Test Driving A BYD May Win You A Trip To Palawan

Oh no, they didn’t. In what could be one of the more tone-deaf promos this year, Chinese carmaker BYD (through ACMobility) is raffling off monthly trips to Palawan until January 2025.

The destination for their Drive and Dive Test Drive to Win Promo is Seda Lio Palawan—sounds innocent enough, right? But you know what else is in Palawan? Ayungin Shoal—the hotly contested territory in the middle of our dispute with China. So yeah, a Chinese carmaker is raffling off a two-night experience in a province with some territorial dispute. Yeah. They just went there. As far as we know, jet skis aren’t included.

What’s worse is that participants have to publicly post their BYD test drive experience on their respective social media accounts—Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok with some provided hashtags. Likely, using #AyunginShoal will get you disqualified.

Anyway, check out the official press release below if you’re still interested to join this promo:
ACMobility, the official distributor of BYD electric vehicles and services in the Philippines, offers the general public the chance to win a trip to El Nido, Palawan monthly through its Drive and Dive Test Drive to Win Promo.

From June 1, 2024, until January 31, 2025, the test drive promotion that is already ongoing in all BYD dealerships nationwide includes the opportunity to win a free round-trip flight between Manila and El Nido along with a two-night experience of bliss and relaxation at Seda Lio Palawan for two. One nationwide winner will be drawn each month.

To qualify for the promotion, Filipinos 18 years of age or older who have a valid non-professional driver’s license and who are current vehicle owners are invited to visit the nearest BYD showroom, event, or mall display and test drive their preferred BYD electric vehicle. 

The campaign includes test drives of the 2024 Top 3 World Urban Car of the Year Finalist and 2023 Japanese Electric Vehicle of the Year, the BYD Dolphin urban electric hatchback; the top-selling BYD Atto 3 electric subcompact crossover; the BYD Han flagship electric sports sedan; and the BYD Tang seven-seat mid-size electric SUV.

Additionally, participants must publicly share their test-drive experience on Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok with the hashtags #bydcarsphilippines and #BYDDriveandDive.

Employees of ACMobility, its third-party agencies, and participating BYD dealerships, along with their relatives up to the second degree of consanguinity or affinity, are disqualified from joining.
