Nissan revealed today that the next-generation Nissan LEAF will be the first vehicle in the automaker’s global product line-up equipped with ProPILOT Park – the technology helps drivers park by automatically guiding the car into a parking spot.
ProPILOT Park liberates drivers from one of the most tedious, and at times the most challenging, tasks of driving. It gives you confidence that you can park perfectly, according to Nissan.
Sonars and cameras on the new Nissan LEAF effortlessly guide the car into a parallel, angled, front or straight back-in parking spot, reducing driver stress by handling accelerator, braking and steering input. The driver activates the technology in three easy steps, monitors the area around the vehicle and applies the brakes if necessary.
The all-new Nissan Leaf will also feature state-of-the-art ProPILOT technology, enabling autonomous drive functionality in single-lane highway driving.
The technology, operated at the touch of a single button, will control the steering, acceleration and braking in a single lane on the highway, assisting drivers during heavy traffic congestion or during long commutes.
This technology represents another milestone in Nissan’s ongoing commitment to bringing accessible, advanced driver assistance technologies to mainstream vehicles. Set to make driving safer and more enjoyable, the development of ProPILOT technologies is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.
Nissan has released the first teaser image of the next-generation LEAF in May.
Along with its new look, the second generation Nissan LEAF will also use an improved electric drivetrain that’s predicted to have a range of at least 200 miles.
The all-new Nissan LEAF will have its world debut in Tokyo on September-6th.
