Nissan has released an image of its upcoming, redesigned all-electric Leaf's instrument cluster showing ProPilot Assist technology, its new driver-assistance technology claimed to reduce "the hassle of stop-and-go highway driving".

ProPilot Assist supports drivers by helping control acceleration, braking and steering during single-lane driving on the highway.

"In the coming years, ProPilot technology will offer increasing levels of autonomy, with the system eventually able to navigate city intersections. Set to help make driving more secure and more enjoyable, ProPilot Assist is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company's blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society," the automaker said.

ProPilot is due in Europe in spring 2018 and will also be available on the Qashqai and X-Trail, Nissan GB said at the recent launch of facelifted versions of the two models. Pro Pilot, already available in Japan, combines lane keep assist, intelligent (ie radar assisted) cruise control and traffic jam assist and means your Qashqai will steer, accelerate and brake itself in traffic queues. The delay in introduction for Europe is so it can be properly "validated" for the wide variety of LHD/RHD, powertrain and road conditions Nissan vehicles encounter across Europe.
