That's what I get for 'skimming' posts...

I completely missed the 'Brake' part in your original post, sorry. No idea on the existence of an electronic brake pedal. I think I can see why you might want one for variable electric braking but don't see why LR would need to make one for the current line up. What about adapting one from something else? Do Prius' have them or something like that? Might be able to adapt the pots off a TD5 gas pedal if you could get the travel to match up?

I'll look at a brake assembly and maybe it's possible but I suspect not.

But you can buy a pot and install it like a brake switch - just figured if one existed it would be better. Here is an example of one from a quick google:

That looks like a good idea. Just replace the standard on/off brake switch with that and get a variable reading to work with? Might need a switch as well for the brake lights or maybe you run them from whatever controller you feed the signal from the pot into?

Is there enough travel in a brake pedal for what you need? Once you take up the slack the amount of application travel is very small typically?

I am pretty sure it's just a matter of where you position it. The closer to the fulcrum point, the less travel. will need to look at a truck to see where the best place for it is.

FYI. The 2005 TD-5 truck the accelerator pedal came off of had a standard hydraulic brake pedal that you would find on a regular old defender. Nothing special!

Prius has brake pedal module.

Are we talking about a prius or a "prius". J/K

I need the normal hydraulic braking as well as the feedback of the pedal position so will stick with a stock defender pedal I think. My plan is to set it up with initial travel just showing that brakes are applied and use regen, but with more pressure let the brakes get involved and provide stopping power. It may not be needed at all with aggressive regen on the accelerator pedal but I suspect it will just change the feel - more like a regular car versus the car slowing immediately when you let off the throttle.
