton's. What's the D in D-CVT?

First things first: the upcoming 2021 Perodua Ativa’s Dual-Mode CVT (D-CVT) should not be confused with Toyota’s Direct Shift CVT, seeing that the latter features a launch gear, but the D-CVT doesn’t.With that out of the way, let’s take a closer look at Perodua’s first-ever CVT-type automatic transmission.What’s so special about it?Unlike traditional belt- or chain-driven CVTs, what sets the Ativa’s D-CVT apart from the competition is its combination of

Lexus UX’s Direct-Shift CVT is a CVT enthusiasts can accept

During the recent Lexus UX drive, we were impressed with how the CVT operates and feel. Combined with the new 2.0-litre Dynamic Force four-cylinder engine, the Lexus UX felt peppy and engaging to drive around town.However, not many are aware of Toyota’s CVT being one of the most technologically advanced CVT out there, so we decided to share this with you readers for further understanding.  First, we need to understand the concept of CVT.

No Toyota Direct Shift CVT for the Perodua D55L, why?

The 2021 Perodua D55L is Perodua’s first-ever model to be fitted with a CVT-type automatic. Now, before you throw a tantrum at the mere mention of CVT, the one fitted to the D55L is very different from CVTs of yore.You see, the Perodua D55Ls Dual-mode CVT (D-CVT) features a combination of steel chains and gear set, vastly different from regular CVTs that utilizes only belts or chains. Mechanically, the D-CVT is similar but not identical to Toyotas vaunted Direct Shift CVT, despite both uni

Is it true that  cars with CVT are less reliable?

The benefits of CVT have been repeated many and many times over – simple design, better fuel efficiency, smooth gear shifts, and infinite gear ratios. So much so, that city cars by Nissan, Honda, and Toyota mainly use CVTs.Common fears regarding CVT are overheating CVTs and snapped CVT belts. But how much truth is there to these fears?1.

Perodua Ativa(D55L)的CVT要比Proton的好,但D-CVT中的D指的是什么?

首先,即将上市的2021 Perodua Ativa所使用的双模式CVT(D-CVT)和Toyota的Direct Shift CVT是不同的,后者配备了一个起步齿轮,而D-CVT并没有这个。将这一点解释清楚后,我们再来仔细分析一下这具Perodua首次使用的CVT自排变速箱。它有什么特殊的?与使用皮带或钢链的CVT不同,Ativa的D-CVT的特殊之处在于,它同时使用了钢链条和行星齿轮组。行星齿轮组作为钢带的补充,能够给予CVT更直接的动力传递。D-CVT的行星齿轮组D-CVT的工作原理同其它CVT变速箱类似,它在停车起步和低速下使用钢带驱动在低速下,D-CVT使用钢带驱动不过,在中高速下,离合器会接合,此时动力会通过行星齿轮组进行传递,这能模拟出与扭力转换器变速箱相似的驾驶体验。通俗易懂地说,D-CVT的工作原理与Toyota的Direct Shift CVT是截然相反的,其行星齿轮组是在高速情况下使用w的,而不是用于停车起步的。在高速下,行星齿轮组通过离合器进行接合除了减少变速箱的动力迟滞外,D-CVT也能降低引擎的油耗。在这方面,Ativa的官方公布油耗低至百公里5.29公升。

Perodua为何不使用Toyota Direct Shift CVT?

2021 Perodua D55L是Perodua旗下首款搭载CVT自排变速箱的车型。不过,虽然D55L采用了CVT变速箱,但这具变速箱跟你想象中的CVT可不一样。Perodua D55L搭载的是双模式CVT(D-CVT),这具变速箱结合了钢带和齿轮组两种传动结构,这与仅使用钢带或链条的普通CVT变速箱有着很大的差别。从机械结构上看,D-CVT和Toyota旗下的Direct Shift CVT都采用了钢带和齿轮组的混合结构,这也是两者唯一的共同点。从实际工作原理上看,这两者也有着很大的差别。推荐阅读:Perodua Ativa(D55L)的CVT要比Proton的好,但D-CVT中的D指的是什么?Toyota的Direct Shift CVT是什么?Toyota的Direct Shift是Toyota在CVT技术上最新的成果,它能够达到接近于双离合(DCT)变速箱的性能,同时又能保持CVT的平顺性和经济性。它在多个TNGA-B平台的Toyota车型上都有搭载,如Toyota Yaris和Toyota Yaris Cross等;同时,它也被TNGA-K平台的车型所采用,如Toyota
