In the past year alone, interest and debates have taken place about the merits and needs of EVs (electric vehicles) in the Philippines. So much traction has been gained this 2022, including a bill specifically tailored to allow the ownership of EVs to be more desirable for Filipinos.
Apart from the government, even local business giants have taken an interest by putting up charging stations, recently it was the SM group that debuted their charging stations at select SM properties.
Now Ayala Land has picked up the baton, the property giant is also placing charging stations in some of its key properties locally.
