MANILA, Philippines – Mitsubishi Motors Phils. Corp. (MMPC) announced last week an Electric Vehicle (EV) cooperation agreement with the Department of Energy (DOE) and Meralco, which mainly covers the use of Mitsubishi Motors’ zero emission electric car, the i-MiEV (i-Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle), for evaluation and demonstration purposes.

MMPC will be the first car manufacturer to bring in a pure electric car to the country.

This collaboration will entail MMPC lending demo cars of i-MiEV to both DOE and Meralco for the purpose of studying EV’s behaviors and performance when utilized in Metro Manila in various conditions, and also to examine the impact to power systems when an EV is charged.

Industrial design students’ E-trike design places 3rd in national contest

Industrial design students’ E-trike design places 3rd in national contest | Clean Air-Philippines | Scoop.it

When industrial design students Maria Cielo M. Rogero and Norriele Ace Serrano from Mapúa Institute of Technology were conceptualizing their design for an electric tricycle (e-trike), there was no need for them to go far to look for an inspiration. Right in the busy highways of Metro Manila are the passenger jeepneys plying in and out of its streets.

 

Rogero and Serrano sketched their design for a three-wheeled, seven-seater electric vehicle based on this most common mode of transportation in the Philippines. They adopted the jeepneys’ box-type frame and stretched the back of the vehicle to accommodate six passengers, a deviation from the traditional tricycle design. Like any other passenger jeepney, it has an open doorway located at the rear of the vehicle.

This city government’s anti-pollution campaign has taken a more aggressive step with the recent procurement of modern equipment to check air quality and the plan to purchase a bio-reactor to boost the oxygen level of the Naga River at any given time.

City Environment and Natural Resources Officer Oscar Orozco said that based on the 22% increase in air pollutants recorded during the previous two years by the Air Quality Monitoring Station of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) within the confines of the city, the challenge now is to arrest further pollutant gas emissions into the airspace and water.
