Nissan will be launching its new LEAF electric vehicle (EV) in 7 countries in Asia and Oceania. The announcement was made during their presentation at the Nissan Futures event in Singapore.
The world’s best-selling EV will be sold in Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand as Nissan aims to sell it in 60 markets worldwide. Although there’s no exact dates yet as to when will this exactly happen, the Japanese brand gives this a solid green light.
The new Nissan LEAF is the most advanced, yet accessible 100% electric vehicle on the planet. This ingenuous car will make you feel more confident, more excited, more connected than any other mainstream electric vehicle. The launch in so many markets shows our commitment to playing a leading role in electrification in this dynamic region, and to delivering the future of mobility to the region now.
In addition, Nissan is still studying the demand of EVs in the Philippines before it considers bringing its zero-emission car locally. But with the fuel prices soaring, the increasing awareness on EVs, and the state of pollution in the country, it only seems logical to bring in the LEAF soon. Well, at least we think of it that way.
The Nissan LEAF recently sold 300,000 units globally. It features the brand’s latest technologies such as the e-Pedal System and the Nissan Intelligent Mobility Suite. The Japanese carmaker boasts that this EV has an increased range of 400 km and a quick charge function that can power-up the battery to 80% in just 40 minutes. Its motor can also produce 148 hp and a whopping 320 Nm of torque.
