Nissan goes back to the future

Nissan has hosted its second Nissan Futures event with a focus on autonomous drive technologies, artificial intelligence and the future of the connected car.

Nissan’s showcase event built on its Intelligent Mobility strategy, with the company sharing its plans for the future of Intelligent Power, Intelligent Driving and Intelligent Integration.

At the event, Nissan unveiled a series of ‘ground-breaking’ activities including the launch of one of the most comprehensive studies ever compiled on the financial and social impact of autonomous driving vehicles on European roads – Freeing the Road: Shaping the future for autonomous vehicles; the expansion of Nissan and Eaton’s portfolio of xStorage Home residential energy storage solutions to include a range of six products; and the launch of xStorage Buildings, Nissan and Eaton’s commercial energy storage solution, which will power the world-famous Amsterdam ArenA in partnership with The Mobility House as part of a landmark 10 year deal.

Paul Willcox, chairman, Nissan Europe, said, ‘The future holds immense possibilities for those who are brave enough to embrace disruption and pioneer future technologies. It is our ambition to use our passion and expertise from over 100 years in the automotive business to help us live cleaner, safer, more sustainable lives. Our Intelligent Integration strategy is growing, our Intelligent Driving strategy is being delivered and our Intelligent Power plans are bigger and bolder than ever before.

‘We are excited to share these developments with the world because we’re convinced they will help spark a social revolution in intelligent mobility services and energy management.’
