Nissan Teases Refreshed Leaf Again (Video)
June 24th, 2017 by James Ayre
As we’ve reported previously, numerous times, the new Nissan Leaf EV will feature the company’s semi-autonomous ProPilot Assist features — which will allow for fully autonomous single-lane travel on divided highways.
While such a feature is of course not comparable to full autonomy, it’s probably where much of the initial interest in self-driving features is — a couple of hours of driving on the highway can be pretty monotonous, so it seems likely that consumers will embrace a means of avoiding that as soon as possible.
Here’s the new teaser from Nissan:
The press release provides a bit more: “ProPILOT Assist supports drivers by helping control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane driving on the highway.
“In the coming years, Nissan’s ProPILOT technology will offer increasing levels of autonomy, with the system eventually able to navigate city intersections. Set to help make driving more secure and more enjoyable, ProPILOT Assist is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.”
As noted above, the launch of the new refreshed Nissan Leaf will be in only a few months now. The new and improved Leaf will possess a greatly improved range and an altered appearance — which will seemingly make the model more “conventional” looking.
