In a bid to highlight its commitment to electrification in Indonesia and the Philippines, the new Nissan LEAF is set to go on sale in the regions by 2020, according to Automotive World.

As a vital component of Nissan’s plan to electrify one fourth of its sales volume under its midterm plan, Nissan M.O.V.E to 2022, the automotive manufacturer is set to include assembly and localisation of electrification components in important Southeast Asian markets.

Nissan regional senior vice president and head of Asia & Oceania, Yutaka Sanada, commented: “Nissan is taking leadership to drive awareness and embracing of electrified mobility in Asia and Oceania. We’re creating excitement by bringing the new Nissan LEAF to more markets in the region and introducing in Indonesia and the Philippines is a key step. This allows customers to get first-hand experience with the benefits of electric vehicles for themselves and for societies.”

Since first going on sale in 2010, over 400,000 units of Nissan LEAF vehicles have been sold which has made it the best-selling 100% electric vehicle worldwide.

Nissan has already unveiled the vehicle in Australia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, South Korea, New Zealand and Malaysia already this year.
