Shown off at the 10th Philippine Electric Vehicle Summit, the Nissan Leaf gets a couple of tweaks here and there to keep things fresh.
Starting off with the most obvious, you’ll see the new 16-inch saw-blade wheels on all four corners.
The front fascia has been updated slightly to feature a subtly tweaked V-motion grille, while the rear has a slightly changed rear diffuser and spoiler.
But look a little harder and you’ll notice that the vehicle now also dons the updated Nissan badge (with the removal of the “Zero Emissions”) on the rear right side of the vehicle.
Meanwhile, the interior remains mostly the same with the ultra-comfortable Zero Gravity seats, the puck-style shifter, and the Nissan Connect infotainment system.
Aside from the new logo on the steering wheel, the biggest change would be the addition of a digital rearview mirror, similar to the one seen in the Terra. It’s a new addition to the full suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety features, which the vehicle still has.
The powertrain is still the same, so it still has the same 40kWh battery with a single electric motor capable of 148hp and 320Nm, with range of up to 311km.
Although, the best thing about all of these updates is that the Leaf still retains its price tag of P2.798 million. It will come in four finishes: Ceramic Gray, Pearl White, Magnetic Blue, and Magnetic Red, all with a black roof.
If you want to catch the car in the metal, you can visit it at the Philippine Electric Vehicle Summit at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City, which runs until tomorrow, October 21.
