2018 Nissan Leaf teased again… showing autonomous drive ability

The Nissan Leaf is coming soon and the Japanese car maker is continuing to drip feed images and information about its all-electric city car.

THE 2018 NISSAN LEAF will offer autonomous drive ability when it launches in Europe later this year and in Australia early next year. In the company’s latest teaser, Nissan revealed the Leaf would “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”.

Gareth Dunsmore, Director of Electric Vehicles, Nissan Europe said: “The ultimate embodiment of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the new Nissan LEAF will be the most advanced, accessible EV on the market, today. Adding ground-breaking ProPILOT technology to the new Nissan LEAF will prove invaluable in unlocking many of the benefits of electric vehicles, creating less congested, cleaner cities for future generations.”

    I wish they still sold the leaf here in the 30kw version, or Renault Zoe: looking to buy right now and there is nothing but BMW or tesla… such a shame because the car companies all think the Government should do the heavy lifting and they use naivety of Aussies not knowing their charge rates are better than the US.

    I’d love an electric fiat 500 to replace my 500s, a Smart for two electric or just one with good kms and not huge $$$$$
