Nissan launches Electric Vehicle range video

Second part of Asia & Oceania’s Electric Vehicle (EV) education series focuses on demystifying range

 

Bangkok, Thailand (13 February, 2019) - To inform buyers of the benefits of electric vehicles (EVs), Nissan’s regional headquarters in Bangkok has commissioned an educational series to dispel common myths; and in this second episode the focus is on range.

 

Thanks to technological advancements between 2011 and 2017, the median electric car range has jumped 56 per cent¹ and Nissan is one of the main contributors to this increase thanks to LEAF - the first and only second generation EV available in the market.

 

However, in a 2018 Nissan survey 80 per cent of regional respondents say that the fear of an EV “running out of power” was a big concern.

 

“As most city-based drivers in Australia drive an average of 38 kilometers a day, this driving distance can be achieved several times over on just a single charge in most EVs today,” said Vincent Wijnen, senior vice president for Nissan Asia & Oceania.

 

“The new Nissan LEAF, for example, with its 40kWh battery, boasts an average 270km per charge*.

 

“As Nissan looks to transform the way everyone lives and drives, this series is a fun yet clear way to educate people that electric vehicles have robust driving ranges to suit all lifestyles.”

 

The accompanying film – which is not relevant to the Australian market nor local-spec cars – shows some interesting information.

* Worldwide harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) range for European spec model. NEDC range is 350km.
