CVTs released in 1987 featured smooth acceleration and improved fuel efficiency. From the late 1990s, various advances were made. As a result, CVTs were applied to various models (2-liter front engine front wheel drive vehicles), toroidal CVTs (large displacement front engine rear wheel drive vehicles) were put into practical use, and improvements were made that allowed CVTs to be applied to large displacement engines (3.5-liter front engine front wheel drive vehicles). In addition, crucial metal belts began to be manufactured in-house.

Nissan’s newly developed Extronic CVT-M6 is a manual mode 6-speed transmission. It is a large capacity belt CVT developed for large displacement front engine front wheel drive vehicles. It achieves smooth acceleration and improved fuel efficiency by expanding the gear range width and the lock-up range.
