The new #Nissan #LEAF with ProPILOT Park, premieres September 6
YOKOHAMA, Japan (July 1, 2017) – Nissan revealed today that the forthcoming new Nissan LEAF will be the first vehicle in the automaker’s global product lineup 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.
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.
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.
By launching the LEAF, the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle, Nissan established itself as a pioneer in the EV movement. Today, the Nissan LEAF is the world’s best-selling electric vehicle, with more than 270,000 sold worldwide.
