Production Unit for the new MCP Automated Gearbox opens at Valenciennes

Jean-Martin Folz, CEO of PSA Peugeot CitroŽn, has today opened a new production unit at the Valenciennes plant dedicated to the manufacture of a new technologically advanced six-speed electronically controlled automated gearbox called MCP.

With a capacity of over 800,000 gearboxes a year, the new production unit secures the Valenciennes plantís 2,200 jobs, strengthening PSA Peugeot CitroŽnís position as the regionís leading employer. Standards of product quality, working conditions, ergonomics and environmental protection at the state-of-the-art factory will be amongst the highest in the Group.

Total investment in the production of the new gearbox amounts to Ä290 million for capital equipment and Ä140 million for research and development.

The new gearbox is built on a six-speed mechanical base and offers the driver a choice of either automatic or manual modes. The electronic control of the clutch and gear-shift improves vehicle performance and driveability whilst significantly reducing fuel consumption.

The new MCP compact automated gearbox will be progressively introduced into Peugeot and CitroŽn mid-range petrol and diesel-powered models.

Looking at the models it's planned for, I am not sure if it can handle any high power applications
