Nissan shares its vision for electrification in Thailand
Nissan recently shared its mobility roadmap for moving Thailand towards a more electric, more connected and more autonomous future. Speaking at the International Conference on Energy 4.0: Designing the Future of Thailand’s Power Sector, Peter Galli, Nissan’s vice president for communications in Thailand, emphasized how technological innovations under Nissan Intelligent Mobility continue to drive the Thai automotive industry. Mr Galli said that “Our mission is to transform the way we live and drive. For nearly 85 years, Nissan’s story has been a story of innovation to make peoples’ lives better. We believe the future of mobility in the region is electric, and we are the forefront of that, with over 70 years of heritage in the electrification space. Nissan launched the first mass-produced electric car, and there are now more than 380,000 Nissan LEAFs on the road. Our technology has been constantly evolving over the years as well, placing an increasing focus on safety, driver control and increased comfort for all on board.”
As the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the all-new Nissan LEAF showcases Nissan’s advancements in the areas of Intelligent Power, Intelligent Driving, and Intelligent Integration. It has a driving range of more than 311 km according to the NEDC standard, and is over 60% more efficient than the previous model per charge, allowing drivers to enjoy safer, longer and more comfortable journeys.
Mr Galli said that “Today, the role of cars in society is changing. It is now much more than a vehicle, but rather an expression and extension of people’s lifestyles. With Nissan technology, our electric vehicles can, in fact, become an integral part of the power grid for one’s home or even stadiums.”
