2017 Nissan Qashqai to offer autonomous tech
Although the Nissan Serena will be the first Nissan car to feature autonomous tech, the brand has just announced that the 2017 Nissan Qashqai will also benefit from autonomous features.
Avoiding talk of driverless vehicles is becoming more difficult as time progresses. More manufactures seem to be getting involved in driverless tech, making it impossible to avoid reading about self-driving cars.
Nissan has always been quite innovative when it comes to tech. Having been around for a while now, the brand has established itself on the market. With millions of motorists opting to buy a Nissan car, the brand is renowned across the globe.
This allows Nissan to experiment a little and try out new things, which many of the lesser-known manufacturers can’t really do.
According to reports the 2017 Nissan Qashqai will come equipped with a number on intriguing autonomous features, guaranteed to make things interesting to say the least.
Although full details have not yet been revealed, it’s believe that the autonomous tech Nissan is developing will help drivers with tasks such as acceleration, steering and breaking.
It’s still going to be a while before fully-autonomous vehicles start appearing on our roads, which is why for now manufacturers have to settle for partially autonomous features instead.
So far, opinions seem to be rather divided when it comes to driverless cars. Whilst some are excited about the arrival of self-driving vehicles, many are concerned about the safety side of things.
It’s still not clear just how safe driverless cars are, and with the recent fatal crash of a Tesla in “autopilot” mode, more focus than ever before is being placed on that aspect.
If successful with its plans, Nissan could soon become known for its autonomous offerings. Although, a few manufactures have already implemented various autonomous features, there’s not a single manufacturer yet that specialises in autonomy exclusively.
The next few years will definitely be interesting for the automotive industry, which should be rather exciting to watch.
