Nissan Previews the LEAF’s Self-Parking Skills

The new-generation Nissan LEAF just keeps getting more awesome with each preview. Recently, Nissan previewed yet another autonomous tech feature this new EV will have: ProPILOT Park.

This self-parking technology will assure the drive slide cleanly into even the tightest of parking space at the push of a button.

To activate this system, the driver simply presses the ProPILOT Park button near the gear shifter. The LEAF then searches for an acceptable parking spot nearby. Once it finds said spot, the vehicle pulls in nose-first or backs in, depending on the type of space.

Speaking ot types of spaces, this system will reportedly handle multiple types of parking spaces, including perpendicular, parallel, and angled.

According to Autoblog, ProPILOT Park will not be immediately available in the U.S. It will, however, be available in Europe and Japan in the 2018 model year.

The ProPILOT Park system joins the LEAF’s previously announced ProPILOT autonomous-driving system that Nissan revealed earlier this year. While the ProPILOT system won’t be a fully autonomous system, it will handle one-lane driving in stop-and-go traffic. A fully autonomous system should come at a later date.
