Self-driving electric Nissan Leaf navigates a 230 mile road journey.

A self-driving electric Nissan Leaf has navigated itself 230 miles up the country to complete the longest and most complex autonomous journey ever achieved on UK public roads.

The epic landmark drive - from the car giant's engineering centre at Cranfield in Bedfordshire, near Milton Keynes, to the Nissan factory in Sunderland where the car is built - included complex roundabouts, motorways, and high-speed country lanes with no road markings, white lines or kerbs.

Along the route, the car's onboard autonomous technology automatically allowed it to change lanes, merge into traffic, and stop and start when necessary. And it even pulled itself over to recharge its batteries.
