ENGINE & PERFORMANCE
Hyundai is upping the ante, offering the revolutionary new clutch pedal free iMT technology on its rip-roaring Kappa 1.0 l T-GDi Petrol BS6 engine mated to 6-Speed Manual Transmission that features an electromechanically actuated clutch.
With the new launch, Hyundai is offering customers a clutch pedal free drive but with manual gear shift control for a thrilling Drive Experience that employs just the right facets of power packed performance on a Manual Transmission with the Seamless Comfort of a 2-Pedal Transmission.
FUNCTIONING OF INTELLIGENT MANUAL TRANSMISSION (iMT)
Hyundai’s iMT technology features a Transmission Gear Shift (TGS) Lever with Intention Sensor, Hydraulic Actuator and Transmission Control Unit (TCU). The system has been designed to offer a seamless Drive Experience by incorporating a cohesive logic between the various components on manual transmissions:
Transmission Control Unit receives signal from TGS Lever Intention Sensor, indicating driver’s desire to change gears.
TCU sends signal to engage Hydraulic Actuator forming Hydraulic Pressure.
Hydraulic Pressure is then sent to Concentric Slave Cylinder (CSC) through Clutch Tube.
Concentric Slave Cylinder uses this pressure to control the clutch and pressure plate, thereby engaging and disengaging the clutch.
Driver is able to seamlessly shift gears without the need to mechanically operate clutch pedal.
