Chennai – WABCO Holdings Inc. and Ashok Leyland have completed an agreement for development of transmission automation technology and the long term supply of automated manual transmission (AMT) systems from 2010 through 2015.

"By partnering with WABCO, we can continue to create value in the marketplace while strengthening our commitment to innovation," said Mr. R. Seshasayee, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland Ltd.

WABCO will supply Ashok Leyland with its new OptiDrive™ modular AMT system, from the year 2010. Ashok Leyland is the first manufacturer of commercial vehicles in India to adopt WABCO’s OptiDrive system in volume production.

WABCO’s new OptiDrive system can change gears in full automatic mode or as initiated by the driver.

"Our long term agreement with Ashok Leyland marks another milestone in expanding and securing WABCO’s global leadership position in automated manual transmission technology," said Hans-Jürgen Sander, WABCO Vice President, Driveline Control.

This agreement with Ashok Leyland is WABCO’s first new major contract since taking control of WABCO-TVS in India two months ago.

"We continue to demonstrate cross-border connectivity between teams from engineering through to customer support. We are also proud to introduce WABCO’s OptiDrive system into India, one of the company’s most sophisticated products,"  said P. Kaniappan, Director, WABCO-TVS (India) Ltd.
