Coasting Before Braking

Implementation of coasting before engine braking means the engine brake will not activate immediately after the accelerator pedal is released. This allows the vehicle to coast until the service brakes are applied.

NACFE is not currently planning any studies on coasting before braking, given the simplicity of the solution, but would consider conducting a study in response to industry interest.
