Good things happen when cars connect with communities
What if cars could do more than drive? What if they could learn and become smarter, providing information and feedback to the driver and other cars – and even power communities? It's all part of Nissan's Intelligent Integration effort, and it's going to change the world.
Cars That Think
The robot cars are coming. And they're awesome. Nissan is developing the Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM) system, which partners in-vehicle artificial intelligence with remote human support, so driverless vehicles may be able to make the right decisions in unpredictable situations. The SAM system will also enable millions of autonomous vehicles to share information with each other, passing on intelligence that helps them operate safely and smoothly on the road.
An Electric Ecosystem
Electric is the future. You can drive it, store it, share it, sell it, chop it up, save it, or give it away.
EV Charging Infrastructure
Driving electric is getting easier every day. An ever-expanding network of charging stations is making sure of that. Nissan is constantly working with governments and private companies to make plugging in as accessible as possible. We're especially focused on fast-charging and creating fast-charge corridors around the world.
Vehicle to Home
Now you can use your Nissan LEAF to power your home or the grid – or even bring power to those in need. When emergencies happen, the Vehicle to Home system can be leveraged as backup power. The system also enables you to store home-generated renewable energy – such as solar – in your Nissan LEAF battery, then draw on this power in the evening when energy costs are high. We're also testing vehicle-to-grid systems, where Nissan LEAF owners can return energy from their cars back to the grid.
xStorage Home Energy System
An initiative in Europe, xStorage gives Nissan's electric vehicle batteries a second life. After they're no longer powering cars, they still have enough juice to power energy storage systems for homes. Nissan partnered with Eaton to create a system that lets you control how and when to put the energy to use, so you can save money and take a load off the grid.
Mobility For Everyone
Everyone has a right to get around. We’re making it possible with Easy Ride and the ‘e-share mobi’ car-sharing program.
In the near future, you can pick your destination and call a robo-vehicle – all from an app. Working with DeNA, Nissan is already testing Easy Ride in the field, envisioned as an autonomous transportation service that helps people get around more freely. New to the area? You'll be able to check out local hot spots or a sightseeing route – recommended by your friendly Easy Ride, of course.
Car sharing brought to you by Nissan. An innovative program now in place in Japan, e-share mobi currently has no monthly membership fee and no additional distance-based fees. Daily cleaning keeps the vehicles clean and comfortable, and users can even get help with navigation and recommended routes from a live operator via phone.
Just touch a button, and you're dialed into everything you love, including friends, music, movies, food, and more.
To the road. To your car. To your community. And to the world. Nissan vehicles feature intuitive technology that gives you greater control over your driving experience, starting with NissanConnect. A suite of advanced features and apps – including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa – allow you to play your music, keep tabs on your social network, and navigate any city like a local.
NISSAN Door To Door Navigation
Nissan Door to Door Navigation is just what it says: getting you all the way to your final destination. If you end up parking several blocks away, it will give you walking directions the rest of the way there – a great help in unfamiliar locations. Other features that make every drive a little easier include detailed real-time Premium Traffic, Bluetooth streaming audio, voice recognition, and more.
Over-the-Air Map Updates
Keeping navigation current helps make sure you get where you want to go, when you want to get there. With over-the-air map updates, your Nissan Navigation System can update invisibly, behind the scenes – no visits to a dealer required.
Remote Access Through Smart Phone
Using the NissanConnect Services App, your smartphone gives you a VIP pass to your Nissan. Convenient features include Remote Engine Start/Stop, Remote Door Lock Unlock, and more. Want to impress your friends? You can even remotely access vehicle functions from your Apple Watch.
