Nissan Aiming for Autonomous Drive Vehicles by 2020

Autonomous Drive VehiclesAutonomous drive vehicles seem somewhat futuristic, but Nissan is hoping to have commercially viable autonomous drive vehicles on the road by 2020. To reach this goal, they have begun testing in Japan. Autonomous vehicles are getting lots of attention in Japan as their prime minister and other top officials have taken these vehicles out for a spin. These vehicles are even allowed on the highways!

The IHS report on autonomous vehicles states that the first generation of these vehicles will have to be co-piloted by a human who is ready to take control of the car if needed. They also say that completely independent vehicles could make their way to the market as early as 2030. Nissan hopes that once these vehicles become commercialized; there will be reduced accidents on the road resulting in less injuries and fatalities.

At Blackburn Nissan, we are proud to be a part of a company who likes to push the limits with innovations and new technologies. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for Nissan’s autonomous vehicles.

Do you think autonomous vehicles will be available to consumers sooner or later? Do you think they will be available in the US or overseas first? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
