[Transmission article] MT = manual transmission
The full name of the English name of MT is manual transmission. Chinese means manual transmission, also called manual transmission. That is to say, by shifting the shift lever by hand, the gear meshing position in the transmission can be changed, and the transmission ratio can be changed, thereby achieving the purpose of shifting. When the clutch is pressed, the shift lever can be adjusted. If the driver's skill is good, the car with the manual transmission is faster than the automatic transmission when it is accelerating and overtaking, and it is also fuel efficient. The MT gearbox is currently the most widely used transmission. In the future, the trend of manual transmissions is to continuously increase the gears so that the torque and speed of the engine can better match the complex working conditions of the car.
As people's requirements for vehicle driving simplification continue to increase, especially the Chinese people hope to simplify the operation of the car, the market of manual transmissions will certainly be affected by the four gearboxes of AT, CVT, DCT and AMT. Some experts predict that the market share of manual transmissions will drop from 74% in 2007 to 67%. However, due to the high mechanical reliability, simple structure and good power, the manual transmission of the MT manual transmission is an important part of the transmission.
