The global introduction of the 2018 Nissan Leaf is fast approaching, with the all-electric hatchback now confirmed to be fitted with Nissan’s semi-autonomous ProPilot system.

The new video from Nissan demonstrates the functionalities of the ProPilot system which allows self-driving on single-lane highways. The system manages acceleration, braking and steering of the car, ensuring that the vehicle constantly stays in its lane. ProPilot can be activated via a push of a button on the steering wheel. This remains as the first phase of the technology, with future updates include intersectional navigation.

Also previewed here is the interior image of the new Leaf. It gains an all-new full-coloured digital instrument cluster, and on display are features such as adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist.

As previously reported, the second-generation Nissan Leaf will be powered by an upgraded powertrain and drivetrain, allowing a travelling distance of 400km per charge. The new Leaf will be unveiled later this year. Sales of the car will commence sometime next year.
