앨리슨 트랜스미션, "우루과이에 오토 미션 장착한 벤츠 버스 147대 판매"
대한민국, 서울 – 2020년 5월 12일 - 앨리슨 트랜스미션은 우루과이 최대 대중교통 회사인 CUTCSA가 전자동 변속기가 장착된 메르세데스-벤츠의 신형 저상 버스 모델(OH 1721) 147대를 최근 구매해 운영하고 있다고 밝혔다.
이 차량에는 앨리슨 트랜스미션의 버스용 전자동변속기 토크매틱 시리즈 제품인 T 270R™ 모델이 장착됐다. 메르세데스 벤츠의 OH 1721 저상 버스는 리타더가 탑재돼 있어 몸이 불편한 승객도 차량이 제동할 때 안전하다. 또, 질소산화물을 적게 배출해 친환경적이다.
에발도 올리베이라 앨리슨 트랜스미션 남미 영업 총괄은 "앨리슨 변속기는 토크 컨버터 성능과 최첨단 어댑티브 컨트롤이 결합돼 파워트레인의 요철을 줄이고, 가속 성능을 높이며, 연료 소비량을 낮춘다"며, "또, 전자 모니터링 시스템을 갖춰, 오일 잔여량을 쉽게 확인할 수 있고, 유지보수가 간편해 생산성이 높다"고 말했다.
CUTCSA는 지난 2010년부터 앨리슨 트랜스미션과 꾸준히 협업하고 있다. CUTCSA는 앨리슨의 전자동 변속기가 장착된 벤츠의 OH 1622 L 버스도 운영하고 있다.
