Will we finally get our hands on the Nissan LEAF?

The Philippine Electric Vehicle Summit (PEVS) is a fun and innovative yearly event where we get to see new EVs aimed to provide a cleaner future. For the past few years, the PEVS introduced various electric Jeepneys that can be used as the environmental-friendly alternative to the old Jeepneys.

For this year, it seems like the 8th PEVS that will be held online is addressing the emerging EVs in the global automotive scene. Nissan is one of the many car brands that will be participating in the event with the Nissan LEAF at the forefront of its campaign.
