Punch Powertrain´s Dual Clutch Transmission (DT1) was specifically developed for the segment of more compact cars. This efficient and compact 7-speed automatic gearbox is more economical than any other transmission, while at the same time offering excellent driving comfort and smooth performances.
The unique and innovative DCT Transmission DT1 is based on a sophisticated design that is patented by Punch Powertrain: the dual clutch shifts between the 7 gears without interruption. In addition, Punch Powertrain's DT1 costs significantly less, because the number of parts of this transmission has been sharply reduced.
Punch Powertrain's DT1 dual clutch transmission is intended for cars with a limited torque up to 160 Nm. The first gear is optimized for this, resulting in smooth accelerations and strong performances on inclines. The DCT transmission nevertheless delivers a favorable consumption, thanks to a large ratio coverage.
