Have the computer scanned to identify where the problem came from. Ask if the engine was overheating or anything, other than the reduced power, occurred.

That is going to be a problem with the "drive by wire" electronic throttle system. The first step will be to read codes but you will need some expensive equipment to get a final diagnosis.
