Deliveries begin of 6-speed manual transmission for RX-8,Mazda Motor Corporation

Aisin AI Co., Ltd. (Head office: Nishio City, Aichi; President: Masahiro Suo) has begun delivery of its 6-speed manual transmissions (RWD type) to Mazda Motor Corporation. The transmissions will equip Mazda's recently announced new model sports car RX-8. We first began supplying Mazda in December of 1997 with a 6-speed manual transmission (RWD type) that was used in the company's Roadster model. Sales for the RX-8 model are expected to reach 3 billion yen in the first year of the order.

This light and compact 6-speed manual transmission, developed with much improved shift feeling, makes an ideal match for the vehicle's new high-rev, high-torque rotary engine.
