Ayala Land activating 20 EV charging stations in Luzon
Ayala Land is living up to its commitment to sustainable and responsible property development by opening electric vehicle charging hubs to its offices, estates, hotels, and industrial centers.
The conglomerate is activating 20 Electric Vehicle (EV) fast-charging stations across seven cities in Luzon. These areas include Ayala Land Estates (One Ayala, Circuit Makati, Nuvali Laguna, Vermosa Cavite, and Vertis North); Ayala Land Offices (Tower 2 Ayala Triangle, Solaris One, and Baguio Technohub); Ayala Malls (Greenbelt Makati, Glorietta Makati, Alabang Town Center, and Trinoma); Ayala Hotels (Seda, BGC); and at the Laguna Technohub.
Currently, the charging hubs use 22 kW AC and 60 kW DC fast chargers (for One Ayala) with Type 2 and GB/T connectors. These 22 kW AC and 60 kW DC fast chargers will soon allow EV users to fully charge their vehicles as fast as one to two hours (depending on the vehicle used). For now, the use of these charging hubs is free for EV owners, but soon there will be cashless payment options such as GCash and BPI.
To provide a real-world demonstration of how a charging ecosystem is already in place for all electric vehicles sold in the Philippines, Ayala Land tapped another Ayala Group company AC Motors and put the multi-awarded Kia EV6 on display at the program launch.
“Through this, we want to further inspire the car-buying public to explore a cleaner and more sustainable form of transport. The arrival of the EV6, and the Ayala Land Electric Vehicle Charging Hub, are proof of our commitment to an electric future” said Manny Aligada, president of Kia Philippines.
With over 20 charging stations to be activated throughout Luzon, Ayala Land’s comprehensive charging architecture will support the charging needs of locally available electric vehicles, which keeps with the company’s thrust and long-term commitment toward carbon neutrality and alignment with the global and local directive to shift to electric vehicles.
