can you tell me about the 3 speed transmission with the electronic clutch in the 1971 vw super beetle

Asked by Mar 18, 2007 at 12:06 PM about the 1971 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: General

1 Answer

Don't really know a whole lot about it. I know that the automatic clutch wasn't a hit with drivers. It automatically engages the clutch for the first 3 gears when pressure was put on the shifter. VW didn't keep in the cars for very long. Car and Driver had called it "revolutionary" but it ended up being a dud. Kind of a cool part of automotive history though!
