 Nissan To Expand Driver Assistance Technology To Over 2.5 Million Cars

Automaker, Nissan has announced plans to expand its ProPilot driver assistance technology to over 2.5 million Nissan and Infiniti cars by 2026 and will incorporate next-generation LIDAR systems "on virtually every new model by the fiscal year 2030."

Nissan's new plan came as the company plans to cut 300 billion yen ($2.65 billion) in fixed costs and reduce production capacity by 20 percent as part of its "Nissan Next" plan introduced last year.

Nissan introduced four concept cars: the Chill-Out, Surf-Out, Hang-Out and Max-Out as part of Ambition 2030.

The concept cars are expected to give a sense of Nissan’s future technology including self-driving, interior features and unusual designs.

The Chill-Out is a little crossover that will use Ariya's CMF-EV platform and e-4orce electric all-wheel-drive system and is expected to arrive by 2025.

The Surf-Out has a decent-sized bed and detachable canopy. It is a little electric single cab pickup and it is expected to come with a dual-motor AWD setup and a variety of power outputs, offering off-road performance, utility power and extended cargo space.

The Hang-Out is more like a small camper van/SUV designed to "provide a new way of spending time on the move." It offers e-4orce and advanced ProPilot features. It has a completely flat floor and movable, theater-like seats, offering "the comfort of your living room in a mobile space" — something we've seen with other recent EV concepts.

Lastly, the Max-Out is supposedly lightweight with a very low center of gravity, and also offers advanced e-4orce and a concept convertible sports car that offers "superlative stability and comfort." Body roll is limited to delivering "dynamic cornering and steering response" to optimize handling and occupant comfort.
