Upcoming Car Launches with AMT Auto Gear Shift in India in 2020. Know what is Auto Gear Shift Technology and how is different with Automatic Cars

 

AMT - Auto Gear Shift

Wondering what is AMT or Auto Gear Shift Technology ?

In Manual Transmission cars - the driver changes gears by pressing clutch - basis the speed acceleration of the vehicle. But AMT is bit different - Its a technological device which takes over the car transmission system - by performing clutch movement and gear shift automatically through its inbuilt Electro-Hydraulic Shift Mechanism.

One does not need a clutch pedal in AMT Cars. The sensors, processors and actuators in the Electro Hydraulic Module in AMT device automatically :-

  • Open & Close the Clutch
  • Performs Gear Shifts

Even it takes over Transmission System to choose - Manual or Automatic Mode as per convenience of driver.

Thus - The Technological Advancement takes over the clutch operation to do Automatically with much more finesse and perfection without any manual intervention. Been the gear change is done at ideal speed - one can expect AMT Cars to be performing well on fuel efficiency and mileage.

 

How is AMT Car Different from Automatic ?

Unlike Conventional Automatic which has

» Torque Converter which through its transmission fluid transfers power to the engine motor to control Engine Speed

» No Clutch Mechanism. 

In AMT Cars its like Manual Transmission and has Clutch Plate but without clutch pedal, as the AMT Device manages clutch and gear shift movement Automatically (without manual intervention) 

Auto Gear Shift

AMT Positive: The Biggest Positive of AMT is Budget Friendly Technology and delivers almost equally good response in City Ride Condition. In Traffic - one is at at absolute ease with Creep Function and ability to crawl with Top notch convenience. Especially at slow speed in traffic - You would actually feel in no difference in AMT and Automatic - where most of the drive is in City Traffic

AMT Negative : AMT is not as smooth or as refined as what drive feel in conventional Automatic Car is. There is slight Jerk and Pause effect which is felt when AMT Device changes the gears

I am willing to upgrade from Hyundai i20 Petrol to an AMT car. I went to test drive Maruti Dzire ZDI+ AMT and Vitara Brezza ZDI+. I didn't like the Dzire because of its poor build quality if compared with my i20. I think the Vitara Brezza is better built and equipped. BUT it doesn't come with AMT. Some websites say that Maruti Suzuki is going to launch AMT with Vitara Brezza in the festive season 2017, but sales guys of Maruti showroom do not confirm the same. Please confirm when Maruti Suzuki is going to launch diesel AMT in Vitara Brezza.

Question this?

However - Some Manufacturers may not Invest in AMT - Hyundai India, Honda Cars, Volkswagen, Ford India, Toyota Kirloskar, Chevrolet India - rather seems more convinced with Automatic / CVT Transmission and seems building resource in same instead of economical AMT Auto Gear Shift.

AMTs are fuel efficient. Global car manufacturers WILL NOT go that route to upset the vested Oil interests. Look up EV1 and GM motors conspiracy to kill the electric car. Kuddos to Indian car makers that embrace AMT and fuel efficiency
