SINGAPORE – The new Nissan LEAF will go on sale in seven markets in Asia and Oceania during the next fiscal year, underscoring Nissan’s commitment to a cleaner, more efficient driving future.
Nissan will launch the model in Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand. The company is also exploring introducing the zero-emission car in other markets in the region, including Indonesia and the Philippines.
Nissan Regional Senior Vice President Yutaka Sanada said the company is working to bring the new generation of the world’s best-selling electric vehicle to as many markets as possible. The new Nissan LEAF is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s approach to moving people to a better world by changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society.
“The new Nissan LEAF is the most advanced, yet accessible 100% electric vehicle on the planet,” said Sanada. “This ingenuous car will make you feel more confident, more excited, more connected than any other mainstream electric vehicle. The launch in so many markets shows our commitment to playing a leading role in electrification in this dynamic region, and to delivering the future of mobility to the region now.”
Nissan is studying demand in Indonesia and the Philippines ahead of the new Nissan LEAF’s next launch phase, Sanada added.
