Nissan’s upcoming next-gen Leaf will introduce a new feature called the e-Pedal, which will allow for a single pedal to be used for acceleration and braking, allowing people to drive with just one pedal. Just like driving a bumper car.
Nissan’s PR department explains: “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*. 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, stay in position, and resume driving instantly. … In heavy traffic and during city commutes, drivers will greatly reduce the need to shift from one pedal to the other, making your drive simpler and more engaging.”
