First vehicle from Nissan to feature Autonomous 'Piloted Drive 1.0'.
Nissan Europe has unveiled the first Autonomous production-spec vehicle based on the Nissan Qashqai facelift. It launches next year, and will feature Autonomous Piloted Drive 1.0, where the car can drive autonomously on a single lane.
The autonomous drive system has been tested extensively by the company placing several sensors on the car to ensure the system anticipates its surroundings correctly.
Nissan produces the Qashqai at it's Sunderland plant in UK. It holds a success story for the company as in September 2015, the Qashqai became the fastest ever UK-built vehicle to cross the 500,000 production mark.
Nissan is following its commitment to launch a range of vehicles with autonomous drive capabilities by 2020, including vehicles that will be able to safely navigate city intersections.
