The new Nissan Leaf...with only one pedal

The e-pedal. You'd have to train your brain a bit before you went out with that bugger.

Must be a bit counter intuitive at first.Having said that I think the new one looks better than the original.Still be of no use to me as I can't get near enough to the bungalow to plug one in to charge it.

Its a speed control. If you want to go slower, you lift, if the speed differential is large, it will brake.

I don't tolerate bickering, and I'm always grumpy.

So....if you take your foot completely off the pedal to, say, reach for your lipstick, you perform an emergency stop?




Anyhow.......here's a bloke with a woman's voice to explain:

But how does it know if you require gentle retardation or a panic stop when you release the pedal?

You'd have to have gentle retardation to buy one.

I had a mooch around one last year while I was waiting for my car from servicing and thought "It`s not a Micra anymore in the same way that a Mini isn`t mini anymore"
