Nissan FUTURES uncovers roadmap to electrified mobility

Japanese automaker Nissan will discuss the future of electrified mobility in ASEAN through the interactive online webinar Nissan FUTURES – Electrification and Beyond. Under the theme ‘Electrifying 250 million cars. An impossible dream?’, hosted by motoring journalist James Deakin, as industry leaders, government officials, media and Nissan executives discuss the opportunity for carbon-neutral mobility in ASEAN.

Frost & Sullivan will unveil results of a new study on consumer perceptions towards electrified mobility in Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and the Philippines.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has labelled air pollution 1 and traffic noise pollution 2 as the top two greatest environmental risks to health. Transportation produces an average high of 83dB noise level in key ASEAN cities 3 , a striking 50% above the WHO advised level 4.

“As ASEAN governments and business leaders adjust to the new normal in 2021, electrifying 250 million cars in ASEAN is a key step in creating a more sustainable future in Southeast Asia. Moreover, environmental sustainability has been underlined by economists and consultancies as one of the key engines to accelerate economic growth,” says Isao Sekiguchi, Regional Vice President, Nissan ASEAN. “As the pioneer in electrified mobility, Nissan is committed to make this dream reality. But we cannot do this alone; Nissan FUTURES is the platform to discuss bold policies and business plans to dare the impossible.”

Sekiguchi will be joined in a panel discussion by Edmund Araga, President, Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines; Dusit Anantarak, Senior Expert, Office of Industrial Economics, Ministry of Industry, Thailand; and Vivek Vaidya, Associate Partner, Senior Vice President, Intelligent Mobility, Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific. They will shine their light on the changing attitudes towards electric vehicles over the last two years and the socially critical subject of changing mobility priorities in the years to come.

Nissan FUTURES is an event series in which subject experts from around the world discuss the future of mobility. Since 2018, the Japanese automaker has organized ASEAN Nissan FUTURES events in Singapore and Hong Kong. The 2021 edition will be delivered online, allowing participants to join from anywhere. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in Q&As with panelists.
