Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) on Friday said it has introduced intelligent manual transmission (iMT) in the country with its compact SUV Venue becoming the first model to receive the technology.
The company is the first automobile player in the country to introduce iMT technology that offers customers convenience of two-pedal clutch-less technology combined with fun-to-drive elements of a manual transmission, HMIL said in a statement.
Transmission Control Unit gets signal from TGS Lever Intention Sensor, showing drivers want to switch gears. TCU imparts sign to connect with Hydraulic Actuator shaping Hydraulic Pressure. Water driven Pressure is then sent to Concentric Slave Cylinder (CSC) through Clutch Tube. Concentric Slave Cylinder utilizes this strain to control the grasp and weight plate, along these lines connecting with and separating the grip. Driver can flawlessly change gears without the need to precisely work grasp pedal.
Hyundai’s iMT innovation is basically a progressive 2-pedal framework that disposes of the requirement for drivers to continually utilize the grasp pedal as in a traditional manual transmission. Be that as it may, with this innovation the driver holds the capacity to space equips physically, in this manner conveying improved control and holding the delight of driving.
The iMT technology is being launched on Venue with one-litre turbo petrol engine which comes mated with six speed manual transmission, the auto major said.
“With our future ready business strategy, we have been continuously striving for customer delight with human centric technologies…iMT is one such technology that accounts for pleasure of driving and also the convenience needed to ease the hectic burden of daily commutes,” HMIL MD and CEO SS Kim said.
