INDUSTRY leaders, media, partners and government stakeholders gathered in Barcelona today for the second thought-provoking Nissan Futures event.
Focusing on autonomous drive technologies, artificial intelligence and the future of the connected car, the high profile event was the venue for a series of landmark announcements.
These included details of Nissan’s plans for the future of Intelligent Power, Intelligent Driving and Intelligent Integration – all part of the brand’s overarching Intelligent Mobility strategy.
At the event, Nissan announced:
- The launch of one of the most comprehensive studies ever compiled on the financial and social impact of autonomous driving vehicles on European roads.
- The expansion of Nissan and Eaton’s portfolio of xStorage Home residential energy storage solutions to include a range of six products as pre-orders begin in the UK, Norway and Germany.
- The launch of xStorage Buildings, Nissan and Eaton’s commercial energy storage solution, which will power the world-famous 55,000 seater Amsterdam ArenA using the equivalent of 280 Nissan LEAF batteries.
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.
“Today we’re 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.”
