DescriptionNew Nissan: Leaf to offer unique e-Pedal control.Nissan has continued to dribble features before the release of the next Leaf, revealing today that the next-generation electric vehicle will have a so-called electronic pedal that can be used to accelerate, slow down and reach a complete stop. The single pedal operation is a feature built into a series of electric vehicles as a way to simplify driving and recover lost energy during deceleration. This regenerative braking approach can be seen in cars like the BMW i3 and Chevy Bolt, but according to Nissan, the next sheet will take things a little longer.The company says it will be the first car in the world that allows drivers to reach a stalemate in the hills, hold the position, and then re-drive again with a single pedal. The electronic pedal will be activated by a switch that converts the accelerator, otherwise normal, to a pedal to govern them all. Removing the pedal reduces the speed of the car, while the release stops and maintains its position even on a slope. Nissan says users will be able to handle 90 percent of their driving with the e-Pedal.
