Self Study Program 284 – 6-speed automatic gearbox 09E in the Audi A8 2003 – Part 2

VAG SSP 284. The new 6-speed automatic gearbox 09E represents the logical next stage in the development of the multi-step automatic gearbox concept. It sets new standards in its class as regards economy, dynamics and comfort.

Speed-change gearboxes are of prime importance with regard to fuel consumption, emission levels, dynamics and comfort in the vehicle.

New concepts such as automatic gearshift systems or continuously variable automatic transmission represent alternatives to the conventional multi-step automatic gearbox.

For a combination of high torque transmission levels with corresponding ride comfort, the multi-step automatic gearbox remains the uncompromising option in terms of torque conversion.

The 09E was developed and is manufactured by the renowned system supplier ZF.
Together with the gearbox development specialists at Audi, the unit was adapted to the quattro drive concept and vehicle-specific requirements.

The 09E is the first representative of a new 6-speed gearbox family which is to include further additions to both the top and bottom end of the torque transmission scale.

The new 6-speed generation is designed to replace the familiar 5-speed 01V and 01l automatic gearboxes.
