WM Motor Drops Price Of W5 EV By P300K

After Nissan Philippines dropped the price of the all-electric Leaf, WM Motor Philippines has done the same with their Weltmeister W5.

During its launch last year, the WM W5 was made available with a price of P 2,548,000. However, thanks to the passing of Executive Order 12, the price of the all-electric SUV is now at P 2,248,000—a reduction of P 300,000.

Granted that this price reduction isn’t as drastic as Nissan Philippines with the Leaf, the WM W5 does have a stronger motor making 217 horsepower and 315 Nm. Its larger ternary lithium battery—52-kWh—means a longer range of 400 kilometers (about 100 kilometers more than the Leaf).

Billed as an interactive car, the W5 will automatically unlock (and lock) itself for as long as the key is within proximity of the vehicle. Once inside, passengers are treated to a roomy interior with a 15.6-inch touchscreen infotainment system (it doubles as the monitor for the 360-degree camera). It also boasts of a panoramic sunroof, dual zone climate control, a built-in dashcam, a N95 air filtration system, and even a smart UV light that kills bacteria and viruses in the car when it’s charging.

Speaking about charging, the W5 can be charged using a conventional 220-volt outlet (Level 1) or can be optioned with an exclusive WM home charger (Level 2) which WM Motor Philippine technicians can help install. It can also accommodate a DC fast charger using the GB/T standard.
