Nissan X-Trail gets drone option pack
Drone-equipped X-Trail X-Scape can capture your holiday highs on camera
Nissan has announced a limited run of 200 option packs for the X-Trail SUV that equip the car with an autonomous video-recording drone. The ‘X-Scape’ package includes the 500g craft, which can reach speeds of almost 35mph in level flight and can remain airborne for up to 25 minutes.
Launching takes a single button press and once up, the drone can track your movements using a built-in ‘follow me’ GPS system. Its speed and stability means it can capture video whether you’re walking, cycling, kayaking or simply taking in the view.
The Nissan-branded drone is a Parrot Bebop 2. Together with the included Parrot ‘Cockpitglasses’ headset, it allows you to watch and record a live feed from its 14-megapixel camera. The drone can be operated using a Parrot Skycontroller 2 remote control and comes with a handy backpack carry case.
The X-Scape pack can be ordered with any Nissan X-Trail in N-Vision or Tekna trim, both of which also have sat nav, a panoramic sunroof and roof rails as standard. The drone pack is available now and costs £500, but you’ll have to act fast, as only 200 have been allocated to the UK market.
