ZF has been recognized for being the “Best Brand – Commercial Vehicle Transmissions”. That is the verdict of almost 6,000 readers who voted ZF as a winner in the ETM Awards 2022. 

Sponsored by publisher ETM, the annual readers’ poll is widely recognized across the commercial vehicle industry as a strong barometer of a company’s image and its product quality. 

Speaking ahead of accepting ZF’s award at the ceremony in Berlin on 1 June, Winfried Gründler, responsible for Driveline Systems with ZF’s Commercial Vehicle Solutions division, said, “The remarkable success of ZF’s advanced transmission products, powerfully reflects the trust of vehicle manufacturers, fleet operators, and drivers alike. This prestigious award is testament to our relentless innovation to develop ever more efficient and robust driveline technology.

Once again, ZF owes its latest victory to its innovative Commercial Vehicle Transmission products. With over half of the vote (51%) ZF, retained its Best Brand title in the “Commercial Vehicle Transmissions” category. 

ZF’s multi-award winning TraXon automatic transmission system continued to be a decisive factor in the Group’s unbroken record at the ETM Awards. The Group recently announced that half a million TraXon systems had been manufactured in Friedrichshafen alone since production began there in 2014. With proven durability, performance and fuel-efficiency, TraXon is equipped with several transmission functions, including ZF’s powerful PreVision GPS predictive shift strategy. For passenger transport, ZF’s EcoLife automatic transmission supports all daily city bus operations while its second generation EcoLife Coachline transmission has been specifically designed for coaches.
