Nissan Expands ProPilot to More Models
Nissan’s ProPilot Assist technology is being expanded to more of its vehicles like the Qashqai in Canada.
Nissan’s innovative ProPilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system has been a hit with customers, with more than 120,000 vehicles featuring the technology sold globally.
The availability of ProPilot Assist is now set to expand to additional models, including the Nissan Rogue Sport in the U.S. and the Qashqai in Canada, beginning in late 2018.
ProPilot Assist is a hands-on driver-assist system that helps drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead.
Nissan’s exclusive ProPilot Assist technology was originally introduced in 2016 in the Japanese-market Nissan Serena minivan.
Since then, the technology has spread globally to vehicles such as the 100 per cent electric new Nissan Leaf, the European-market Qashqai, the Japanese-market X-Trail and the U.S.-market Rogue.
ProPilot Assist will also be featured on the upcoming all-new 2019 Nissan Altima sedan.
ProPilot Assist is the foundation for the autonomous vehicles of the future, helping drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and a set distance to the vehicle ahead.
It’s all done with a simple, intuitive two-button operation.
To activate the system, the driver simply pushes the ProPILOT Assist button on the steering wheel and then sets the Intelligent Cruise Control when the desired speed is reached.
ProPILOT Assist is designed to be more intuitive and user-friendly compared with other driver-assist technologies.
It can potentially help lessen driver fatigue and create a more confident driving experience – especially for drivers who experience heavy highway traffic on a daily basis.
