Now, to keep the ball rolling and to up the ante, Hyundai has launched the Venue iMT. iMT stands for Intelligent Manual transmission. The 6-Speed iMT gear box is available with the Kappa 1L T-GDi Petrol BS6 engine. In addition, Hyundai has also launched the Sport Trim in the Venue.

Eh? Clutch Pedal free Manual Transmission? Tell me more.

The technology behind the “clutch pedal free” manual transmission is the use of electro-mechanically actuated clutch. The three key components make up the iMT are

  • Transmission Gear Shift (TGS) Lever with Intention Sensor
  • Hydraulic Actuator
  • 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. With this setup, the driver is able to seamlessly shift gears without the need to mechanically operate clutch pedal.

  • 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.
