The LEAF will also light up Christmas trees at Glorietta and Alabang Town Center.

People have come up with different ways to feel the spirit of Christmas in this rather challenging year. Nissan Philippines, Inc. (NPI) has thought of this as well as it recently partnered with Pasig City and the Ortigas Center Association to light up the Ortigas Center Christmas display using the LEAF’s V2X technology.

The LEAF is Nissan’s entry into the fast-growing electric vehicle (EV) market. It was first launched in 2010 and has prevented more than 2.5 billion kilograms of carbon dioxide ever since.

The vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology in the LEAF enables bi-directional charging or two-way charging. This is why it can light up even homes and offices. The Nissan LEAF comes with more features that will surely revolutionize EVs in the country once launched.

Present at the Christmas tree lighting activity were lone district of Pasig City Rep. Roman Romulo, Barangay San Antonio Captain Raymond Lising, representatives of the Ortigas Association Inc., led by General Manager Mr. Adelo Jandayan.
