The German equipment manufacturer intends to make this pedal a tool for limiting fuel consumption. It would emit a vibration whenever pressure on the pedal would lead to too high consumption. This would undoubtedly be more effective that the small light indicators when changing gear that exist on many models. Sales are planned to commence by 2012.
