    “Hyundai Motor Company was founded in 1967, and with partners like the Philippines, we are now one of the world’s largest automotive groups. Our journey has been an exciting one so far. We are proud and very grateful for the successes we had. However, we are always striving to do better,” Kim said.

    Republic of Korea to the Philippines Ambassador Lee Sang-hwa lauded the utilization of the electric vehicle to help the public.

    “The Philippines is one of the nations most vulnerable to climate change because of its geographical location and composition. So, the electric vehicles for public use revealed today by Makati City is commendable. Makati’s future-oriented approach aligns with the national government’s plan to increase the number of EVs in the country. It also fits well into Hyundai Motor’s pioneering path to carbon neutrality for the benefit of the future generation. To this end, Korea is more than prepared to partner with the Philippines in the field of eco-friendly transportation,” he explained.
