It is expected that the L1 model will be the first car with large volumes of production, which will offer a 10-step “automatic”. It is based on the eight-family developments transmissions Hydra-Matic, which were offered for the sixth-generation of Camaro models with black 2000 Chevy Silverado headlights, providing a higher level of power, excellence and efficiency.
