Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) led a 2-day event to promote EV and PHEV technology as next generation cars. This event is a joint project of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and MMPC together with the Philippine government, members of the academe, and Manila electric company Meralco.
“As a leading EV and PHEV manufacturer, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) together with Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) would like to accelerate the joint study project with the Philippine government, academe and Meralco on how vehicle electrification can reduce carbon emission in the country. We also believe that the involvement of the academe would play an important role in validating EV & PHEV technology which is designed to lower dependency on fossil fuels which is harmful to health and the environment.”
Held at the De La Salle University (DLSU) in Manila, the symposium was attended by engineering students, along with faculty members from DLSU, Mapua Institute of Technology, and University of the Philippines.
During the symposium, MMPC tackled the essentials of vehicle electrification to reduce carbon footprint and the technical features of Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV plug-in hybrid electric SUV and i-MiEv pure EV. Other topics were also discussed including plans and initiatives in EV growth in the country as well as how to develop the EV industry and future projects regarding renewable energy.
Students and professors from DLSU Laguna campus and University of Perpetual Help System Laguna had a chance to drive the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and i-MiEV. As a whole, this 2-day program aims to lower environmental impact to society with the help of automotive electrification.
Steel wouldn’t let aluminum take its position as the top player in the automotive industry.
This timing is indeed perfect for a potential partnership.
Quite a sad exhibit but hey, at least now we know.
