Caltex To Open First EV Charging Station In The Philippines

Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), marketer of the Caltex brand of fuels and lubricants, is bringing a new service station concept that will include its Caltex autoPro brand of auto service workshops and even EV charging stations.

An agreement, which was signed with Ford Bonifacio Development Corporation (FBDC) will see this new service station concept soon rise along 32nd Street, Crescent Park West District, BGC, Taguig City.

The Caltex BGC station is patterned closely to Caltex’s revamped service stations in Malaysia (lead photo) and Singapore. Notably, it will provide electric vehicle (EV) charging facilities.

The station construction will also utilize friendly materials, including paints and adhesives with low or zero volatile organic compound (VOC) content. Furthermore, the station will harness solar panels and energy-efficient LED lights, to help reduce its overall energy consumption.

Water conservation will also be achieved through an innovative rainwater collection system. The use of a lush living wall will enhance aesthetics. Dedicated bicycle racks will also be available, welcoming cyclists to take a break and recharge at the station

Meanwhile, the flagship Caltex autoPro will feature a unique look, tailored to fit the BGC market. It will have a complete offering to consumers availing of workshop services as well as a premium customer lounge. Stepping into the Caltex autoPro workshop, customers will be greeted with modern and well-equipped facilities that instantly put customers at ease.

FBDC Chief Operating Officer Alfie Reyes said, “We are delighted to finalize this partnership with Chevron Philippines. We are aligned in the vision of having a world-class service station that promotes friendly technologies along with traditional fuels. At BGC, we believe in innovation, sustainability and adaptability and we feel that the addition of a flagship Caltex station here adds significant value to the estate, our locators, and our motorists.”

Billy Liu, CPI country chairman, said that “we believe that this opportunity to combine the complementary strengths of both CPI and FBDC will enable us to provide motorists with superior fuel and customer experience, especially those in highly urbanized commercial districts such as BGC.

Mr. Liu further mentioned that “this service station is a testament to our dedication in elevating the customer experience while growing our retail network in key locations nationwide, Caltex aims to always making every journey, easier, better, and happier for our motorists.”


  1. At least they are starting while Petron has not made a move yet which is more important because of their intensive network of gas stations.

  2. Just keep on opening EV charging stations so more and more will adopt.
