BorgWarner has just opened up a second plant at their facility in Amstadt, Germany to produce dual clutch transmission modules. BorgWarner and other suppliers like Getrag have been experiencing huge growth in demand for dual clutch transmissions as demand for increased fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions drives adoption. BorgWarner is the supplier of dual clutch systems to Volkswagen Group for their DSG transmissions. VW recently sold their one millionth DSG-equipped vehicle. By the time all of BorgWarner's currently announced programs reach full production they expect to be producing 2.3 million units a year. The dual clutch transmissions can provide a 10-15 percent improvement in efficiency compared to a conventional automatic.
