Mitsubishi i-MiEV given to DENR Cebu

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) has again led the Philippines a step closer to full-electrification by turning over one i-MiEV electric vehicle (EV) unit and an EV quick charging station. These were given to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Regional Office in Cebu City.

As you may recall, MMC donated the same to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) prior to this one. The Japanese automaker turned over an Outlander PHEV and i-MiEV, plus a quick charging station. Before DENR Cebu, MMC donated an Outlander PHEV and i-MiEV to DENR last year, during the opening dary of the first ASEAN Electric and Hybrid Vehicles Summit.

“We are happy that our i-MiEV already reached the shores of the Visayas region, and soon will also be our Outlander PHEV. This project will not only promote the use of electric vehicles, but will also play a significant role in the reduction of carbon emission of vehicles in the country.”

The i-MiEV and EV quick charger are part of the previous donation to DENR in June 2017. DENR Cebu is positive that this move will eventually encourage people to patronize clean energy in return for a greener Philippines. This donation makes DENR Cebu the first to drive MMC’s EV in the region. 

As you might have observed, MMC has been turning over i-MiEVs and Outlander PHEVs to DENR since last year. That’s because the two bodies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in February 2017. The MoU is geared towards collaborations on projects relating to cleaner environment.
