Nissan to expand ProPILOT Assist technology to additional models

Nissan’s innovative ProPILOT Assist semi-autonomous driving system has been powering more than 120,000 vehicles featuring the technology sold globally. The availability of ProPILOT Assist is now set to expand to additional models, including the Nissan Rogue Sport in the U.S. and the Qashqai in Canada, beginning in late 2018, as Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa said today during the company’s fiscal year 2017 financial results announcement.

The Rogue, including the Rogue Sport, is Nissan’s top-selling nameplate in the U.S. market.

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.

Nissan’s exclusive ProPILOT Assist technology was originally introduced in 2016 in the Japanese-market Nissan Serena minivan. Since then, the technology has spread globally to vehicles such as the 100% electric new Nissan LEAF, the European-market Qashqai, the Japanese-market X-Trail and the U.S.-market Rogue. ProPILOT Assist will also be featured on the upcoming all-new 2019 Nissan Altima sedan. Additional vehicles will adopt the 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.
