BMW leaves the two-clutch automatic transmission

At one time, dual-clutch transmissions were the biggest hit, mostly due to the express shifting. Now, however, many manufacturers are introducing classic automatic transmissions, and BMW has announced that it is giving up on dual-clutch transmissions.

Twin-clutch gearboxes were especially popular in the M section (it is also fitted to the sleek M2), but BMW now claims that the classic eight-speed automatic transmission is a better option and will be used in the future.

How it transmits HAK Magazine, at BMW they say the eight-speed transmission has the same performance as the seven-speed dual-clutch, with higher speeds they are closer fitted and the engine is more harmonious, fuel consumption is better and it can be combined with all-wheel drive vehicles. The dual-clutch transmission was only intended for rear-wheel drive vehicles.

BMW plans to invest heavily in electric cars and it no longer pays to work on developing two-clutch transmissions.
