C! Report, part 3of3: Nissan’s take on electric vehicles in SEA and the PH

Leaf, Note e-Power, and e-NV200 to take point in Nissan’s electrification efforts

More and more automobile manufacturers are coming up with cleaner, more sustainable energy sources for their vehicles. From hybrid vehicles to plug-in hybrids, and now a push towards pure electric vehicles, Nissan will be bringing out three most significant models in their pursuit towards a zero-emission society.


Since its introduction in 2010, Nissan has sold 300,000 units of the Leaf worldwide. This newest iteration of their groundbreaking electric vehicle, fully re-designed in September of 2017, comes with an entire slew of technological features including the e-Pedal system for one-pedal driving. Watch the video below to see just how the Nissan Leaf is but one of more vehicles from Nissan that will change the future of mobility.




Featuring Nissan’s new intelligent power offering, the Note is the first to feature the e-Power power plant. Compared to conventional hybrids, the e-Power mill allows the cart owners to enjoy the benefits of having an electric vehicle without worrying about discharging or depleting the battery’s life. The Note is one of Nissan’s primary offerings to realize their goal of opening the gateway towards having one hundred percent electric cars having zero percent emissions plowing the roads.




Those with a need for commercial and larger-capacity vehicles need not fret as Nissan also has this base covered. With the introduction of the e-NV200, Nissan’s compact cargo van will also be getting the electrification treatment. Given how commercial and heavy-duty vehicles which primarily run on diesel are on the road daily, there is no question on how having a cleaner alternative will help reduce their carbon footprint and significantly improve our health and that of the environment. Cleaner vehicles need not be enjoyed only by personal car owners. With the e-NV200, owners of these vans can also sit comfortably knowing that they have done their part in paving the way towards a more efficient and sustainable means of transportation and business.

As was mentioned time and again throughout this three-part series, the interest and the demand for electric vehicles in the region is real – VERY real. Nissan, through the Nissan Futures event has given us more of an eye-opener towards electrification and its vast benefits. Despite the reluctance, and even fear of Filipinos, and following the implementation of the TRAIN law, it is clear that the government has a very big bearing on whether or not electric vehicles will have a future in the Philippines. Until that has been settled, we can rest assured that Nissan will be at the forefront of EV development and that their efforts can lead us to a cleaner and more sustainable future for all.
