This will offer customers the convenience of two-pedal clutch-less technology

Hyundai Motor India (HMIL) on Friday announced India debut of intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT) on its Venue compact sports utility vehicle.

This will be another industry first innovation that will offer customers the convenience of two-pedal clutch-less technology combined with 'fun-to-drive' elements of a manual transmission, the company said.

The company will launch this new variant of the Venue later this month on Kappa 1-litre T-GDi Petrol (BS6) engine with Six-Speed Manual Transmission. Prices will be announced at the time of the launch, it said.


Hyundai’s iMT technology is essentially a revolutionary two-pedal system that eliminates the need for drivers to constantly use the clutch pedal as in a conventional manual transmission.

However, with this technology the driver retains the ability to slot gears manually, thereby delivering enhanced control and retaining the joy of driving.

“Hyundai has been driving the adoption of new and innovative technologies at scale. With our ‘Future Ready’ business strategy, we have been continuously striving for customer delight with human centric technologies that present our innate understanding of what our customers’ desire. iMT is one such technology that accounts for pleasure of driving and also the convenience needed to ease the hectic burden of daily commuters," SS Kim, Managing Ditector and Chief Executive Officer, HMIL, said.

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.
