• Lexus is working on a manual transmission for electric vehicles.
• The gearbox is being tested on the Lexus Electrified Sport concept, which could well replace the defunct LFA.
• The authentic feel transmitted by the gearbox would be very advanced and could even cause the car to stall.
The number of new vehicle models equipped with manual transmissions continues its long decline. On the one hand, consumers are less interested, but manufacturers have less and less incentive to push them. They are often offered only with base-model versions that feature less equipment and are less popular with consumers.
