Nissan to electrify one-fourth of its sales volume in Asia and Oceania; importance of e-POWER

The new Nissan LEAF will go on sale in Indonesia and the Philippines by 2020, underscoring Nissan’s commitment to electrification in the region. The expanded availability of the LEAF is an important part of Nissan’s goal to electrify one-fourth of its sales volume under its midterm plan, Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022. The acceleration plan also includes assembly and localization of electrification components in key Southeast Asian markets.

With more than 400,000 units of Nissan LEAF sold since it went on sale in 2010, it is the world’s best-selling 100% electric vehicle. Within the region, Nissan has introduced the electric vehicle this year to Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong and Malaysia.

The introduction of the new Nissan LEAF, together with a series of e-POWER models, marks an important step in the electrification of mobility in Asia and Oceania. e-POWER is Nissan’s proprietary technology that gives customers the benefits of electric vehicles, but without the need to charge. Nissan Serena e-POWER will be the first e-POWER model to be launched in the region, starting with Singapore this year.

e-POWER, we believe, is the most pragmatic step towards electrification. In addition to introducing electrified mobility, Nissan is working on making them more accessible through electrification components assembly and localization in key Southeast Asian markets.

The new Nissan Note (series) HEV uses a powerful e-motor for traction(similar the Leaf) and a much smaller battery charged by an on board ICE generator.

The ICE generator may be replaced with a new ethanol fuel cell (as an option) by 2020?

AlzHarvey repeats a GCC post from just 4 days previous.

The interesting news is the possible arrival of an on board ethanol fuel cell as a generator, not SAEP's comments.

Ethanol fuel cells in Nissan Notes are not mentioned in either post.  They are your opium dream, just one more of your utter non-sequiturs which you use to degrade the comment section of this blog with nonsense.

SAEP. Please check with the Nissan e-POWER site for more details and you may have to change your comments?

AlzHarvey, there is no mention of fuel cells or ethanol on Nissan's e-power page.

Neither are there any on Nissan's technology page.

You are a worthless lying troll.
