The Nissan Autonomous Car – It’s Happening

Nissan Autonomous Car

The latest craze in automotive technology is the development of an autonomous car – one that can drive itself, without human intervention.

By 2020, “Our cars will be ready,” said Nissan Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn Monday during a press conference.

This is very exciting news, although it’s not very surprising, as Nissan has always been at the forefront of innovative automotive technology. And developing a successful autonomous vehicle has been a huge goal for popular automakers, and even companies like Google.

Can you imagine life 5 years from now if everyone “drove” cars that drove themselves? We would have so much more free time – all of those hours spent weekly communing from place to place could be spent elsewhere, and long road trips would be a lot more painless!

We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves, but it’s fun to imagine a world of driverless cars. How do you picture it? Tell us in the comments!

If you’re looking to buy an inexpensive car, chances are you’re expecting it to be bare-bones without very many exciting features. Think again, because today’s cheap cars don’t come with cheap features. Quite the opposite, actually.

Kelley Blue Book recognizes the vehicles that load up on tech features while retaining a low MSRP with its annual 10 Tech-Savviest Cars Under $20,000. And the Nissan Versa Note has made that list 2 years in a row.

“The 2015 Versa Note is a great example of value, technology, style and comfort all rolled into one rock solid vehicle,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations. “With an extensive list of technology features, unique exterior and interior styling cues, ample cargo space and much more, the 2015 Note is the full package at a starting price that even the most frugal buyer can appreciate. We’re honored to once again be recognized by Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.”

The 2015 Versa Note comes with high-quality features like available NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps, RearView Monitor, and available Divide-N-Hide Adjustable Floor. If you’re interested in test driving a Versa Note, stop by Haddad Nissan in Pittsfield and we’ll get you hooked up!
