EcoShift for Coaches - more than a manual transmission


      Driving a bus has never been so much fun. Comfortable, economical, safe, and ecological. The modularly designed EcoShift 6-speed transmission model range adds new qualities to the driveline of city buses, intercity buses, and coaches, and ensures maximum flexibility.



-     Manual shifting – light and precise

-     6 gear steps with a large transmission-ratio range

-     Noise optimized

-     Light and compact

-     Lower churning loss thanks to pressure oil lubrication

-     Extension modules: Servoshift, ZF-Intarder, additional cooling system

-     For city buses, intercity buses, and coaches


      EcoShift replaces conventional 6-speed bus transmissions in the torque ranges between 1 000 and 2 100 newton meters. With optional extension modules, such as the new ZF-Intarder for more safety or an additional cooling system for especially demanding operating conditions, transmissions can be tailor-made for each application specification. Compared to previous manual transmissions, EcoShift boasts increased efficiency and operating comfort.

      The pressure oil lubrication with flat oil sump reduces gear resistance, while the simple, smooth, and precise shifting provides for relaxed driving. Passengers and the environment profit in equal measure from the reduced noise emissions.

      As the first manual transmission series for buses and coaches, the EcoShift transmission family can be universally equipped with the Servoshift shift support system.
