The New Standard in Fuel Efficiency, Safety, and Driver Comfort

Volvo I-Shift is a 12-speed, two-pedal, lightweight automated manual transmission (AMT) that delivers an exceptional level of productivity by simultaneously maximizing driver comfort, safety, payload capacity and fuel efficiency.

Using microprocessor technology, I-Shift continuously monitors changes in grade, vehicle speed, acceleration, torque demand, weight and air resistance. With the engine and transmission in constant communication, there's no compromising. I-Shift automatically selects the best gear for the engine, allowing every driver to shift like a fuel-efficiency expert. This puts less stress on the driveline, for longer life and less maintenance.

Volvo I-Shift has become the new transmission standard in terms of fuel efficiency, safety and ease of operation. It helps fleets attract and keep good drivers, and makes good drivers even better. All to drive success for your business. A transmission with intelligence. The I-Shift transmission management system employs a next generation microprocessor to deliver “intelligent” features that improve drivability, safety and fuel efficiency.
