Pretty Soon the LEAF Might Be Able to Drive Itself

Nissan ProPILOT

Semi-autonomous technology is coming to the latest generation of the Nissan LEAF. According to the automaker, the new electric car will come available with Nissan's ProPILOT Assist technology, which will give the LEAF an increased amount of autonomy while on the road.

Among the available features on the ProPILOT system is the ability to help control not only the car’s braking and steering, but also acceleration control. Nissan isn’t stopping there though.

The automaker will also continue to improve on the ProPILOT technology over the coming years, hoping that it will eventually assist drivers in navigating intersections and other accident-prone areas of the road.

“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,” the automaker said in a press release.
