The Hyundai brand has always been synonymous with passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. It’s claim to fame in the Philippines is arguably the Starex, which won the Filipino family over for its value for money proposition. Now, it seems lke the Korean automaker wants to have a name recall when it comes to commercial vehicles.
More specifically, Hyundai Philippines is pushing its truck and bus offerings via a new venture and a new dealership. Hyundai Cainta recently broke ground for a new home that will cater to the needs of the fast-growing commercial vehicle market. Strategically located in the bustling municipality of Cainta, Rizal, Hyundai Trucks and Buses Cainta is poised to serve a booming segment that aims to provide quality transport to the Filipino people.
The new dealership is under the leadership of Shaw Auto Resources Inc, an award-winning group that won the 2016 Hyundai Dealer of the Year Award. According to Felix Limcaoco III, HTBC President, shared, “From the winning team behind the 2016 Hyundai Dealer of the Year, Shaw Automotive Resources Inc. is proud to continue its strong partnership with Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) by adding Hyundai Trucks and Buses to its roster of business and people movers here in the growing municipality of Cainta, Rizal.”
With this, we can expect to see Hyundai’s commercial vehicle fleet roaming our roads real soon.
