New Nissan LEAF to offer single pedal driving via the new e-Pedal

Nissan announced today that the widely anticipated new Nissan LEAF electric car will come with e-Pedal, transforming the way it will drive and enabling single pedal driving like in the BMW i3.

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 single pedal.

The e-Pedal allows drivers to bring the car to a complete stop even on hills, stay in position, and resume driving instantly.

Nissan claims the technology will enable drivers can cover 90% of their driving needs with the e-Pedal, making the process of driving more exciting. 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.

The e-Pedal technology represents another key milestone in Nissan’s ongoing commitment to bring accessible, advanced driver assistance technologies to the mainstream. The new Nissan LEAF will come equipped with Nissan’s ProPILOT autonomous driving tech enabling partial driverless motoring.
