Last week Nissan Motor Company unveiled a world first in technology - the ECO Pedal. The device will assist drivers in becoming more fuel-efficient. According to Nissan’s website: “when the eco-pedal system is on, each time the driver steps on the accelerator, a counter push-back control mechanism is activated if the system detects excess pressure, helping to inform the driver that they could be using more fuel than required.” In addition, and “eco-driving indicator” will provide the driver with “real-time fuel consumption levels” which will allow the driver to alter his driving behavior so that he is at the optimal level for fuel-efficient driving. The ECO Pedal will be available commercially beginning in 2009. If you would like to read more, visit their website.
