Polaris is the future of three-wheeled vehicles. The Polaris Slingshot had to redesign their 2020 model. This is because there has been an additional automative manual transmission, that could be seen to broaden the appeal of the vehicle. This is beyond stick-shift savvy. AutoDrive, as is called the automatic gearbox. There are now accounts of of 80% of zSLingshot sales, showing that this work of art is a thing of beauty. The 2020 models didn’t really have the transmission that could shift on it’s own. So surely, the mnaual-shifting capability isnt exactly what you ned in spirited driving.
Polaris has AutoDrive
Autodrive is an option a $1700 one in act. The Slingshot S and SL models had a $2000 upcharge. It still works really well at a part-throttle pace.
Polaris doesn’t do good when shiting times, but it certainly is better than a Smart ForTwo as well as a Ferrari F430.
There do happen to be downshifts. But it could also be an illusion. It’s the pull on the blip. It’s the lower gear that says you might not get another shifft. And it’s when the Polaris Slingshot obeys your shift commands that you’re in danger of downshifting way into the red zone.
Shift is also “not allowed” when you’re in fifth gear and try to upshift towards sixth. That’s the benefit of an engine with the strongest overdrive ratio that you ever might see. Polaris for starters have a Slingshot. It was a delight to know that a three-wheeler came in with about 2000 rpm powering it at the get-go. So certainly, this type of godspeed was uncanny until Polaris came along and proved us all wrong. It comes in hot at 1663 pounds and the gearbox is certainly hefty enough to deliver you and the partner-in-crime enough efficiency for a smooth getaway. Isn’t that so convenient?
