General Motors Expanding Smart-Pedal Technology

Posted Apr 6, 2010

General Motors is adding “enhanced smart-pedal technology” to all of their vehicles with automatic transmissions and electronic throttle control. This way there is less power used by the engine when the accelerator and brake pedal are depressed.

“We know safety is top of mind for consumers, so we are applying additional technology to reassure them that they can count on the brakes in their GM vehicle,” stated GM product vice chairman Tom Stephens. [MSN Autos]
