Nissan seems to have planned for an extensive teaser campaign for the second-gen Nissan Leaf, slated to debut on September 6th in Tokyo. The latest update on the story is that the upcoming electric car gets some autonomous features.
The first one is ‘ProPILOT Assist’, where the system supports drivers by helping control the acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane driving on the highway. In the coming years, the technology will offer increasing levels of autonomy, with the system eventually able to navigate city intersections. The ProPILOT Assist is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.
The second one is ‘ProPILOT Park’, where the Leaf will be able to park itself. All it takes is just a couple of buttons to press.
Nissan has sold over 270,000 Leaf EVs worldwide. The new model is expected to come to India as well.
