2018 Nissan Leaf vs Tesla Model 3: Self-Driving Makes The Difference

By  | 

For the past couple of years or so, Nissan has been teasing on the development of their autonomous system through the IDS Concept and it seems that we are not far away from its official debut.

Meanwhile, Tesla Motors have already enjoyed great success with the Autopilot system and they are about to launch Autopilot 2.0. Will the system from Tesla be able to defend itself from Nissan?

This is a question that begs to be answered because there have yet to be any self-driving feature that is as big as Autopilot. The system from Nissan will be debuting on the Leaf next year and it will introduce fully autonomous highway driving. Nissan shared that the system can perform flawlessly on multilane highways but it won’t be the complete package.

Nissan added that the complete autonomous experience will be released around 2020 and it will see the Leaf having the full capabilities to self-drive around the city and highways without any problem.

As for Tesla, Autopilot 2.0 adds in traffic aware cruise control, forward collision warning, and an autosteer beta. It is just an enhancement from the existing Autopilot system and Tesla is hoping that this will grant the upcoming Model 3 an edge over the competition.

We can’t decide on a winner at the moment and this will have to wait until the autonomous system from Nissan gets released to the Leaf. Only then can we see on which car can self-drive better.
