This chapter focuses on designs for passenger car transmissions which are used in production for smaller or larger volumes. Transmission examples beyond the passenger car market are introduced in Chap. 8. The passenger car examples presented here can be divided in two groups: Stepped transmissions and continuously variable transmissions (CVTs). Stepped transmissions have a finite number of gear ratios.
