Hyundai will release Veloster N 8 DCT in AprilFebruary 28, 2020
Hyundai will unveil its 8-speed DCT Veloster N transmission in April. The 8-speed DCT Veloster N will tentatively appear as a replacement for the model year in South Korea instead of the recently discontinued Veloster N.
Veloster N is a high-performance Veloster (JS) model released in June 2018. N-Performance Veloster delivers a maximum output of 250 hp. using a 2.0-liter gasoline turbo engine. The output is increased to 275 hp, and the assembly itself includes Pirelli P ZERO tires, 19-inch wheels, an N-shaped threaded differential (eLSD).
The dual-clutch gearbox applied to the 8-speed DCT Veloster N is an 8-speed DCT, which differs from Hyundai Motor’s 7-speed DCT, which is capable of responding to powerful motorbikes, and provides 30% faster response and increased efficiency.
Unlike the old Hyundai DCT transmission, the wet clutch method and hydraulic drive are used, so the allowable torque is higher than that of a dry clutch. It also reduces power losses by minimizing friction and oil losses in hydraulic systems. The energy transfer efficiency is 93.8%.
