Recently, Nissan announced that the eagerly anticipated new Nissan Leaf, Nissan’s popular all-electric vehicle (EV) and currently the world’s best-selling EV, will be revealed just a couple of months from now on September 6th. Now they are adding fuel or electricity to the fire, by announcing that the new Nissan Leaf will be equipped with ProPilot Park technology—the first vehicle in the Nissan’s global lineup to offer such an advanced and innovative driving technology, “which helps drivers park by automatically guiding the car into a parking spot” and gives drivers the confidence that they can park perfectly.

According to Nissan, “Sonars and cameras on the new Nissan Leaf effortlessly guide the car into a parallel, angled, front or straight back-in parking spot, reducing driver stress by handling accelerator, braking and steering input. The driver activates the technology in three easy steps, monitors the area around the vehicle, and applies the brakes if necessary.”

The Nissan Leaf is the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle and the ProPilot technology is another example of Nissan’s mission of Intelligent Mobility, which states, “the company’s blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered, and integrated into society.”
