New Nissan Leaf to feature ProPilot autonomous driving technology

Nissan Leaf ProPilot

The next generation electric Nissan Leaf will feature ProPilot technology, enabling autonomous drive functionality in single-lane highway driving.

The technology will control the steering, acceleration and braking in a single lane on the highway, assisting drivers during heavy traffic congestion or during long commutes.

In the coming years, ProPilot technology will offer increasing levels of autonomy, with the system eventually able to navigate city intersections.

The development of ProPilot technology is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.

Gareth Dunsmore, director of electric vehicles at Nissan Europe, said: “Adding ground-breaking ProPilot technology to the new Nissan Leaf will prove invaluable in unlocking many of the benefits of electric vehicles, creating less congested, cleaner cities for future generations.”
