Nissan Ormoc city

Nissan Philippines spread Christmas cheer as it visited the City of Ormoc to participate in the community’s annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony. It was part of the brand’s way of bringing hope to Ormocanons while advocating sustainable mobility with the 100% electric Nissan LEAF. The LEAF powered up the city's 50-foot Christmas tree through the EV's V2X technology that allows the LEAF to act as a power generator.

With the trip to Ormoc, the Japanese automaker is taking one of the many steps to reinforce the role of sustainable mobility in the country in creating resilient societies through its Blue Switch initiative launched in January of this year.
