Nissan Philippines has been busy this year improving its lineup including the introduction of the facelifted Navara pickup truck and the local launch of the LEAF electric vehicle. But despite the tight schedule, the car brand remains firm in its commitment to give back to the Filipino community as it donated 4,000 meal packs to medical frontliners at the Philippine General Hospital (PGH).

“We continue to pay tribute to our healthcare workers who are dedicated in face this pandemic as part of our vision to enrich people’s lives.

The turnover ceremony was joined by the Urvan Pilipinas Car Club

Members of the Urvan Pilipinas Car Club also showed their support by helping deliver the 4,000 meal packs to the hospital. Taking advantage of the Nissan Urvan’s long and spacious cabin, the meal packs arrived securely and were distributed to the PGH staff, doctors, and nurses who work hard to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Nissan Urvan is the brand’s entry to the van segment which can comfortably seat from 10 up to 18 passengers, depending on the configuration. It is powered by a 2.5-liter YD25DDTi inline-four diesel engine that can generate 127 hp and 356 Nm of torque.
