Nissan is adding automatic emergency braking (AEB) to eight of its 2018 models, a release on the Billion Auto Group website said.
AEB is part of the Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield Technologies system and will be added to the most popular Nissan vehicles first, doubling the number of the automaker's car models with the technology.
AEB will be a standard feature on the Nissan Rogue and Rogue Sport, Altima, Murano, Leaf, Pathfinder, Maxima and Sentra, the release said.
“The big news here is that we’re making AEB standard across all grades of our best-selling models,” Michael Bunce, vice president of product planning for Nissan North America, said in the release. “This increased AEB availability is part of our ongoing commitment to help reduce fatalities while realizing our comprehensive vision of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.”
AEB detects when the vehicle is approaching another vehicle or large object too fast and alerts the driver so the driver can correct the issue.
