AC Motors is now ACMobility (yes, no space)

Ayala Corporation rebrands its motoring arm

Until recently, the automotive business of Ayala Corporation was known as AC Motors, which is the distributor of Kia, Volkswagen, and BYD passenger cars in the country (apparently, Maxus has been dropped from the lineup). The company has rebranded itself as ACMobility—yes, without a space—to reflect its transformation into an end-to-end mobility provider, covering services, infrastructure, and eventually, digital platforms.

AC has gone full-speed in developing electric-vehicle charging stations, which are now under ACMobility. Currently, there are 33 stations across 16 Ayala Land locations. And the plan is to add 100 more in at least 40 locations within the year.

“At ACMobility, we aspire to be the leading mobility provider for all by the end of this decade,” said ACMobility CEO Jaime Alfonso Zobel de Ayala. “By calling ourselves a mobility provider, we seek to go beyond simply selling vehicles. Our goal is to provide value in the whole ecosystem, which includes building a new electric-vehicle platform and providing people with different options that enable their mobility in life.”

Of course, there’s more to mobility than motoring. So, we look forward to seeing what innovative solutions ACMobility has in store for us.
