Nissan to Demonstrate Autonomous Cars in London

Home / News | posted on 20 01 2017

Nissan will bring real-world demonstrations of autonomous driving cars to London next month, to showcase next generation technology in the 'Leaf' electric car.

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. The announcement was made following a visit to the Nissan Technical Centre Europe (NTCE) in Cranfield, Bedfordshire, by Greg Clark, the UK Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Clark said "Government and industry are working together to build on our world class reputation for excellence as a leading location for automotive research and development and manufacturing. We want to see centres, like Nissan's here in Cranfield, continue to develop, making us a world leader in the development and testing of auto technology so we can anchor the next generation of vehicle manufacturing and its supply chain here in the UK".
