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

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

Sebelum itu, perlu dimaklumkan bahawa CVT ini agak lain daripada CVT yang biasa anda dengar.Berbeza dengan CVT konvensional yang guna belt atau chain, jenis Dual-mode (D-CVT) yang terdapat pada Perodua Ativa (D55L) ini menggunakan steel chain dan set gear.Secara mekanikal, konsep D-CVT adalah sama seperti Toyota Direct Shift CVT.
