Self Study Program 390 – The 7-speed Double-clutch Gearbox 0AM

VAG SSP 390. In this self-study programme, you can find out how the new double-clutch gearbox functions and which technical highlights have helped to reduce fuel consumption.
We hope you enjoy reading it. The 7-speed double-clutch gearbox 0AM is a further development of the very successful direct-shift gearbox 02E from Volkswagen. In terms of comfort and shifting without interrupting drive, it offers the same as the direct-shift gearbox 02E. It has been designed for engines with a torque of up to 250 Nm in the Polo, Golf, Passat and Touran.

Whilst the direct-shift gearbox is on a par with vehicles with manual gearbox in terms of fuel consumption, the double-clutch gearbox has succeeded in reducing fuel consumption below that of manual gearboxes by means of certain technical innovations in the gearbox.

This reduction in fuel consumption makes a significant contribution towards lowering emissions and safeguarding the environment.
