PHILIPPINES BYD is one step closer towards realising its vision of bringing its full suite of new energy transport vehicles to the Philippines. The development came as BYD signed a mutual cooperation agreement with Columbian Motors Corporation (CMC) to export the Shenzhen-based company’s pure electric buses and pure electric trucks to the country.

Liu Xueliang, General Manager of BYD Asia Pacific Auto Sales Division and Jose Chavez Alvarez, Governor of Palawan, were among the dignitaries present at the signing ceremony. The event also saw the signing of a separate agreement to deliver 10 BYD K9s and 12 BYD T4s to CMC by mid-February 2018.

“Air pollution and traffic congestion are twin problems many cities around the world are faced with,” said Liu Xueliang. “We are very excited to bring more of our solutions to the Philippines to create a cleaner living environment for everyone.”
