Nissan’s NREDI 2.1 intends to unify different markets under one visual identity as well as enhance customer experience through premium comfort and innovative services.
In the past year, the Nissan brand has grown significantly in the region of Cebu…to continue to support this growth, we are very excited to be opening not just one, but two new NREDI compliant dealerships,” said NPI president and managing director Ramesh Narasimhan.
