Nissan Intelligent Mobility: The Road to Zero

Geneva – Mar. 1 – Nissan unveiled its “Intelligent Mobility” vision at the Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday, pursuing goals of zero emission vehicles and zero fatalities on the road.

Created to guide the Nissan product evolution, Intelligent Mobility will anchor company decisions around how cars are powered, driven, and integrated into society, all the while staying focused on creating more enjoyable driving experiences.

“Our Intelligent Mobility vision is a framework to move customers around the world towards a safer and more sustainable future,” said Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn.

“To realize this vision, Nissan has launched a long-term strategy, supported by significant R&D investments. This enabled Nissan to introduce the breakthrough LEAF, the world’s first mass production EV, in 2010 – years before any of our competitors. It has also driven our development of cutting-edge autonomous drive technologies, which will be available in a range of mass production models by 2020.”

At the core of Nissan Intelligent Mobility are three areas of innovation:

  • Nissan Intelligent Driving – creating more driver confidence, spearheaded by Nissan’s autonomous drive technology, Piloted Drive
  • Nissan Intelligent Power – more efficiency, more power, spearheaded by electric vehicles (EV)
  • Nissan Intelligent Integration – new links between vehicles and society

Many of these advances are already available, as drivers can rely today on vehicles to recognize danger or take appropriate action to enhance safety. Nissan is leading with its Safety Shield technologies like Lane Departure Warning and Forward Emergency Braking, and will advance this leadership into autonomous drive technologies, available to all customers on core models in the range.

Nissan will launch multiple vehicles with autonomous drive technology in the next four years in Europe, the United States, Japan and China.

The technology will be installed on mainstream, mass-market cars at affordable prices and the first model will come to Japan this year. An on-road demo event in Europe in 2016 will showcase the maturity of Nissan’s autonomous drive technology. In 2017, the Nissan Qashqai will become the first Piloted Drive vehicle available in Europe.
