Hyundai has confirmed that it will be offering brake pedal electronic throttle override capability well before the government mandates the safety feature into effect.
“The government mandate for brake pedal throttle override capability, a component of FMVSS 124 (Accelerator Control Systems), has been under consideration by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),” Hyundai said in a statement. “However, its final approval and subsequent timing have yet to be determined. Hyundai development teams have been less concerned about final government mandate timing, focusing instead on the immediate safety and assurance of their customers.”
Starting with production this month, 100 percent of all U.S. Hyundai models now provide safety brake pedal throttle override system.
