Toyota has detailed a new powertrain that it says will reduce C02 emissions in its vehicles by more than 18 percent.

The Japanese automaker says it’s developed a new CVT transmission, a new six-speed manualtransmission, a 2.0-liter engine, a hybrid system that pairs with the 2.0-liter and a new four-wheel drive system, all of which are compatible with the Toyota New Global Architecture that underpins the CH-R and Corolla, among more. The CVT, for starters, includes a ‘launch gear’ that improves efficiency at low speeds, and also offers a 15% larger spread between ratios. Shift speed also improves by 20% over Toyota’s outgoing CVT. The six-speed manual transmission, meanwhile, is described as lightweight, compact and features a dedicated synchronizer for the reverse gear.

Anyone seen any info on mileage figure estimates for 2.0 engine and AWD. New 6 speed Xmission... OK slated for Prius or what? Any info on new CVT as is it true CVT or simulated as via "Traditional" Prius sun and planetary gear system. Reverse gear... now that is a departure from tradition.
