Nissan sets goal to introduce first self-driving car by 2020

Nissan Motor, which grabbed a global lead in electric car sales with its Leaf hatchback, wants to do the same thing with self-driving vehicle technology and plans to offer such models by 2020.

“We will be able to bring multiple, affordable fully autonomous vehicles to the market by 2020,” Andy Palmer, Nissan’s executive vice president, said Tuesday at a briefing. Such systems mean “frustrating and unproductive commutes could become a thing of the past,” he added.

Just as the Yokohama, Japan-based carmaker set a goal of becoming the world’s biggest seller of battery-powered autos, Nissan wants to be a leader in the move to make cars safer by adding electronic systems capable of preventing accidents and injuries. Bloomberg
