Nissan cites Leaf EV as ‘smart choice’

Nissan in the Philippines claimed that its electric vehicle offering Leaf is a worthy investment in the long run.

The local distributor for the Japanese automaker said that Nissan Leaf, which it says is the "embodiment of Nissan Intelligent Mobility," is fitted with “tech-advanced features providing safety and comfort, confidence, and peace of mind for a unique riding experience.”

Aside from being a versatile and smart ride, the Nissan Leaf “promises lower running and maintenance costs compared to the usual cars powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE)... This makes owning a Nissan Leaf a worthy investment,” it added.

According to Nissan’s local arm, using the Leaf can cost less for every kilometer compared to a regular ICE-powered vehicle. 

“Based on a test run by the Meralco Power Lab, the Nissan Leaf can be fully charged for just P363.40” —basically the price of two drinks at a coffee shop. Based on the computation they have shared, a fully juiced-up Leaf can travel up to 311 kilometers, making the Nissan Leaf’s running cost to about P1.17 per kilometer or nearly half of the P2.08 cost over the same distance for an average sedan with a petrol engine.

They also shared that aside from being less expensive, charging the Nissan Leaf is also convenient. At home, the Nissan Leaf can be fully charged in about 18.5 hours or just up to 40-60 minutes in a charging facility found in select dealerships. To add, Leaf owners only need to charge their vehicles one or twice a week for normal city driving.

Further, Nissan also showcased that its maintenance costs also considered less than of a mid-size sedan—up to 23 percent, to be more specific. “The Nissan Leaf's total five-year cost for periodic maintenance services is lower compared to petrol-run, mid-size sedan vehicles during the same period,” Nissan shared.

Apart from that, since it has fewer consumable materials compared to an ICE-propelled kind, the Nissan Leaf parts cost 39 percent less.

“Nissan Leaf owners are also assured that all Nissan EV dealerships have specialized tools, equipment, facilities, and trained personnel ready to serve the maintenance and repair needs of their EVs,” the statement expounded.

Moreover, the Nissan Leaf’s battery has an eight-year or 160,000-kilometer warranty and a three-year or 100,000-kilometer vehicle warranty, whichever comes first.

The Nissan Leaf is priced at P2.798 million and is available in the following dealerships:
