But it will be a different gas pedal right?

I assume the Toyota IQ isn't having the same issue as current American Toyota models are having?
How much of that is caused by brain fade, resulting from a poor American diet of too much; salt,sugar,high fructose corn syrup,fat.... Just try to go to a restaurant and eat healthy, if you do find something on the menu low cal, then they hit you with high sodium! After we eat too many calories with too much sugar, then we go too long without eating, and we crash.
Just how much of this unintended acceleration has been proved to be the vehicles fault? Not much, so how can we convict on false accusations?

Excuse my lack of knowledge of the background of the car.

Will the Scion IQ be using the same engine as the Toyota IQ currently has?
I think it would only be logical for Toyota to use the same engine for the IQ. The exterior of the Scion IQ looks very similar to the Toyota IQ, so I don't see the need for a different engine.

All Toyota is doing is re-branding the car under the Scion name - looks to be the same car to me...

Here is the engine that is in the IQ in the USA and other country's

1NR-FE The 1NR-FE is a compact straight-4 piston engine featuring "Stop & Start" technology and Dual VVT-i. It was introduced into European market in late 2008 with the Yaris XP9F. Improved engine performance combined with low emissions and fuel consumption was the principal aim during its development.
Advanced engineering has been applied throughout the 1NR-FE engine. Toyota engineers streamlined the engine's intake channel, used computer simulation to optimise airflow, smoothened all surfaces for less turbulence and rounded off all angles and sharp edges inside the engine. One of the key elements of the 1NR-FE engine is its piston design. Smaller and lighter than on the previous 1.3 unit, they are designed with a smaller contact area and use carbon ceramide, an advanced material commonly used in Formula One engineering, to reduce friction. The engine also features cooled exhaust gas recirculation (cold area specification models only) to reduce pumping losses and reduce NO[SUB]x[/SUB] emissions.
Technical specifications of the engine:

  • Displacement: 1,329 cc (81.1 cu in)
  • Bore x Stroke: 72.5 × 80.5 mm (2.85 × 3.17 in)
  • Max. Output: 74 kW (99 bhp) at 6000 rpm
  • Max. Torque: 132 N·m (97.4 lb·ft) at 3800 rpm
  • Compression Ratio: 11.5:1
  • Valve Mechanism: 16-valve DOHC, Chain Drive (with Dual VVT-i)
  • Fuel Injection System: EFI
  • Ignition System: Direct Ignition System
  • Emission Regulation: Euro 4 (Complies with Euro 5 after optimizations introduced in July 2010)
  • Engine Service Mass (incl. coolant & oil): 89.5 kg (197 lb)
