Nissan to Test Autonomous Vehicles on European Roads
Nissan will bring its first real-world demonstrations of autonomous driving cars to Britain in February 2017 using a modified Nissan LEAF electric vehicle.
The on-road demonstrations will take place in London, enabling the vehicle and its passengers to cover a diverse city environment.
Passengers, including government officials and technical and safety experts, will be given the opportunity to experience and test the technology in a live environment in a modified Nissan LEAF.
These will be the first demonstrations of Nissan’s autonomous drive technology on public roads in Europe, representing the next step in Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered, and integrated into wider society.
It follows recent announcements that both the refreshed Qashqai and the new LEAF, both coming soon, will be equipped with autonomous drive technology to enable single lane autonomous driving on motorways.
