Left Foot Accelerators

 Home / Motability / Left Foot Accelerators

We offer left foot accelerators for almost every model of vehicle in the UK, either the twin-folding (twin flip) model or the revolutionary electric model for vehicles with floor mounted electric organ style accelerator pedals.

Both models replicate the standard accelerator pedal with an additional pedal to the left hand side of the brake pedal, allowing the vehicle to be easily converted to drive with either the left or right foot.

The replication of the standard pedal results in an unnoticeable difference between operating the original pedal or the left foot accelerator pedal.  The right and left hand side pedals are equally spaced either side of the brake pedal and full engagement is achieved which results in no loss of “kick down” or reduced amount of throttle.

The safety function only allows for development or use of a single pedal at a time, so if the vehicle is shared, both drivers can easily select the pedal they wish to use and a service technician can also drive the vehicle safely.

Twin Folding (Twin Flip) Left Foot Accelerator

Our twin folding (twin flip) left foot accelerator mechanically replicates the standard accelerator pedal with an additional pedal to the left hand side of the brake, allowing a quick transfer for right or left footed driving.

The accelerator pedal is swapped from side to side by folding down the required pedal. The other pedal will fold up out of the way.

We recommend that anyone considering driving with a left foot accelerator for the first time should consider having a driving assessment. If you have previously driven vehicles with manual transmission we would not recommend a left foot accelerator. This is due to the finesse required for breaking/accelerating being very different from the operation of a clutch pedal. We would generally suggest you consider push/pull hand controls.

Electric Left Foot Accelerator

The revolutionary electric left foot accelerator is designed for vehicles with an electric organ style accelerator pedal as seen in vehicles such as BMW and Volkswagen. A genuine manufacture’s pedal is installed to the left of a brake and is connected to the accelerator system.

The required accelerator pedal is selected by simply moving the toggle switch to the desired side. The other pedal will not be operable.
