Lu, J., "The Design, Development and Industrialization of an New 8 Speed Automatic Transmission in China," SAE Technical Paper 2013-01-1277, 2013, doi:10.4271/2013-01-1277.
Shengrui Transmission Limited Corporate (Shengrui) has developed a new 8 speed automatic transmission (SR 8AT) for front wheel drive (FWD) vehicle. The concept of SR 8AT is unique and different from the conventional automatic transmission. The design of the SR 8AT system and components are new and compact. By combining an innovative gear train which is similar with the conventional manual transmission and the simple planetary gear structure, SR 8AT achieved 8 speed with the shortest length of the FWD transmission, the competitive fuel economy and the smooth shift performance among comparable automatic transmissions.
