Nissan’s flagship full-battery electric vehicle (EV), the Nissan LEAF, is now available in the Philippines for PHP 2.798M in 3 dealerships. Nissan is also establishing 7 charging stations in the country through its dealerships, creating the largest nationwide EV charging station network.
The zero-emission Nissan LEAF is the embodiment of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the automotive company’s approach to changing the way cars are driven, powered, and integrated into society. The electric vehicle exemplifies this philosophy in three key aspects: Intelligent Power, Intelligent Driving, and Intelligent Integration.
As an embodiment of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the Nissan LEAF represents innovations in the areas of power delivery. It has a 40-kWh lithium-ion battery that has a range of up to 311-kilometers on a full charge, based on the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) standards. This is the equivalent of traveling between Quezon City and Bonifacio Global City twice a day for five days for a daily commute, or a one-way out of town trip to Baguio.
Powering the Nissan LEAF is a revolutionary, all-electric e-powertrain providing a maximum output of 110kW or 150ps and 320 Nm of instant torque. The Nissan LEAF can go from zero to 100kph in 7.9-seconds while reaching a top speed of 140kph.
Charging the Nissan LEAF is easy and convenient as owners are provided with multiple charging options. The car can be fully powered up in 15 to 18 hours at home through a dedicated wall outlet with the supplied universal charging cable. Owners can also go to quick charging stations found in select Nissan dealerships nationwide and power up their Nissan LEAF to a full charge in as fast as 40 to 60 minutes.
A welcome innovation for drivers everywhere is the Nissan LEAF’s e-Pedal. This feature allows drivers to start, accelerate, decelerate, and stop using just one pedal by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator. When the accelerator is fully released, regenerative and friction brakes are applied automatically, bringing the car to a complete stop. This makes the Nissan LEAF ideal for stop-and-go city traffic since the need to shift from one pedal to another is reduced, making driving simpler and more convenient.
The Nissan LEAF is also packed with intelligent driving assistance features that give drivers more confidence and peace of mind. These features include Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Around View Monitor, High Beam Assist, and Hill Start Assist. It also features Intelligent Emergency Braking, Intelligent Driver Alertness, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Intelligent Trace Control to help ensure the safety of both the driver and passengers.
Both contemporary and timeless, the Nissan LEAF has a sleek design starting with the two-tone body and its iconic floating roof. The EV Blue accents and V-Motion grille complement the entire look. The interior greets both drivers and passengers with spacious seating for five.
More than just a car, the Nissan LEAF also has vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology that enables bi-directional charging to use energy from the LEAF battery to power homes and equipment, or simply give back energy to the power grid.
“Finally bringing the Nissan LEAF to the Philippines is a high point in our efforts throughout the years to inform and educate the Filipino public on the benefits of EV adoption. The Nissan LEAF is key to realizing our vision of enriching Filipino lives towards a more connected, sustainable, and resilient society,” says Atsushi Najima, president and managing director of Nissan in the Philippines.
“The Nissan LEAF’s launch in the Philippines is the latest chapter in our electrification strategy in ASEAN. This is part of Nissan’s DNA of daring to do what others don’t as we make electrified mobility more accessible to the people in the region,” adds regional vice president for Nissan ASEAN Isao Sekiguchi.
The Nissan LEAF also comes with a 3-year vehicle warranty or for the first 100,000 kilometers, whichever comes first. It also comes with an 8-year battery warranty or for the first 160,000 kilometers, whichever comes first.
Customers can avail of the Nissan LEAF from three dealerships: Nissan Mantrade Makati, Nissan Otis, and Nissan Cebu South-V. Rama, each equipped with EV charging systems for the exclusive use of Nissan LEAF owners. Four more dealerships will offer the much-awaited EV within this year, all similarly equipped with charging facilities.
