The Department of Energy and the Asian Development Bank recently unveiled for public inspection the mock-up prototype of the electric tricycle for the much-awaited $500 Million ETrike Project.
Among the first to view the prototype were members of the Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines, led by its president Rommel Juan.
“Our next initiative will be to schedule a technical meeting with the DOE to discuss further the design, safety and functional elements of the ETrike. We also want to discuss with them our inputs on manufacturing concerns, mass production, localization efforts as well as clearing up the payment flow for the project. We would like to maintain open communication lines with the DOE and we are happy that they have been very receptive to the concerns of the would-be end users, suppliers, assemblers and other players in the ETrike industry,” Juan said.
