GETRAG Dual-Clutch Transmissions

Two transmissions in one

Dual-clutch transmissions consist of two sub-transmissions: while driving in one gear in the active sub-transmission, the system has already preselected the new target gear in the passive sub-transmission. When the software signals a gear change, the clutch of the passive sub-transmission closes while the clutch of the active sub-transmission is opened. As the two clutches overlap, there is no torque interruption.

Compared to conventional automotive transmissions with torque converters, dual-clutch transmissions are about 5 % more economical – and more than 20 % in some driving cycles and vehicles. Low fuel consumption is just one of the benefits: the GETRAG dual-clutch transmissions provide great driving comfort, yet offer a great deal of fun, for example with special functions such as race start.

Driving pleasure without torque interruption

Our dual-clutch transmissions (DCT) guarantee sportiness and driving comfort, with low fuel consumption and therefore low CO2 emissions. The technology allows gear shifting without any torque interruption.
