The Nissan Leaf e-Pedal has won the special Innovation Award at the 2019 Irish Car of the Year awards, in association with Continental Tyres.
The e-Pedal is part of the Nissan Leaf’s array of intelligent power features, enabling the driver to accelerate, decelerate and come to a complete stop with a single movement. The e-Pedal is designed to give the driver better control going up or down hills or when driving on winding roads.
The Innovation category was a closely-fought affair, with Nissan’s e-Pedal seeing off competition that included the Audi A8’s Level 3 Autonomy, Citroen’s Advanced Comfort Seats, Citroen’s Progressive Hydraulic Cushion Suspension, Mercedes Benz’s MBUX interface, the Volvo XC60’s Run off Road Mitigation and the Volvo XC40’s Smart Storage.
