BYD Expands To Vismin With Cebu Dealership

ACMobility, Ayala Corporation’s mobility business arm, expands its electric vehicle mobility network with the opening of BYD Cebu.

BYD Cebu is a full-service dealership owned and operated by Global Star Motors Corporation. It is the fourth BYD dealership in the country, and the first one to operate outside of Metro Manila.

Located along A.S. Fortuna Street, Mandaue City’s famed automotive row, BYD Cebu’s 2,155-square meter facility adheres to BYD Global Brand Identity standards. It has a dedicated service reception, customer lounge, two negotiation rooms, new car release bay, and display space that accommodates up to six BYD electric vehicles.

Meanwhile, ensuring world-class service for every BYD customer, BYD Cebu has a seven-bay service center that can handle the maintenance needs, albeit minimal, of BYD electric vehicles. A parts and accessories section completes the BYD customer experience for Cebuanos visiting the showroom.

The new facility will also soon become an ACMobility charging location with AC and DC charging points for BYD and other electric vehicle owners to charge their EVs while in the city. This is in addition to the newly-opened 22-kW AC charging points located in Ayala Center Cebu.

“BYD’s rapid expansion in the country provides more Filipinos with access to its technologically superior, efficient, and ultra-safe line-up of battery electric vehicles,” says Jaime Alfonso Zobel de Ayala, CEO of ACMobility.

“As we take this innovative technology to more regions, it is the hardworking individuals in our dealerships who answer our customers' questions, attend to their needs, and, more importantly, support and reinforce the BYD EV ownership experience. We welcome Edward Vincent Onglatco and Global Star Motors Corporation to our fast-expanding network of BYD electric vehicle dealerships nationwide,” adds Zobel.

Antonio “Toti” Zara III, Head of Automotive Retail and Distribution at ACMobility, expresses his excitement about BYD Cebu’s inauguration. “The adoption of electric vehicles in the Visayas region begins with the inauguration of BYD Cebu,” says Zara.

“The rapidly growing BYD dealership network in the country reflects the public’s growing demand for the new age of sustainable mobility. BYD Cebu is our fourth active dealership, and by the end of the year, we will have 20 BYD dealerships in key cities nationwide. We continue to make the democratization of electric vehicles possible by making BYD electric vehicles readily available to more Filipinos nationwide, along with the supporting infrastructure that makes the experience a seamless transition from traditional internal combustion-engine cars. We are confident BYD Cebu will be a key player in this endeavor,” adds Zara.

James Ng, Managing Director of BYD Philippines and Singapore, likewise applauds the formal opening of BYD Cebu. “BYD electric vehicles and the technology that make them so desirable in over 70 countries are now here in Cebu,” says Ng. “We have heard a lot about this crucial city in the Visayas and its affinity with mobility, and today, we begin to share with Cebuanos the brand’s promise of delivering a sustainable mobility alternative through electric vehicles. We welcome everyone to visit BYD Cebu and experience the future today,” says Ng.

Edward Vincent Onglatco, President and CEO of Global Star Motors Corporation, highlights his company’s commitment to delivering quality service to nurture customer confidence and build lasting relationships between customers and the BYD brand in Cebu.

“With the growing urban population and bustling economy, Cebu is the perfect backdrop for BYD’s electric vehicle range, which embodies urban sustainability,” says Onglatco.

“We would like to thank Ayala Corporation, especially ACMobility and BYD Cars Philippines, and of course BYD itself for believing in us. Rest assured, the BYD brand is in safe and very capable hands here in Cebu,” Onglatco adds.

BYD Cebu is open from 8:30 AM to 6 PM Mondays to Fridays, and from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. The service department is open from 8 AM to 6 PM Monday to Friday, and 8 AM to 12 NN every Saturday. Customers may reach the showroom at + 63 32 343 3333.
