It's a two speed automatic transmission. The first gear is lower for good pickup, and when the engine reaches it's shift point it automatically goes into a gear ratio that is the same as a single speed. The only advantage the two speed had was better acceleration, it's tradeoff was that it was more complex than a single speed hence more prone to breakdown.
