BYD Philippines wants to democratize electric car ownership among Filipinos. But for that to happen, the brand needs to be present in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

That’s why the company has partnered with Image Davao Mobility Corporation to set up BYD Davao. During the media inauguration, we were given a tour of the dealership.

BYD Davao is located on J.P. Laurel Avenue in Davao City. It houses a six-car showroom along with a customer lounge, a negotiation room, an experience wall, and a new-car release area. Behind the showroom is the service area, which can accommodate up to four vehicles.

If you’re wondering where to charge outside of the dealership, SM Lanang Premier and Ayala Malls Abreeza have charging stations.

Although the dealer hasn’t been formally inaugurated (as of this writing), it is already open for business. For more information, you can visit BYD Davao via Facebook.
