Manual transmission cars will soon go down in history



According to Automotive News Canada, the mandatory implementation of modern active safety systems in cars will lead to the disappearance of new vehicles with manual transmissions (manual transmissions).

This is because the automatic braking system and a number of other safety features do not work with manual transmissions. The timing of the disappearance of new cars with manual transmissions depends on how quickly countries will require automakers to implement mandatory automatic emergency braking (AEB) systems.

According to IHS Markit and the ZF Group, sales of manual transmission models in the global market have dropped to 17.1% over the past year. In the North American market, only 1.2% of new vehicles are equipped with manual transmissions. Even electric cars in the United States are already outperforming cars with “mechanics” in sales.

Mazda Canada reported that 19.2% of vehicles sold were equipped with a manual transmission in 2016, but that the number dropped to 6.4% in 2020.

That being said, Subaru Canada reports that demand for manual sports cars such as the WRX / STI and BRZ has been growing over the past four years.
