4th Nissan Futures focuses on mobility solutions and vehicle electrification

Industry leaders, media, and government officials have gathered at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Center in Singapore from February 5 to 7, and discussed the future of mobility in the fast-growing Asia and Oceania region during Nissan Futures.

The fourth edition of Nissan Futures focused on expanding markets in Asia and Oceania under the theme “The future of mobility—electrification and beyond.” The discussions have centered on how new mobility solutions can help tackle challenges such as pollution, urbanization, and congestion.

“Nissan is committed to delivering smarter, safer, and sustainable mobility solutions for the future,” said Nissan Regional Senior Vice President Yutaka Sanada. “But we can’t drive the future of mobility alone. Exchanging insights between public and private stakeholders – like we do at Nissan Futures – helps create a common understanding of the path ahead and fosters collaboration.”

Nissan introduced more electrification, more autonomy, and more connectivity through Nissan Intelligent Mobility -- the company’s vision for changing how cars are powered, driven, and integrated into the society.

Frost and Sullivan revealed the findings of a Nissan-commissioned study on the future of electric vehicles in Southeast Asia. The study’s consumer research in Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines sheds light on the demand for electric vehicles, motivating factors for buyers, and barriers to adoption.

The new Nissan LEAF, which features the company’s advancements in the areas of Intelligent Power, Intelligent Driving and Intelligent Integration, was on display at Nissan Futures. EPORO robots and the Nissan Note e-POWER, featuring the e-POWER electrified powertrain, were also shown. A Vehicle-to-Home display was shown how Nissan LEAF owners can supply their homes with power from the car’s battery.

The participants of the Nissan Futures had the opportunity to test drive the New LEAF at the recently opened Center of Excellence for Testing and Research of Autonomous Vehicles (CETRAN) at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
