Nissan is slowly unveiling information about the highly anticipated 2018 LEAF. So far, it hasn’t released any juicy details, but it has announced its semi-autonomous driving system and automatic parking. Today, another new tech feature gets unveiled: the e-Pedal.
The e-Pedal is yet another move by Nissan to make driving easier and safer for everyone. At the press of a button, the accelerator becomes this e-Pedal, which basically eliminates the need for a brake pedal in 90% of driving conditions.
How it works is once the drive activates the e-Pedal, the accelerator pedal takes on three functions. First, it accelerates as normal when pressed. Should the driver want to decelerate, they simple ease up on the pedal. To come to a complete stop, the driver simply releases the pedal — no need to press the brake.
What’s more, the e-Pedal system will also keep the LEAF stopped on a hill.
You can see all these functions in video form below.
We’ll learn more about the 2018 LEAF and all its technological advancements when it debuts on Sept. 6, 2017.
