Nissan has announced that the new Nissan LEAF will be equipped with a new tech called ‘e-Pedal’. With the flip of a switch, this piece of technology turns your accelerator into an e-Pedal which allows drivers to accelerate, decelerate and stop the car using just the e-Pedal. Nissan expects this revolutionary technology to transform the way we drive, and based on our own first impression, we can’t think otherwise.
The e-Pedal technology is the world's first one-pedal operation that allows drivers to bring the car to a complete stop (even on hills), hold the vehicle in position, and resume driving instantly. Nissan claims that in heavy traffic and regular city commutes, drivers will appreciate the use of a single pedal which makes driving simpler.
The e-Pedal technology represents another key milestone in Nissan's commitment to bring accessible, advanced driver assistance technologies to the mainstream. The development of such technologies is in-line with the ‘Nissan Intelligent Mobility’, the brand's blueprint for changing the way cars are driven, powered and integrated into the society.
