Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn: Self-Driving LEAF May Be Sooner Than You Think

t’s not every day the CEO of a big company publicly tests out a product prototype, and then talks about it openly on camera. But that’s exactly what CEO Carlos Ghosn did last week at the CEATEC Japan 2013 Convention, a major electronics show. Moreover, the CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance said that its self-driving cars could reach the market sooner than 2020, as prpuviously promised.

To show his enthusiasm for Nissan’s autonomous car program, the Nissan CEO stepped behind the wheel of a prototype autonomous LEAF at the conference. Although Mr. Ghosn was in the driver’s seat, he wasn’t the one doing the driving: the car drove iteself.

“I didn’t drive anything. I was just sitting in the car,” Ghosn said in a video released on Nissan’s Global Media website. “This test is proving to me that, first, we have advanced a lot because I tested the prototypes two years ago, which were way less advanced than this one.”
