Hyundai Motor India Limited has announced the introduction of a new type of transmission in our market called IMT, which refers to intelligent manual transmission. Basically, it’s somewhat akin to a semi-automatic transmission that eliminates the need for the driver to physically operate the clutch pedal, leaving it alone to control the throttles and brakes. While the vehicle is moving the clutch, IMT allows the driver to use the shift lever in the same way that it does in the manual transmission vehicle, which Hyundai says helps retain the pleasant nature of driving from a vehicle. manual transport.

Hyundai Venue IMT version

Hyundai Venue will be the first automaker in India to have a 2-pedal IMT or a smart manual transmission.

This new IMT will debut with the Hyundai Venue 1.0 (T-GDi) turbocharged variant with a 6-speed manual transmission. Hyundai confirmed that the launch would take place this month. In summary, the IMT features a shift lever with an “intention sensor”, “hydraulic motor” and transmission control unit (TCU). The driver’s desire to change gears is transmitted to the TCU through an intention sensor, which in turn indicates the hydraulic motor. Hydraulic pressure is transferred to the CSC through the clutch tube. CSC uses this pressure to control the clutch and pressure plate, causing clutch activation release.

Hyundai Venue will launch with IMT in India this month.

This type of transmission should be more cost-effective than conventional torque converter gearboxes or, in the case of Venue 1.0 Turbo petrol, the dual-clutch transmission (DCT). With that in mind, the Hyundai Venue 1.0 IMT will be seven times cheaper than the DCT variable. Currently, the Venue 1.0 petrol variant of Hyundai Venue sells for Rs 8.46 to 11.51 lakh (former showroom, New Delhi).
