What's new at DZP?
Toyota Motor Manufacturing Poland will start manufacturing another electronic continuously variable transmission (e-CVT) for low-emission hybrid systems, which will work with a 1.5l engine. This projects supplements and extends the manufacture of an e-CVT working with a 1.8l engine, started in November 2018. As a result, Toyota’s factory will double the production of electric hybrid transmissions in 2021. Together with other currently implemented modern engine development projects (TNGA – Toyota New Global Architecture), investments at both TMMP plants (in Wałbrzych and Jelcz-Laskowice) will be increased to almost PLN 5 billion.
The new e-CVT will work with a state-of-the-art 1.5l engine designed based on Toyota’s global design platform TNGA. The e-CVT is at the heart of Toyota’s low-emission hybrid system. The interaction of two electric motors that are an integral part of the e-CVT with a gasoline engine ensures an optimum energy flow within the hybrid electric vehicle (HEV).
We have been advising Toyota from the start of the investment process. The project is handled at DZP by Marcin Krakowiak, Partner and Head of Infrastructure and Energy Practice, Anna Glapa, Partner and Aneta Włoszek, Senior Associate.
DZP has been legal adviser to Toyota on all aspects of its business, including corporate and labour law, for many years now. DZP also supports Toyota in state aid, particularly as regards operations in SEZ and obtaining other forms of support for investment projects.
TMMP has two factories in Lower Silesia. The factory in Wałbrzych manufactures e-CVTs for low-emission hybrid cars working with a 1.8l engine, 1l gasoline engines as well as manual and semi-automatic transmissions. The factory in Jelcz-Laskowice manufactures 1.5l petrol engines and also 1.4l and 2.2l diesel engines. After the production lines for the new 2.0l and 1.5 l engines designed in the TNGA technology are launched, the production capacity of the factory will be 309 thousand powertrain units annually. TMMP factories supply car assembly plants of Toyota, PSA Group and Lotus run by European companies in the Czech Republic, UK, France, Turkey and Russia and outside Europe, in South Africa and Japan.
