Fiat Powertrain Technologies will have a capacity of 800,000 units of the new C635 transmissions by 2010. Unlike the first-generation DSG gearboxes from Volkswagen which use wet clutches, the Fiat transmission uses dry clutch plates. The dry clutch version is less expensive to manufacture and more efficient. Fiat is planning to install the new transmissions in the small to mid-size cars like the Punto and Bravo, and similar Lancia and Alfa Romeo models.
