This was Japan's first automatic transmission with a torque converter and was developed in anticipation of the era of automatic vehicles. It consisted of a shift mechanism using planetary gears and a hydraulic control mechanism to control speed changes. Usually the vehicle drove in the second speed, and the driver shifted manually to the first speed depending on road conditions.
