    " Nissan Is Studying To Bring Low-Cost EVs To Global Markets

    Last May, Nissan and its joint-venture partner, Mitsubishi made headlines when they released two small EVs—the Nissan Sakura and the Mitsubishi eK X EV. While they may be designed primarily for the Japanese market, don’t discount the possibility of seeing them or a version of them being exported outside Japan.

    On his visit to Manila, Isao Sekiguchi, President of Nissan Asia Pacific Co. Ltd. said that while previous kei cars have been designed and engineered specifically to meet Japan’s exacting keijidōsha standards, he doesn’t see any reason why small, affordable EVs like the Nissan Sakura can’t do well on the global stage.


    As a refresher, kei cars are regulated in certain aspects such as physical size, engine power, and even maximum speed. In turn, these earn them yellow plates which signify tax and insurance benefits in Japan. In rural areas, they’re also exempted from proof of parking.

    However, the Nissan Sakura and Mitsubishi eK X EV managed to upend these standards, if by just a bit. Although they’re still quite compact in size and their top speeds are governed, it swaps the miniscule 660-cc motor for an all-electric drivetrain. Since it has to adhere to kei car standards, maximum power is still set at 63 horsepower, however, peak torque is at 195 Nm—more than a Nissan Almera or Mitsubishi Mirage. Couple that with its small size and light curb weight, its modest 20-kWh battery allows for a maximum cruising range of 180 kilometers.

    Sekiguchi says the all-electric drivetrain can make exporting the Sakura more viable from a business standpoint. He’s quick to point out that several automotive brands have or are coming up with low-cost electric vehicles, particularly in China and Southeast Asia. Nissan’s all-electric kei car, which is priced starting at 2.33 million yen (P 953,214) without government subsidies, could very well mix it up in that segment.


    Right now, it’s still too early to tell whether Nissan will indeed export the Sakura. However, they are carefully studying the business case scenario. What’s more important, Sekiguchi says, is for Nissan to expand their electrified line-up so business units around the world, including the Philippines can “pick and choose” solutions that fit their respective market requirement.

    To that end, they’re already working on expanding their EV manufacturing footprint with the possibility of manufacturing them in ASEAN, probably in Thailand, very soon."

    Landed cost will still be cheaper than the Renault Twizy (P680k).

    $5000 = P275k

    let's say:

    50k shipping

    25% dealer markup

    30% tax

    12% VAT

    = P591,500

    dunno

    iimport mo din naman lahat ng piesa

    puhunan magtayo ng planta, mataas kuryente, mahal labor (low productivity pa), lagay dito lagay doon

    kung maganda incentives ibibigay ng gobyerno

    pero hirap magtiwala sa gobyerno

    nagbabago ng isip pag operating ka na

    ang bigat kasi ng 680thou for its size.

    swerte mga taga china they pay only 215thou.

    Sa akin kung kasama shipping, tax at tubo eh 450thou to max 490. Its just a 2seater car. Mukha na gagoh pag apat sasakay.

    dapat dito papasok government service = make it easy ng lets say itax nila ng 10thou tapos si dealer 10 to 20thou tubo. Kung baga may price ceiling.

    So dadami bibili nyan magkakaroon competition gaso & desel.

    ang gobierno dapat more sa service ease of use. Yung bikelane na elevated at covered ayaw pa nga gawin dahil maliit collateral.earnings.

    Ako kasi gusto ko buhay na minimal gastos para may future

    at 680thou pricing na 2seater mukhang laruan eh mapapaisip to buy geely yung emgrand.

    Kasi at that price ang bibili ng wuling mga madami ng kotse.

    What i want to happen kaya gusto ko ibagsal ng govierno tax lets say matuwa na sila sa 10thou tapos price cap tutubuin ng dealer hangang 20thou = para price it around 300thou to 350 so inturn nagkaroon ng kumpetensya si vios, city, petron, shell, banawe parts. Nakita nyo collaterals maapektuhan pag affordable E.V. As in haba ng domino nyan. Sisimple buhay sa maintenance.

    Kasi look at the size ng wuling eh ilang balikbayan box lapad nya???? So hindi na dapat umabot 50thou shipping cost.

    So kung mahirap imanufacture dito eh make it easy to import para dumali buhay sa transpo.

    Tapos yung proposal ko elevated covered bike lane nakakabit sa sides lrt/mrt. Kasi not all makakabili kotse. Target market dito yung papadjak kahit malayo kasi ayaw gumastos pamasahe.

    So my proposal are diversity in transpo.
