    Honda CEO is against implementing fake manual transmission in EVs

    Just came across this:

    https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a4...ansmission-ev/

    Unlike rival Toyota, Honda is against the idea of fake, or simulated, manual transmissions for its upcoming EV lineup, even though it will include two sports-car models.
    Thought some might find this an interesting read.

    Quoting someone else - "Simply put, the majority of EVs do not have multi-speed transmissions. Instead, a single-speed transmission regulates the electric motor."

    I have never bought a non-manual vehicle, but I even think adding a manual transmission to an EV would be silly!

    I was hoping for a manual comeback/return some day!
