Dou­ble-clutch bonus

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

MIT­SUBISHI Fuso will in­tro­duce a dual-clutch au­to­matic trans­mis­sion to its trucks.

The six-speed ver­sion of the hi-tech gear­box will be known as Duonic.

It is sim­i­lar to the sys­tem now avail­able in Porsches, BMWs, Volk­swa­gens and the Mit­subishi Lancer Ral­liart and EVO.

Duonic uses two clutches to en­sure gearshifts are made quickly by pre­s­e­lect­ing the next gear so it’s ready as soon as the driver de­cides to change cogs.

Duonic can be used as a clutch­less man­ual or left in au­to­matic.

Mit­subishi Fuso says it has in­tro­duced a creep func­tion to al­low easy low-speed move­ment.
