Driver Assistance Features
ProPilot Assist will provide some semi-autonomy:
- Following the car ahead at a preset distance.
- Keep the car centered in its lane.
- Comes to a complete stop where necessary.
This level of autonomy is “hands-on” – if the vehicle does not detect hands on the the wheel, it will give a series of alerts to the driver.
Intelligent warnings – such as identifying a potential oncoming collision, alerting potential blind spots, auto-braking when reversing into an object
The Leaf also features the e-Pedal – reducing the foot pedals to effectively single pedal. There is still a brake pedal for emergency braking.
Three trims are available, the base model – Nissan Leaf S, along with the SV and SL.
Note: In different countries, the variations have different names and slightly different configurations.
