Car Technology


Significantly reduces driver stress when driving on highways in several kinds of traffic conditions, making long drives more comfortable and enjoyable

ProPILOT* is a revolutionary autonomous drive technology designed for highway use in single-lane traffic. Nissan is the first Japanese automaker to introduce a combination of steering, accelerator and braking that can be operated in full automatic mode, easing driver workload in heavy highway traffic and long commutes.

Employing advanced image-processing technology, the car's ProPILOT system understands road and traffic situations and executes precise steering enabling the vehicle to perform naturally. ProPILOT technology is extremely user-friendly, thanks to a switch on the steering wheel that allows the driver to easily activate and deactivate the system. ProPILOT's easy-to-understand and fit-to-drive interface includes a personal display showing the operating status.

・Maintains vehicle-to-vehicle distance within a preset speed range (approx. 30 km/h to100km/h)
・Keeps the car in the middle of the driving lane (At speeds under 50 km/h, the system activates only when there is a car in front.)

1. Maintains speed
Automatic speed control at pre-set speed


2. Follows, Stop and Maintains Stop
