Nissan Philippines launches the New Year with a drive featuring the Nissan Kicks e-POWER Club

In collaboration with the Nissan Kicks e-POWER Club of the Philippines, Nissan Philippines kicked off the new year with an exhilarating event in Clark, Pampanga, showcasing the impressive capabilities of the Kicks e-POWER’s efficient all-electric drive. The gathering also marked the first anniversary of the club.

The club organized a fuel efficiency challenge, attracting over sixty-three (63) participants with Kicks e-POWER vehicles. The challenge involved a journey from Manila to Clark, starting at Nissan’s North EDSA dealership with a pit stop in Marilao, Bulacan. Equipped with full gas tanks, participants navigated their way at their own pace, employing various strategies to optimize fuel consumption before concluding the drive at the Hilton Clark Sun Valley Resort.

Derrick Tan Uy, a club founding member, and Marc Ernest Manasan shared the second spot with a combined reading of 27.7 kilometers per liter.
