DENR ac­quires e-ve­hi­cles from Mit­subishi Mo­tors

HWM (Philippines) - - Bullet In -

At the 1st ASEAN Elec­tric and Hy­brid Ve­hi­cle Sum­mit, Mit­subishi Mo­tors Cor­po­ra­tion (MMC) turned over five units of Out­lander Plugin Hy­brid Elec­tric Ve­hi­cles (PHEVS) and five units of i-mit­subishi In­no­va­tive Elec­tric Ve­hi­cle (I-MIEV), along with four elec­tric ve­hi­cle quick charger units to the De­part­ment of En­vi­ron­ment and Natural Re­sources (DENR).

“to­gether with the Philip­pine gov­ern­ment, we will study how to lower en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact to so­ci­ety through au­to­mo­tive elec­tri­fi­ca­tion. We share the same vi­sion as the Philip­pine gov­ern­ment in ac­cel­er­at­ing the motorization while min­i­miz­ing the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact,” said Osamu Ma­suko, Mit­subishi Mo­tors Cor­po­ra­tion Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer.

this is in line with their part­ner­ship signed last Fe­bru­ary of this year for a joint study on how the same elec­tronic tech­nolo­gies used in the Out­lander PHEV and I-MIEV can help in en­vi­ron­men­tal load re­duc­tion. MMC also seeks to in­vite other gov­ern­ment of­fices, as well as uni­ver­si­ties and elec­tric com­pa­nies to take part in the said study to de­ter­mine the most ef­fec­tive way of re­duc­ing car­bon diox­ide emis­sion and traf­fic con­ges­tion in the coun­try. The de­liv­ered PHEV and I-MIEV units will be uti­lized by the DENR and other gov­ern­ment of­fices for busi­ness use. Quick charg­ers will also be in­stalled at the cen­tral, and Davao and Cebu re­gional of­fices of DENR. Read more at
