The Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines (EVAP) recently held its 7th iteration of the Philippine Electric Vehicle Summit (PEVS). Boosted by the theme, “Electric Vehicles: Modernizing the Transportation Landscape, Driving Sustainable Growth,” the summit tackled recent undertakings the country has done to further strengthen e-mobility. It also showcased a number of hybrid and full-electric vehicles from mainstream carmakers as well as budding local manufacturers.
“We are highly encouraged by the support we are getting from major automotive manufacturers which is a very strong indication that our transportation sector is slowly but steadily transitioning to more modern, energy efficient, greener and sustainable mobility so that we can create cleaner and better cities for our children,” shared EVAP President Edmund A. Araga.
Taking his words into account, this year’s PEVS became the avenue for many carmakers to showcase their latest line of hybrid and electric models. Brands such as Hyundai, Mitsubishi, and Nissan were present to display an assembly of vehicles including the iONIQ and the Kona Electric, Outlander PHEV, and Leaf, respectively. Other car brands such as BYD, Dongfeng, and Le Guider Philippines were also there to showcase the e5, ER30, and more. Of course, an assembly of modern PUVs from different brands were given spotlight as well. With them are the latest models of e-tricyles, e-vans, and e-buses to complete the show.
