Nissan to Make Automatic Emergency Braking Standard on 2018 Models

Earlier this month, Nissan revealed that the company plans to make Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) a standard feature on one million 2018 model year vehicles to be sold in the United States, which is more than twice the number of 2017 vehicles that are AEB-equipped vehicles.

Seven different Nissan models will feature standard AEB: Rogue, Altima, Murano, Pathfinder, LEAF, Maxima and Sentra (excludes manual transmission-equipped vehicles and all NISMO versions).

By using radar technology, AEB can monitor how much distancethere is between your vehicle and the one ahead and then warn you through audible and visual displays that you need to reduce your speed in order to avoid a potential frontal collision. If you fail to respond, the system is capable of applying the brakes to avoid the collision or lower the speed at impact (if a collision can't be avoided).

In a press release, Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc., commented, "The big news here is that we're making AEB standard across all grades of our best-selling models. This increased AEB availability is part of our ongoing commitment to help reduce fatalities while realizing our comprehensive vision of Nissan Intelligent Mobility."
