AC Motors, one of the country's largest multi-brand automotive and motorcycle groups, recently inaugurated its latest dealership. But unlike your regular showroom that only houses one brand, the company's newest location houses 4 automotive brands and 2 motorcycle marques.
Now open to the public is AC Motors Centrale facility in Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Taguig. Situated on a 3,000-sqm space at 932 28th street corner 9th Avenue, it showcases AC Motors’ four-wheel marques Honda, Isuzu, Volkswagen, and Kia and its two motorcycle brands KTM and Husqvarna. AC Motors Centrale provides a one-stop-shop right at the center of Metro Manila’s commercial district and manifests the Ayala group’s readiness to move Filipino motorists toward the future of mobility.
Present during the inauguration yesterday were key members from AC Motors, AC Industrials (the parent company of AC Motors), as well as executives from Honda, Isuzu, Volkswagen, Kia, KTM, and Husqvarna. These included ACI president and CEO Arthur “Art” Tan, AC Motors Automobile Group president Antonio “Toti” Zara III, Isuzu PH president Noboru Murakami, Honda Cars Philppines Inc. president Masahiko Nakamura, Kia PH president Manny Aligada, Volkswagen PH president Felipe Estrella, KTM and Husqvarna PH president Dino Santos, and COO of Iconic Dealership Inc. Bob Palanca.
“AC Industrials" automobile and motorcycle distribution and retail businesses have been an integral part of the Ayala group for the last 30 years, enabling AC Motors to provide mobility solutions for the Filipino people. AC Motors Centrale showcases the combined strengths and synergies of our automobile and motorcycle portfolio and will play a pivotal role as we enter the next stage of mobility, electrification,” said Tan.
AC Motors Centrale highlights not only each brand’s strengths and product rosters, but will also be a showcase for AC Motors’ new ventures.
“What sets AC Motors Centrale apart, aside from being able to house all our brands under a single roof, and giving customers the ability to choose the vehicle that best suits their needs from a wide range of models, is that we take this experience to the next level by offering AC Motors’ new used car program, AC Motors Trade+, which opens up a whole new world of enterprise and ownership opportunities for our customers,” shared Zara.
AC Motors Trade+ is an auction-based service for new buyers and existing owners that streamlines the entire process of selling used cars, offering just a five-day turnaround time from inspection to auction, and payment. Customers would also be able to trade in vehicles from any brand, not just those sold by AC Motors. AC Motors is the first dealer group in the Philippines to launch such a used car program, which is powered by an online automotive portal.
AC Motors Centrale is now open to the public from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily. Customers can book their appointments with any of the brands through (02) 8558-5888, or by logging on to acmotors.com.ph. They can also follow the AC Motors Facebook page to get updated with the latest news and promos.
