Meet the e-Pedal. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – July 21, 2017 After what seems to be the tenth slow release of new info on the upcoming all-new LEAF, Nissan announced that they have their own version of one pedal driving mode called e-Pedal. I am not a fan unless it is incorporated with a robust yet smooth acting RCC in which no pedal driving is enforce. With the flip of a switch, the Nissan e-Pedal allows you to accelerate, decelerate and stop using just the accelerator pedal. The brake pedal is still there as well but you know where this could lead in the future. Nissan’s e-Pedal 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. Nissan said you can complete 90 percent of your daily driving needs with just the e-Pedal. And somehow it is supposed to make driving more exciting. Yes, they said exactly that. In heavy traffic and during city commutes, drivers will reduce the number of times they need to switch from the accelerator to the brake, making the daily grind simpler and more engaging. The e-Pedal technology is another addition to Nissan's commitment of accessible, advanced driver assistance technologies. This technology is but a part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company's blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered, and integrated into society. Early conclusions? Modulating your accelerator pedal for traffic flow and the occasional swap to the brake is hard enough. Imagine having to modulate the accelerator for all aspects of the drive. I have been in numerous EVs capable of one pedal driving and am just not a fan. Thank goodness it can be switched off and hopefully we will receive full glide capability from the much anticipated, all-new, 2018 Nissan LEAF for some real range extension vs. convenience feature. Or maybe there will be a full glide capability built in somehow? I am not sure how the two could coexist in the same system however?
