Nissan LEAF lights up Christmas anew
For two consecutive years, the Nissan LEAF has been lighting up Christmases.
This time around, Nissan in the Philippines lights up the giant Christmas tree in Ortigas Center by using the powerful V2X (vehicle-to-everything ) technology from the world’s first mass-produced electric vehicle.
The ceremonial Christmas tree lighting activity was spearheaded by Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo, Barangay San Antonio Captain Raymond Lising and Ortigas Center Association Inc. General Manager Adelo Jandayan.
The Nissan LEAF’s vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology in the Nissan LEAF enables bi-directional charging to use energy from the LEAF battery to power home and office, or simply give back energy to the power grid.
It was last year that Nissan made a Christmas tree out of the Nissan LEAF by dressing it with thousands of Christmas lights and turning it into a traveling Christmas tree.
In a statement, Nissan in the Philippines President and Managing Director for Atsushi Najima said that they share the same vision with the Pasig City for a sustainable future.
“Nissan and Pasig City share a common vision of a smarter, safer, and more sustainable future, and the adoption of electric vehicles in the country is an important part of this future. We hope that the Nissan LEAF, lighting this Christmas tree in one of the country’s foremost business centers, offers a shining symbol of hope and a bright future for Filipinos,” Najima was quoted saying.
Aside from Pasig, Nissan will also be showcasing the Nissan LEAF and its powerful V2X technology by doing the same in Glorietta on December 11 to 13, and Alabang Town Center on December 18 to 20.
To note, the Nissan LEAF has yet to be sold in the mass market in the country. We just hope that this would be brought sooner to light things up more.
