In what it calls the world’s first experiment of its kind, Nissan Motor Co. on Monday tested a self-driving vehicle on a public expressway in Kanagawa Prefecture, with a view to marketing such vehicles by 2020.

During the test, the autonomous vehicle, based on a Leaf electric car, performed several maneuvers, such as switching lanes, overtaking and merging, according to Yoichi Kishimoto, general manager of the carmaker’s planning and advanced engineering development division.
