It is belt driven as stated above but there are several inputs and feedbacks to help control the temperature.... Ambient temperature sensor, a photo vetolic (sp) switch to measure the sunlight coming through the windshield etc... They all input to the computer so it can calculate and determine the best settings to achieve the selected temperature.... Also remember when you change TWO or more settings it goes into a manual mode.... Its sort of like saying f u man figure it out yourself...
