The company is the first automobile player in the country to introduce iMT technology that offers customers the convenience of two-pedal clutch-less technology combined with fun-to-drive elements of a manual transmission, HMIL said in a statement.
Hyundai's iMT technology eliminates the need for drivers to constantly use the clutch pedal as in a conventional manual transmission, the automaker said.
However, with this technology the driver retains the ability to slot gears manually, thereby delivering enhanced control and retaining the joy of driving, it added.
The iMT technology is being launched on Venue with a one-litre turbo petrol engine which comes mated with a six-speed manual transmission, the auto major said.
"With our future-ready business strategy, we have been continuously striving for customer delight with human-centric technologies... iMT is one such technology that accounts for the pleasure of driving and also the convenience needed to ease the hectic burden of daily commutes," HMIL MD and CEO SS Kim said.
The iMT technology features a transmission gear shift (TGS) lever with intention sensor, hydraulic actuator and transmission control unit (TCU).
