The Nissan LEAF is the Japanese brand’s latest electric vehicle to enter the local automotive market. It presents itself as a new mode of transportation that doesn’t come with the downsides of having an internal combustion engine. That said, Nissan Philippines is giving you a couple of reasons why you should get a LEAF and why it is a worthy investment for a futuristic mode of transportation.
Low running costs
Unlike a fossil fuel-powered vehicle that is susceptible to changes in pricing, the Nissan LEAF is immune to these changes. Based on the tests done by the MERALCO Power Lab, the electric hatchback only costs the user P363.40 to charge to full. That is substantially less than what it would cost to full tank a gasoline or diesel vehicle. This gives the Nissan LEAF a running cost of about P1.17 per kilometer.
The Nissan LEAF can be charged at home or at the brand’s supercharging stations at select dealerships. If you charge the electrified hatchback at home expect to reach fully charged within 18.5 hours. While this may seem like a lot of time, you can easily just top off what amount of range that you use and charge the vehicle while not in use. Owners can also choose to charge their Nissan LEAF at select EV dealerships using the brand’s supercharging stations. These stations can easily fully charge the electric hatchback in a matter of 40 to 60 minutes. The service is also free according to Nissan Philippines.
Lower maintenance costs
Nissan Philippines states that the LEAF can cost up to 23% less to maintain compared to a mid-size sedan over a 5 year period. The Japanese automaker has also stated that the parts for the electric vehicle can cost up to 39% less than internal combustion-powered vehicles. Nissan says that this is partly due to the fact that the LEAF has fewer moving parts and fewer consumable materials which makes it easier to maintain. This also means fewer trips to the service center for oil changes and tune-ups.
A worthy investment
Nissan states that together with its low running and maintenance costs the LEAF also comes with a great set of warranties. The battery for the electric vehicle has an 8-year or 160,000 km warranty, while the vehicle itself is covered by a 3-year or 100,000 km warranty whichever comes first. With all the benefits listed by the Japanese automaker, this makes the Nissan LEAF a worthy investment for those who want to try out electrified mobility.
