Mandaluyong City has just received 20 electric trikes, these vehicles will (hopefully) gradually take the place of highly polluting home-made gasoline tricycle.
There is 3.5 million of these tricycles in the Philippines and they produce 10 million tons of CO ² per year ...
Emissions from the transport sector represent 30% of the country’s pollution and about 80% of Manila pollution, clearly highlighting to need of a solution in urban areas…
For 20,000 electric trikes introduced into the streets of Manila, fuel economy has been calculated to 100,000 liters of gasoline each day!
The company that develops the e-trikes is funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) as part of a project to introduce greener and more efficient transport solutions in the Philippines.
Currently under study the use of these electric three wheelers in urban areas should be extended by next year.
