Tiptronic is a function of manual gear shifting in automatic transmissions installed on Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, SEAT, Škoda cars and some Peugeot models. A transmission with manual shifting was released in 1989: the ZF 4HP22 4-speed automatic transmission, installed on Porsche 911, was the first to get a Tiptronic function.
Tiptronic design and operating principle
Tiptronic transmission is based on an automatic gearbox of shaftless design with a torque converter and planetary gears, and a function of electronic control and ability to lock the torque converter in all modes. In order to switch to manual, you need to move the gearbox lever into a special slot, and then, by moving it forward or backwards, select a certain gear. Movement of the lever activates a special program according to which the ECU engages a certain gear.
