Nissan-Renault announced Thursday that it would have 10 cars on sale worldwide with autonomous features ready by the end of the decade.
Considering the photo provided by the automaker is of a Nissan Leaf, we can begin there.
The automaker announced Thursday that beginning this year, Nissan, Renault or Infiniti vehicles would be enabled with â€œsingle-lane control,â€� which will drive its cars on the â€œautonomously and safely in stop-and-go traffic on highways,â€� according to a Nissan spokeswoman.
(For comparisonâ€™s sake: Volvoâ€™s Pilot Assist system works similarly in its XC90, which can pilot that car under 30 mph in a single, clearly visible lane. Itâ€™s unclear if Nissanâ€™s system will work under similar circumstances.)
Nissan didnâ€™t specify what cars the single lane system would be available in, nor what trim levels, but you and I know itâ€™ll be in the Murano, at least. Maybe not the Versa Note, however.
The automaker also added that by 2018, some of its vehicles would be equipped with â€œmultiple lane controlâ€� features that can switch lanes and avoid road hazards. By 2020, its cars will have intersection control that will navigate city streets and intersections without driver control, according to Nissan.
Nissan didnâ€™t specify if its self-driving features would come standard on its models, only to say that they would be on â€œmainstream, mass-market cars at affordable prices,â€� according to the statement.
