(From L-R): Mr. Cecil Capacete, HMPH Managing Director, Mr. Dongwook Lee, HMPH President, Mr. Hans Sy Jr., SM Engineering Design & Development Corp. President, Mr. Steven Tan, Shopping Center Management Corporation President, Mr. Bien Mateo, SM Senior Vice President for Operations.

Hyundai Motor Philippines, Inc. (HMPH)  revealed plans for six (6) Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations in partnership with SM Supermalls this 2023. At the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) last July 20, the brand formally set off its newest project with the country’s largest developer, operator and owner of world-class shopping centers.

“Our global vision is based on the belief that we, as an automaker, have to be more proactive when responding to climate change compared to companies in other industries. So Hyundai Motor Philippines is very fortunate to be aligned with a company whose approach to sustainability is as holistic as ours. We are glad that we get to contribute to one of the four main pillars of their green movement which is energy,” says Mr. Cecil Capacete, Managing Director. “A key component to supporting society’s adoption of cleaner mobility solutions is through public awareness. And we are one with the SM group on their mission to assure customers, who are looking to transition to an electrified lifestyle, wider access to charging facilities outside of their homes”.

In the country, HMPH has begun laying the foundation to this journey through the establishment of at least 10 certified Hyundai EV dealers. These not only serve as the official retailers and service providers of the IONIQ 5 and new IONIQ 6 but also equipped with both AC and DC chargers should owners need. Now in addition to these are the following locations:
