Founded in Shanghai in 2001, Volkswagen Transmission Shanghai (VWTS) mainly focused on the automobile transmission products with a registered capital of $47 million. Volkswagen’s investment arm, VGC Investment, was the firm’s largest shareholder, holding 60%.
It launched several transmission products these years, including the MQ200 horizontal manual transmission in the early stages, matching with a wide range of engines from A00 to A-class models, such as VW Touran, Octavia, and Fabia. In 2004, it launched a new MQ200 product - the MQ200GA transmission, which was supplied to the VW Touran and a cargo van model of FAW-VW.
