Continuing its slow tease of the next-generation Leaf, Nissan previewed the car’s self-parking feature in a video released today.

The feature, called ProPilot Park, automatically guides the Leaf into a parking spot with the help of sonars and cameras. Once activated, the feature controls accelerator, braking, and steering inputs to bring the car into a desired space, whether it’s a parallel, angled, front, or straight back-in spot.

“You get total confidence that even parking in the tightest space is completely automated and stress free,” Nissan says in the video. The global Leaf will be the first vehicle in Nissan’s lineup to receive the advanced parking technology.

The new Leaf will also receive ProPilot Assist, which keeps the car positioned in its lane on the highway. Over time, Nissan will add more capabilities to the feature, including autonomous lane changing. Eventually, the ProPilot system will be able to manage city intersections.

The Nissan Leaf will debut on September 6 and go on sale before the end of the year. In terms of design, the model will take after the Nissan IDS concept that debuted at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. In two separate teasers, Nissan revealed the Leaf’s unusual headlights and grille design.
