Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist Technology to Be Included in More Models, including Automaker’s Top-selling Rogue
“ProPILOT Assist is a hands-on driver-assist system that helps drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead,” according to Nissan.
“ProPILOT Assist is an iconic technology for Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan’s vision of how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society,” said Philippe Klein, Nissan’s chief planning officer. “Its acceptance by consumers has been beyond expectations, and we’re pleased to expand its availability to more popular models such as Altima, X-Trail, and Rogue Sport.”
The all-new 2019 Nissan Altima will also feature the technology, which debuted on the Nissan Serena minivan in Japan in 2016. Since its debut, the driver-assist technology has been featured in the new Nissan LEAF and X-Trail, another model sold in Japan.
“Additional vehicles will adopt this technology in coming years, expanding to 20 models and 20 markets by the end of FY2022, as part of the company’s midterm plan, Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022,” according to Nissan.
