What is the PUV Modernization program and what does it mean for you? Let’s talk about the changes we’re going to start seeing with the iconic Philippine Jeepney!
The first thing that comes to mind with the PUV Modernization program is Electric Jeepneys, right? But there’s really so much more to this program from the Department of Transportation – Philippines
Aside from the E-Jeepneys, there will also be those with Euro 4 diesel engines. Those are modern engines which are highly-efficient and much better for the environment.
There are safety requirements like loading passengers from the side, instead of the back of the vehicle and also dashcams and onboard CCTV.
There’s also convenience factors like support for electronic payments via beep card
The electric Jeepney I showed at the beginning of this video is from Philippine Utility Vehicle Inc – Phuv with their battery system and powertrain coming from QEV Philippines
Something I forgot to mention in the video is that QEV have already struck a deal with Shell Philippines to install e-vehicle chargers in their gas stations!
