TOKYO -- Nissan Motor will equip all future vehicles with basic automated driving functions, aiming to release more than 20 such models by fiscal 2023. The technology will enable Nissan's more expensive models to be operated hands-free on the highway, while low- to midprice cars will be able to track vehicles in front of them.

Nissan will release more than 20 models worldwide with self-driving functions, hoping to sell 1.5 million such vehicles a year by fiscal 2023. Countries and regions without the necessary highway infrastructure will be excluded.
