Nissan Qashqai to gain autonomous tech from 2017

Date: 01 March 2016   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

Nissan will introduce semi-autonomous technology to its Qashqai crossover from next year.

The facelifted model will be equipped with the firm's Piloted Drive 1.0 feature, which will allow the vehicle to drive autonomously in a single lane in heavy traffic conditions.

Nissan previously announced it would launch a range of vehicles with driverless capabilities.

Within the next four years Nissan will introduce a multiple lane control systems, which will allow the vehicle to navigate hazards and change lanes, while by the end of this decade, the company aims to introduce 'inner-city' autonomy, which will allow vehicles to negotiate cross-roads without driver intervention.

"The Nissan Qashqai has always been a trailblazer in the market so it's fitting that customers will get to experience the future of mobility in our award-winning crossover as early as 2017," said Paul Wilcock, chairman of Nissan Europe. "It pioneered the crossover boom, and now it will spearhead Nissan's move towards launching a range of vehicles with autonomous drive capabilities from 2017.

"Yet again, we are taking technology normally found in premium cars and making it accessible to millions of motorists."
