Toyota has detailed a new powertrain that it says will reduce C02 emissions in its vehicles by more than 18 percent.

The Japanese automaker says it’s developed a new CVT transmission, a new six-speed manualtransmission, a 2.0-liter engine, a hybrid system that pairs with the 2.0-liter and a new four-wheel drive system, all of which are compatible with the Toyota New Global Architecture that underpins the CH-R and Corolla, among more. The CVT, for starters, includes a ‘launch gear’ that improves efficiency at low speeds, and also offers a 15% larger spread between ratios. Shift speed also improves by 20% over Toyota’s outgoing CVT. The six-speed manual transmission, meanwhile, is described as lightweight, compact and features a dedicated synchronizer for the reverse gear.

It would be nice to see some level of improvement. I have a 2011 Camry hybrid, which drives like a city bus compared to my 2006 Accord LX 4 cyl. Southern California is not flat, so you need torque to climb hills or accelerate away from stop lights. That Accord accelerates like a scared cat; whereas with the Camry hybrid, the advertised torque is never available.
