The primary benefit for it, like the upper gears in modern transmissions, is for extending range and increasing top speed. Even so, I seriously doubt anyone will develop a manual transmission for an EV.

More likely it will follow what the Taycan uses. Even if manual, is a two-speed gearbox really more "engaging"?

Visit my Owner's Journal where I wax philosophic on all things FR-S
