Regenerative braking is great. When it's strong enough to let you drive with just one pedal, it's even better. You'll be able to enjoy one-pedal driving in the next-generation Nissan Leaf EV, and the automaker is teasing the new feature in the video above.
According to Nissan, its e-Pedal is better than one-pedal driving in other vehicles in that it can bring the car to a complete stop and hold it, even on a hill. Nissan says drivers can use e-Pedal in 90 percent of their driving, even in heavy city traffic, without having to ever touch the brake. Just press the pedal to go, ease off to slow down, and lift off completely to bring the Leaf to a stop.
