Electric vehicles take center stage in Manilla

The biggest names in electric vehicles are in Manila for the first ASEAN Electric and Hybrid vehicle summit on Thursday.

Lexus, Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi, along with Philippine manufactures of electric vehicles, are showcasing their technology at the summit.

The industry leaders, Lexus, Toyota, Mitsubishi and Nissan are displaying six electric and hybrid vehicles.

Around 13 different local electric car manufacturers are showcasing their eco-friendly products.

The summit attracted over 600 participants led by electric and hybrid vehicle industry players, government officials, technical leaders and executives from global technology companies.

“To be together with the Philippine’s hosting of the ASEAN summit we decided to come up with the very first ASEAN electric vehicle and hybrid summit. So that is what we have here so we invited delegates from Malaysia, Thailand Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia to join the summit so that we can share best practices and share resources, share technologies even policies,” said the President Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines, Rommel Juan.

Eco-vehicles are the future says Ramesh Narasimhan, Nissan’s Philippine president and Managing director.

“There is an increasing acceptance of the electric vehicles, I think as the market acceptance increases the cost will go down against the current vehicles and I think future belongs to low emission vehicles what ever shape or form that is.”

The ASEAN Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Summit runs June 29-30.
