Nissan Is Leading the Way In Technology

In the movie Back To The Future II, released in 1989, the filmmakers depicted the year 2012. In their estimate, all cars would have the capacity to fly. As we all know, 2012 came and went and no flying cars. It doesn’t look like we will see flying cars anytime soon, if at all. But here is some futuristic car technology that you might see soon!

Energy-Storing Body Panels

In the Future Car Tech may not have a battery. That’s because a group of automakers have been experimenting with body panels that store energy. They can even charge faster than conventional batteries, according to HowStuffWorks.

Talking Cars

Vehicle-to-vehicle communication is a technology that does just what you think it does. It allows vehicles to talk to one another, telling each other things like if there is an obstacle in the road ahead. One study suggested that this technology has “the potential to reduce 79 percent of target vehicle crashes on the road.”

Super Dashboards

For anyone who saw Terminator 2, from time to time the audience would see what the Terminator sees, and we could see how the computer would identify and label all of the objects in the environment. Soon, dashboards may very well look like this. They are called Augmented Reality Dashboards.

Nissan is certainly no stranger to futuristic car technology. The automaker recently experimented with glow in the dark paint and their Around View Monitor technology is even being used for deep-sea exploration. There’s no doubt that you get futuristic car technology when you purchase one of our many Nissan vehicles at Economy Nissan in Durango, CO.
