Why do people say that ESCOT-V has better fuel consumption than a manual transmission?
ESCOT-V has better fuel efficiency than manual transmission!
A 12-speed transmission is the most effective combination for fuel consumption when utilizing the highest efficiency in engine speed (the sweet spot), but operating a 12-speed manually is extremely complicated. That's why ESCOT-V supports this automatically. Additionally, ESCOT-V enables driving with even greater fuel efficiency through fuel consumption assist functions such as "ESCOT Roll" and "Economy E/D Mode".
ESCOT-V makes excellent use of the sweet spot with a 12-speed transmission
