    “We have been advocating together with LTO on vehicle safety and environmental performance for a long time. We will now intensify our advocacy and information campaign on EVs considering the effectivity of Republic Act No. 11697 or the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act (EVIDA) last May 15, 2022. The LTO motor show provides a good platform for this,” said CAMPI President Rommel Gomez.

    The ongoing LTO Motor Show converges OEM EV technologies which include hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and battery electric vehicles (BEV) as well as internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles through its industry partners like CAMPI.

    CAMPI member companies participating in the LTO Motor Show include Foton Motor Philippines, Inc., Isuzu Philippines Corp., Bermaz Auto Philippines, Inc. (Mazda), Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp., Nissan Philippines, Inc., Suzuki Philippines, Inc., and Toyota Motor Philippines Corp.

    These brands are showcasing a total of five EV models and five ICE models.

    CAMPI aims to increase the public’s awareness of electric vehicles as LTO’s data shows the penetration rate of EVs remains slow. The information provided by the LTO reveals that only around 1,020 units of four-wheeled EVs were registered from 2010 to 2020. CAMPI says there is much to be done to improve the uptake of EVs and the information campaign is among the group’s priorities.

    That said, the country’s premier auto manufacturer’s group will also conduct an information campaign on OEM EV technologies during the motor show. “We’d like to put objective information out there that is truly helpful to customers. Those that can enhance the understanding of EV technologies and increase the preference for EVs,” said Gutierrez.

    Earlier this week, the group expressed its support for the Department of Trade & Industry’s proposal of a zero percent MFN tariff on EVs saying the DTI initiative is complementary to EVIDA.
