I-Shift means reduced fatigue, and focus on the road and the traffic

Just drive

I-Shift makes driving safer and much more comfortable. There’s no heavy clutch pedal. No lever to wrestle. And every gear change is perfectly timed. The simplicity of the system reduces fatigue, and helps you focus on the road and the traffic around you.  

I-Shift can save you fuel

Save on fuel

I-Shift is designed to save fuel. The internal energy losses are low – lower than on manual gearboxes. But it’s the electronics that really make the difference. If you drive in Economy mode, every gear change is timed precisely, ensuring the engine works at the most efficient rpm.

I-Shift communicates with the engine

How it works

I-Shift is based on an unsynchronised manual gearbox – hence the compact design and low internal losses. The magic, however, happens in the electronic control unit that manages the clutch and shifts. By evaluating information about speed, weight, road grade and torque demand, it performs every shift with extreme precision. The system also communicates with the engine, allowing it to adjust revs and brake-effect for maximum performance.
