Recently I was at Singapore for the gathering of industry leaders, government officials and media from across Asia and Oceania for the NISSAN FUTURES conference. It was a three-day event bringing together influential speakers to discuss how to create a sustainable future through vehicle electrification, and how to make advanced driving technologies more accessible, under the theme “The Future of Mobility – Electrification and Beyond.”
They also introduce the New Nissan LEAF that 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.
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
Another car that was on display is Nissan NOTE. Both NOTE and LEAF are equip with the E-PEDAL system. E-PEDAL is driving with just the gas pedal and how it works is simple by just pressing to accelerate. When you let off at ease it will slowly brake to slow down. When you fully release the pedal it will completely come to a stop even on an up or down hill.
The Nissan NOTE is an E-POWER system that is full electric motor drive, meaning that the wheels are completely driven by the electric motor. It is comprised of a high-output battery and the powertrain which is integrated with gasoline engine, power generator, inverter and a motor.
Checkout the video I made that will show the conference and test drive of the Leaf and NOTE.
