As many are excited for the coming of the new Nissan Leaf, and with all the information going around about its specifications, a source revealed that that the much-awaited electric vehicle from the Japanese car manufacturer will be priced not more than ₱2.3 million.

Based on a tip given this week, the Nissan Leaf's price will be pegged between ₱1.9 million-₱2.3 million. The pricing will definitely provide competition to the Hyundai Ioniq, which has been in the country for quite a while already.

And here some bits of information about the forthcoming model based on what Nissan in the Philippines shared early last year.

A fully charged Nissan Leaf is expected to cover 311 kilometers, and the latest version (Nissan Leaf e+), can travel up to 400 kilometers. Aside producing no direct emissions, the Nissan Leaf generates a running noise level of 21 decibels.

The Nissan Leaf can accelerate from zero to 100kph in 7.9 seconds, thanks to its electric motor with a 40kwh battery that is capable of a maximum 148hp and 320Nm torque.

Nissan Leaf owners can charge their vehicle at home with a standard universal cable, and it should take 12 to 15 hours to reach full charge. A wall box can also be installed at home or in any establishment, and speed up charging time to about five to seven hours per charging session.

Originally scheduled for introduction last year, the Nissan Leaf's arrival was delayed for various reasons. Nissan Philippines recently announced the launch set for Sunday, May 9, 2021.
