We have been waiting to hear from Nissan about the next generation 2017 Nissan Leaf but at the moment they are keeping very quiet about the vehicle. The Leaf is has been hyped a great deal, it came in second to the Tesla Model 3. We do have some idea about the technology that we might see on the vehicle but we haven’t heard any confirmation.
One of the features that is most talked about on the 2017 Nissan Leaf is the ProPilot semi-autonomous system. This should be launched over in Japan first and it is thought that the first of the production vehicles to use it is going to be the Nissan Serena minivan. Then the system should make its way to the market in the US, if all goes well.
Nissan haven’t said anything about when the ProPilot system would arrive or which of the vehicles it would arrive in when it makes its way to the US. However we believe that it will be the 2017 Nissan Leaf. For some reason it looks like the car maker is keeping very quiet about what happens to be the top seller among electric vehicles.
Perhaps the ProPilot is being introduced with another vehicle, it could be the Nissan Altima or perhaps it may arrive on the Nissan Rogue?
The ProPilot is different from the AutoPilot offered by Tesla as the former is suited to dense traffic conditions, unlike the latter. It is thought that if it arrives in the 2017 Nissan Leaf the system may be limited to just single lane features, but by 2020 it should be able to be used in urban streets that are congested on its own.
