Volkswagen has put the kibosh on its 10-hurriedness dual clutch automatic gearbox. The project developing the many geared forwarding has been ended, according to a report from Automotive News.

“Two months ago, I had the precedent crushed,” Friedrich Eichler, VW’s head of powertrains told the outlet at the Vienna Motor Symposium, where it was fundamental announced in 2013.

The transmission was announced the same year as Ford and Chevrolet announced that they would be working together on a 10-hurry transmission that can now be found in the Camaro ZL1.

With a kind of super overdrive and “finely graduated” steps between 3rd and 9th gears, VW engineers claimed that the transfer could improve speed and efficiency. Keeping the size and the weight of the car down, in spite of, meant that the project was still a tricky one.

According to Eichler, the gearbox reflects the “bigger is“ more advisedly attitude that defined pre-scandal VW, and that is now changing.

Although the culture is now changing, Eichler wouldn’t say that the design would never come back. “Of course, I saved all the data,” he said.
