THE six-gear powershift transmission ZF EcoWorld features a reversing function integrated directly in the transmission. Thanks to a new drive system that can be combined with a range of axle ratios, the transmission is suitable for slow speed operation, as well as for long-distance rail vehicles.

EcoWorld is designed for a maximum drive power of 600kW and an input torque of 2500Nm. Equipped with an optional advanced coasting function, the transmission allows additional fuel savings of up to 5%.

ZF’s EcoWorld can also be integrated into existing trains to prolong the vehicle’s service life. Operators benefit from significantly reduced operating costs. Travel comfort is enhanced as there is less noise in the vehicle’s interior due to the improved efficiency and the transmission ratios of the hydromechanical transmission, which allows the compound to rotate at a significantly lower speed.
