Tackling sustainability with trikes in the Philippines

LinkedIn +

Elaia Green Vehicles has announced a range of electric trikes, offering larger passenger capacity, less noise pollution, and longer battery life.

Elaia Green Vehicles is one of the Philippines’ largest manufacturer of hybrid and electric vehicles. It is owned by Ronaldo Puno, former Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary of the Philippines.

Tricycles and motorcycles account for more than 55% of the registered motor vehicles in the country, and among the 5,175,303 combined tricycles and motorcycles, around 1.2 million are tricycles (23%).

Fast-charging collaboration

The company has invested in building a network of charging stations, a move which it says will encourage wider adoption of electric trikes as a sustainable transportation solution.

Elaia Green Vehicles has also entered into partnership with City Savings Bank for a joint motorcycle loan and e-trike venture, a collaboration which allows individuals to better acquire the e-trikes.

“With our strategic partnerships and commitment to expanding charging infrastructure, we aim to make electric trikes more accessible to a wider audience, paving the way for a greener and more liveable future,” said Puno.
