Reducing the workload without removing driver control – the Telligent® automatic gearshift

Telligent® automated gearshift

The optional Telligent® automated gearshift system for the Atego lessens the driver’s workload yet still lets the driver have the final say. On the one hand, gear changes are made without the driver having to operate the clutch, taking the hard work out of hill starts, manoeuvring in tight spaces and reversing. On the other hand, the driver is still free to take control of gear selection at any time. Precise shifting is not just kind to the transmission; it is by no means unheard of for drivers to cut their fuel consumption courtesy of the Telligent® automated gearshift.
