2018 Nissan Leaf Features Tesla-Like Display

Aside from knowing the fact it will be an electric vehicles, details surrounding the second-generation Nissan Leaf have been fairly scarce until now. Nissan has released the first official photo of the car, which showcases its autonomous driving technology that looks rather familiar.

The shot, which shows the steering wheel and gauge cluster, is taunting Nissan’s new ProPilot Assist system. ProPilot converges adaptive cruise control, a lane-keeping system and steering assist system to merge a semi-autonomous driving experience for Leaf drivers.

Details of the system are not yet known, but from the photo we can certainly tell the visuals are similar to Tesla’s Autopilot system. Even the graphics in the gauge cluster are similar, showing a little car with lanes on it and a green steering wheel icon indicating the ProPilot system is active and engaged.

Also noted from the image is a “Pilot” button on the steering wheel that allegedly turns the ProPilot Assist system on or off.

Of course, additional details of the 2018 Leaf will be revealed in September. Along with ProPilot Assist, we can expect a larger battery with longer range.
