KUALA LUMPUR: Big news coming from Chinese automaker Geely. Starting with the one that concerns us the most - second-generation DCT dual-clutch gearbox. The Malaysian market is aware of the Geely's famous or rather world-famous DCT dual-clutch gearbox as the units feature in two of Proton's gems - the X70 and X50. Also, the DCT gearbox has been affiliated with 'The Ten Best Gearboxes In The World' award twice, in 2018 and 2019.

Furthermore, the DCT gearbox in three-years of its existence has made a lasting impression with more than one million units produced and 30,000 exported to the European market. What makes the ongoing DCT gearbox so special? Well, it is tuned with great technologies like Geely's electronic shift technology and electronic cooling oil pump. It ensures shift stability & efficiency and also reduces gearbox overheating.
