Heads-Up: There Will Be An EV Eco Run Happening This November 6


The Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines or EVAP is organizing the first-ever EV eco-run this Saturday, November 6 at 8 AM.

The on-ground event will be mounted with the support of the association’s sub-group, EV Owners Society (EVOS), a startup community of EV owners in the country that was established in January 2021. With that, a number of electric vehicles will ply a couple of major thoroughfares in Metro Manila.

The event will gather registered participants—EV owners in Metro Manila and nearby areas—for a driving tour that is aimed to demonstrate support to a proposed legislation (now lodged in the bicameral conference committee) promoting the use of EVs in the country.

“EVAP is unrelentingly spearheading the push towards the use of EVs so the country could do its part in the rising international drive towards a greener planet,” said EVAP President Edmund Araga. “In our little way, we aim to stage a show of force to gain the backing of our honorable legislators so we could earn a major milestone in our proposed switch to air pollution-free and energy-efficient EVs.”

Participants to the upcoming one-day eco-run will drive along assigned routes to complete required activities. There will be two loops that they can take: North Loop (40k km/h speed) running from the Land Rover Showroom on EDSA, San Juan going to UniOil EDSA Guadalupe – DOE Avenue; South Loop (15 km/h) starting from Nissan Pasong Tamo Extension in Makati City site going to BYD (southwest corner Buendia/Dian St) and then to Nissan Otis, and finally ending at UniOil Guadalupe station – DOE Avenue.

There are checkpoints assigned per station where participants are required to submit activity passports containing information from the registration form and a list of EV charging stations.
