Hyundai Unveils the New Veloster N with 8-Speed DCT
SEOUL, April 20, 2020 – Hyundai Motor Company today unveiled the newly enhanced Veloster N. Equipped with the all-new N 8-speed wet dual-clutch transmission (N DCT), the 2020 Veloster N is designed and engineered to deliver exhilarating driving fun.
Hyundai developed the N DCT to provide the engaging experience of a manual transmission with the convenience of an automatic transmission. With the N DCT, the new Veloster N can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 5.6 seconds.
N DCT is equipped with electronic actuators that operate the double clutch, providing ride comfort, fuel efficiency and most importantly, driving fun. Unlike a dry double-clutch transmission, the wet N DCT uses oil to significantly improve lubrication and cooling performance, which is typical of higher torque applications.
N Grin Shift (NGS) increases torque by 7 percent from 36.0 to 38.5kgf-m by allowing turbocharger overboost and maximizes transmission response for 20 seconds – performance that is certain to induce “driver grin”.
