Nissan is proud of the E-Pedal, which they claim to simplify the overall driving experience as it allows anyone to drive a Leaf with only one pedal. The car is able to hold itself even on a hill without ever touching the brake. More safety features include an emergency braking monitor, which can even automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision or lessen the severity of an impact.
With four cameras giving you a virtual bird’s-eye view around the car, it can alert the driver to moving objects near the vehicle. Beyond the slew of standard airbags and stability assists, it comes with Intelligent Trace Control, a system which can brake each wheel individually to help the car steer smoothly through the corners. Another unique feature is Intelligent Ride Control, a system which uses brakes and engine torque to reduce pitch and roll for a smoother ride.
