20 Years Of Volvo’s I-Shift

THE ARRIVAL of Volvo’s I-Shift intelligent automated manual transmission (AMT) continues to be an important milestone in the truck manufacturing industry.
By the end of 2020, more than one million Volvo trucks around the world had been sold with I-Shift. And, as the company marks the AMT’s 20th anniversary, this breakthrough powertrain technology is still being developed for future gains.
When I-Shift was first launched in 2001, Volvo confirmed its strong belief in a clutch based transmission system as the most efficient design for automatic gear changing. Today, all Volvo FH, FH16, FM and FMX trucks are fitted with I-Shift as standard.
I-Shift was and still is a major game-changer, now selling all over the world.
It’s synchronisation is what sets I-Shift apart and makes it so versatile, the positive result of many years of hard work by engineers.
I-Shift’s success lies in its ability to work with the entire powertrain, with continuous improvements over the years, the system has been developed to meet the demands of a wide range of transport applications, said Volvo.
