    Additional investments are earmarked to further support the domestic adoption of electric vehicles,” the local importer of Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini and Bentley mentioned in a statement.

    “As we take the lead in ushering sustainable electric mobility in the Philippines, we are building the infrastructure needed to promote the country’s reception of this new technology. By doing this, we are opening possibilities for consumers and stakeholders to embrace a more viable and environmentally responsible way by which to use resources,” Coyiuto said.   

    PGA Cars started its journey in electrified mobility when it introduced the fully electric Porsche Taycan early 2020, and noted that the demand for the four-door sports car has grown consistently since then. Recently, the group added more electric cars with Audi models such as the e-tron SUV, e-tron GT and RS e-tron GT.

    “To date, Porsche is the only global brand to have sold in any relevant number a fully electric-powered car in the Philippines — an achievement which Audi is expected to duplicate this year,” PGA Cars shared.

    Further, the local premium vehicle distributor said that it will expand the Taycan range and is eyeing to bring electrified Bentley models within the year.

    Relatedly, PGA Cars is putting up charging facilities in key destinations to complement the residential charging solutions preferred by the majority of electric vehicle owners. International studies have shown that at least 80 percent of electric vehicles are charged at home.
