    Also, through the e-Pedal Step, the driver can decelerate smoothly and steadily without resorting to the brake and thus take advantage of the regenerative charging system. In fact, from Nissan they assure that it is possible to drive only with the accelerator pedal and in this way circulate more smoothly.
