    Instead of the Tucson, this one looks more promising...

    Almost like a Tucson but pure electric (both pure intended)...now if only this country will be getting them is another story

    It’s already in the Hyundai showroom in Quezon ave. The Kona.

    2.3M is not a joke, and that's for the base version ha. I saw the charging status on the dash, the battery was at 47% and you need 23 hours more to fully charge the car. This was at MIAS 2019. I'd gander it's directly plugged in to a 240v outlet and you have an option to purchase a fast charger.

    Range is 450km per full charge

    Review-wise, it's taking praise for a good first execution of an electric car by Hyundai. Otherwise, I'd still wait for government regulation here in PH to finally take private EVs seriously.

    If the government is really serious about reducing air pollution, they should allow a lower import tax for EV & hybrid vehicles (cars, trucks, scooters, bicycles, bus, etc.).

    I had 3 meetings that involves the government, which are related to electric vehicles, or related to electricity in the past 6 months. All of them seems to be money driven, and not for the sake of the environment. Saving the environment seems secondary(no surprises here). I'm fine with that, cause it's better than nothing.

    Was in tagaytay pre Holy Week. I was surprised to see electric tricycles on the road. Surprisingly, the electric tricycle can deal with uphill climb with passengers on board. One that didn’t change was the poor driving of some operators.

    A sales rep told me if I remember correctly is 6 to 7M....or is it 9 -11M.
    E Pace is under 4M. Diesel though.

    Mm....it will take another 5 to 8 years before EVs becomes rationally priced. Price per kilowatt hour is the key....lowering it significantly with new battery technology.

    Right now, it is usd 145 per kwh. One estimate is it will fall below 50 usd per kwh by 2025. From what I've read, EVs will achieve price parity with conventional combustion vehicles once the usd 100 pkwh is achieved.

    Most likely the batteries that China will use will come from our country. Tesla's batteries are manufactured here.


    My contacts said that E Trikes are now starting to roll out in several cities around the country in small batches. I've only seen it in Cebu though. Can any Philmuggers from Cebu attest to this?

    Mm..I thought Tesla EV batteries are manufactured in-house at their gigafactories.

    Could be a large portion is manufactured here. Cause according to the meeting I went to, labor here is cheap, and the professionalism is high and that's why their choice was the Philippines.

    ...but then, it could be a small portion too.

    Mm...I wish Tesla would sell 220 volts Tesla powerwalls. Great alternative to gensets.
