Hyundai Fitting Throttle Override
While Hyundai hasn’t been hit by major problems with unintentional acceleration, if this ever occurs with one of its cars, the safety feature will ensure that vehicles won’t have any instances of unintentional acceleration caused by electronic throttle bodies.
“With Hyundai’s brake pedal throttle override capability, any brake pedal input by the driver, even with a runaway throttle condition, completely overrides any throttle malfunction,” said Robert Babcock, director of certification and compliance affairs for Hyundai’s technical center. “It is no longer possible to have increasing engine power once the brake pedal is depressed by the driver. This adds a reassuring, incremental safeguard of control for Hyundai drivers.”
