If you presumed a 10-speed transmission had as numerous gears as any vehicle could possibly need, then there’s a problem. Honda has submitted a patent for a transmission that has 11 gears. And it does not stop there. This new transmission likewise has three clutches. You know, since why wouldn’t you require an 11-speed triple-clutch transmission?

Discovered by AutoGuide, the Japanese patent explains how the third clutch will be utilized to decrease the drop in torque that you receive with a dual-clutch transmission. In theory, that would likewise suggest faster gear modifications. And with 11 gears, the engine would probably be better-able to obtain enhanced fuel economy, too.

However what’s unclear is where (or if) Honda will utilize this new transmission. The focus on improving gas mileage might lend itself to everything from an economy automobile like the Fit to a bigger car in requirement of an MPG increase like the Pilot. Or it might find its way into the whole Honda lineup.

Let’s wait for more information, possibly till its finally produced.
