Nissan To Launch e-Power, Limited-Edition Navara Calibre-X At Manila International Auto Show

After confirming its arrival last March, Nissan Philippines has wasted no time and is using the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) to launch its e-Power drivetrain. The first in-person motor show in two years, MIAS will happen from April 7 to 10, 2022 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.

The next generation e-Power is a self-charging electric motor driven system that gives customers a smooth, quiet, exciting, and fun drive. The e-Power is a 100 percent electric motor driven system without the need for external plug-in charging. The gasoline engine runs at an optimal speed to charge the battery when needed which makes the system fuel efficient. Nissan Philippines is showcasing the technology as part of its commitment to provide an accessible electrified experience for more Filipinos and to expand its electrification strategy in the country.

Also part of its electrification strategy, Nissan Philippines will also showcase the all-electric Leaf and its vehicle-to-load (V2L) capability. With the Blue Switch initiative, the company builds its long-term vision of becoming a sustainable company that drives towards a safer, smarter, and a more inclusive future taking part of the next phase of Nissan's electrification plans. Through this initiative, Nissan aims to partner with both private and government sectors to help address social concerns through electric vehicles like the Nissan Leaf.

Finally, Nissan will also debut a limited-edition variant of the Navara. Called the Calibre-X, this new 4x2 variant is made with versatile city driving in mind. It will boast of a bolder exterior design, and will pack Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM) features for advanced safety and convenience.

The MIAS will be held on April 7-10 at the World Trade Center from 10 AM to 9 PM.


  1. Kudos to Nissan for the noble and consistent effort towards vehicle electrification.
    If I'm not mistaken, among mainstream brands in the Phil., Nissan and Toyota (w hybrid vehicles) are at the forefront w regards to EVs.

  2. We need more electric vehicles or true hybrids. Some Geely and Mazda models are mild hybrids that doesn't offer a big difference in fc.

  3. I agree. If I'm not mistaken, the mild hybrid system, at least w Geely, is for adding more hp and torque. This is not the same w the hybrid system of Toyota wherein the main functions are for lessening emissions and for fuel efficiency.
