Metro Pacific bets EV will snowball

Published

on

The Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) plans to put up electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in all of its toll expressways to revive the once-booming EV.

“We all know this technology is still fresh… No investor is investing or buying EV or e-cars but we will pave the way (by) installing (at least one) EV charging station in our expressways,” MPT Mobility vice president for Business Development Mark de Leon said in a virtual presser on Thursday.

“We will also pursue installing charging stations in parking lots. There’s an opportunity where office workers can charge in parking lots,” he added.

De Leon is a former Department of Transportation Assistant Secretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure.

The MPTC, on Thursday, launched MPT Mobility, a venture that provides mobility solutions using digital technology. The spin-off follows months of preparation and will house all of MPTC’s non-toll related enterprises.
