Normally, I think that we have only two types of gear which are Manual Transmission (MT) and Automatic Transmission (AT). However, technology always change every time.
In market city car in Thailand, I sew a lot of things are changing if compare with my two old cars that I know and different styles in driving. We can find 4 type such as MT, AT, CVT and DCT.
MT and AT are general transmission on the road. In MT, changing gear by putting clutch. On the other hand, AT just down force and gear will changing automatic. CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission which is many band cars are using it and CVT no gear for changing but it will changing synchronously torque come from engine. When you use CVT car, you cannot quickly accelerate your car. If you do this, it will kill your gearbox. Finally, the next generation of Manual Transmission is Dual-Clutch Transmission. DCT changes gear by ECU and use two clutch for switch gears (1,3,5 and 2,4,6).
