At the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Nissan’s new LEAF took two international honours.
In build up to the CES in Las Vegas that takes place every January, an announcement by the Consumer Technology Association took place in New York to a crowd filled with tech industry experts. The announcement names all the CES Best of Innovation award winners.
Nissan took its first major international award taken with the all-new, zero-emission LEAF which was the “CES Best of Innovation for Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology”. And the second title was the “Tech for a Better World”. This is just the beginning for Nissan as they aim for more. The automaker will also have the new Nissan LEAF on display at the 2018 show.
These titles were awarded to Nissan to recognize the advancements in its ProPILOT (also known as ProPILOT Assist) and ePedal technologies. In addition, its driver assistance suite and a new pedal handling acceleration, deceleration and braking.
One of Nissan’s executives, vice president for global marketing and zeroemission vehicles said that it was a great honour to have this early and important recognition for the new Nissan LEAF.
“This award recognises products and technologies that benefit people and the planet, so it is fitting that the new LEAF has been honoured. It is more than just a car. It is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, our vision to move people to a better world.”
