Kia EV6 To Take Full Advantage Of Ayala Land's EV Charging Stations


With over 20 charging stations to be activated throughout Luzon, Ayala Land’s comprehensive charging architecture will support the charging needs of locally available electric vehicles, marking the beginning of the Philippine EV revolution. From installing one of the first integrated EV charging systems in Ayala Malls, Ayala Land takes the next step by bringing the chargers to its offices, estates, hotels, and industrial centers.

Kia, distributed by AC Motors, an affiliate of Ayala Corporation, will take advantage of this development as they set to bring in the award-winning EV6 in the first quarter of 2023. With its long-range capability, 800-volt ultra-fast charging architecture, and distinctive styling, it will be launched in the first quarter of 2023.

With this program, Ayala Land reinforces its commitment to sustainable and responsible property development with the activation of 20 Electric Vehicle (EV) fast-charging stations across seven cities in Luzon. These 22-KW AC and 60-KW DC fast chargers will soon allow EV users to fully charge their vehicles as fast as one to two hours (depending on vehicle used). This is in keeping with the company’s thrust and long-term commitment toward carbon neutrality and alignment with the global and local directive to shift to electric vehicles.

The EV6 is Kia’s first car to be based on the company’s dedicated new platform for battery electric vehicles (BEVs). It is also the recipient of the European Car of the Year 2022 Award and a 5-Star Euro NCAP rating. “Seeing the EV6 in an actual charging hub, and being shown how it will be fully supported by a charging architecture, will further cement trust in electric vehicles,” says Kia Philippines President Manny Aligada. “Through this, we want to further inspire the car-buying public to explore a cleaner and more sustainable form of transport. The arrival of the EV6, and the Ayala Land Electric Vehicle Charging Hub, are proof of our commitment to an electric future.”

The EV6 GT-Line offers a fully-electric, zero-emission powertrain configuration with a long-range (77.4 kWh) high-voltage battery pack. The EV6 can travel over 500 kilometers on a single charge (based on EPA rating). This range is worth highlighting, as the Ayala Land Charging Hubs that will be rolled out throughout Luzon will be strategically located so as to ensure that EV users will have a charging station nearby.

The Ayala Land Vehicle Charging Hubs will be located in Ayala Land Estates (One Ayala, Circuit Makati, Nuvali Laguna, Vermosa Cavite, and Vertis North); Ayala Land Offices (Tower 2 Ayala Triangle, Solaris One, and Baguio Technohub); Ayala Malls (Greenbelt Makati, Glorietta Makati, Alabang Town Center, and Trinoma); Ayala Hotels (Seda, BGC); and at the Laguna Technohub.

Currently, the charging hubs use 22 KW AC and 60 KW DC fast chargers (for One Ayala) with CCS Type 2 and GB/T connectors. For vehicles that do not have CCS Type 2 and GB/T connectors, the chargers can still be used with a proper adapter. Currently, these charging hubs are a free service to EV owners.
