Nissan has pulled a fast one. It is now the first Japanese car manufacturer to introduce a self-driving car in the Japanese market.

Reports confirm that the ‘ProPILOT’ technology from Nissan can help the car control the steering, acceleration, and braking when it is driven on a single expressway lane. As of now, Nissan has lent the existing Serena minivan with the self-driving tech. While the system offers lane-centring and distance-monitoring functions for expressway driving, ProPILOT does not require the driver to use the accelerator or brake pedals when being driven in congested traffic. 

Prospective buyers can opt for the ProPILOT equipped Serena, or just go for the regular Serena. Prices for the self-driving Serena begin at 2,916,000 yen (Rs 19.48 lakh), and the regular Serena costs 2,316,600 yen (Rs 15.47 lakh). Sources add that Nissan have set a combined monthly target of 8,000 units for the Serena. 

Nissan has paved the way for other Japanese car makers to follow. With the race to behold this tech set to intensify, the buyer has never had it this easy.
