ZF ‘s Ground-breaking EcoLife transmission

The EcoLife transmissionChanging requirements in public transport, growing competition and rising fuel prices continually require new ways of thinking in the field of bus driveline technology. More and more people are to be transported in increasingly shorter times. City buses become larger, vehicle combination weights higher, engines more powerful.

The EcoLife transmission, the successor to ZF ’s Ecomat

A suitable ZF automatic transmission – the ZF EcoLife transmission – has just been launched in South Africa. The EcoLife transmission is the successor to ZF ’s Ecomat transmission, which was originally launched to the market way back in the 1970s.

The 6-speed transmission can transfer torques of up to 2 000N.m and can resist the high operating temperatures of modern Euro V engines. This new six-speed fully automatic transmission features a host of innovations to promote economy, especially in partnership with new engines and modern emission regulations.
