3 reasons why you should own a Nissan LEAF


Nissan launched its Nissan LEAF last May, adding to the total roster of e-vehicles for Filipinos to choose from.

However, Nissan LEAF is quite unique in its own right as it offers the best experience for electrified mobility. A 100% electric, zero-emissions vehicle, it embodies Nissan Intelligent Mobility with tech-advanced features providing safety and comfort, confidence, and peace of mind for a unique riding experience. Strong acceleration and smooth handling define the driving dynamics of the Nissan LEAF, making it a versatile car for everyone.

Here are the reasons why owning Nissan LEAF makes it a worthy investment in the long-run:

Low running cost

Driving the LEAF can cost less for every kilometer. For example, based on a test run by the MERALCO Power Lab, the Nissan LEAF can be fully charged for just PHP363.401.

So on a single charge, the Nissan LEAF can travel up to 311 kilometers. This makes the Nissan LEAF’s running cost to about PHP 1.17 per kilometer, nearly half of the PHP2.08 per kilometer rate of a conventional sedan with a petrol engine.

Charging is not only far less expensive than fueling up—it is also more convenient. It can be fully charged in 18.5 hours at home or up to 40 to 60 minutes at a charging station found in every Nissan EV dealership from a low battery status. Thus, owners need to charge their vehicles once or twice a week for everyday city driving.

Low maintenance costs

Maintaining it can cost up to 23% less than the maintenance costs of a mid-size sedan. The Nissan LEAF’s total 5-year cost for periodic maintenance services is lower compared to petrol-run, mid-size sedan vehicles during the same period.

Additionally, LEAF parts can cost up to 39% less than that of ICE-powered cars. This is because the Nissan LEAF has fewer parts that need to be maintained and uses fewer consumable materials like oil and filters than an ICE-powered vehicle. This means fewer trips to the service center for oil changes and tune-ups.

Its owners are also assured that all Nissan EV dealerships have specialized tools, equipment, facilities, and trained personnel ready to serve their EVs’ maintenance and repair needs.

A worthy investment

Aside from low running and maintenance costs, the Nissan LEAF’s battery also has an 8-year or 160,000 km warranty and a 3-year or 100,000 km vehicle warranty, whichever comes first.

With an outstanding warranty coverage on top of the low running and maintenance costs, investing in this model means more time enjoying the thrills of the convenience of owning a vehicle.

The Nissan LEAF is now available in the Philippines for PHP 2.798M at the following EV dealerships: Nissan Mantra de Makati, Nissan Otis, and Nissan Cebu South-V. Rama, Nissan Tagum, and Nissan Matina.
