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.
