Every week Nissan keeps revealing new and exciting details about the next-generation Nissan LEAF, to be unveiled in Japan on September 6. We’ve just learned about a revolutionary system called e-Pedal that promises to transform the way we drive.
With the flip of a switch, the technology turns your accelerator into an e-Pedal, allowing drivers to accelerate, decelerate and stop using just the e-Pedal. It’s the world's first one-pedal operation that allows drivers to bring the car to a complete stop even on hills, stay in position, and resume driving instantly.
Drivers can cover 90% of their driving needs with the e-Pedal, Nissan claims, making the process of driving more relaxing. In heavy traffic and during city commutes, drivers will indeed greatly reduce the need to shift from one pedal to the other.
