Volkswagen has proved that it's dropped its programs of introducing a-10-speed dual clutch transmission.
While talking with Automotive News at the Global Vienna Generator Symposium of April, VW powertrain key Friedrich Eichler confirmed the gearbox was lowered.
“Two months ago, I had the prototype crushed,” he said.The automaker initially intended on starting the transmission for high torque machines and reported its strategy in the 2013 Vienna Symposium, exactly the same site where Honda and General Motors proved their collaboration to co-build 10 and nine -speed signals. GM and Ford are nine-speed debuted this past year inside the 10 and also the new Chevrolet Malibu -speed was lowered to the Camaro ZL1 and Ford f 150 Raptor.
Why the task was scrapped Eichler failed to give a reason but claimed it was dreamt up during the outdated “bigger of the company's is better” design philosophy.
As the gearbox is off the cards for your moment Eichler did not eliminate the possibility of it returning in the foreseeable future.
