All vehicles have shifters to shift the transmission be it a manual, a double clutch, or automatic.
If you are of a certain age you surely remember the ubiquitous "column shift" usually to shift a 3 speed manual transmission. At that time hot rodders were on a mission to put the column shift out of its miseries permanently. It took years to put the column shift in the "dumpster".
You probably also remember push starting cars at one time.
For a moment focus that we humans have not really changed in a couple of thousand years. While some things are more intuitive than others.
Allowed for a full width front bench seat. The throw from 1st to 2nd was the habitual challenge, while linkages would bind if you were too aggressive.
In most applications dramatically shorter linkages, and throws although on a 4 speed the 2nd to 3rd was still a bit of a challenge. But to this day you can slam shifts aggressively.
Great for a racing application, amusing on the street. Usually used with an automatic or double clutch transmission.
Do you remember the push button shifter on Chrysler cars a few decades back.
There are all sorts of shifters, column, floor, paddle, buttons, wheels, its a fascinating variety of ways to primarily select gears for usually an automatic transmission. You usually need to look somewhere on the dash to ascertain what gear the vehicle is in...think about this for a moment.
At Strada we perhaps are old school...we prefer a floor shift, we believe that its the most intuitive way to select gears on any vehicle be it an automatic or manual transmission.
