MPT South Showcases its First Fully Electric Security Patrol Vehicle at MIAS 2022

Metro Pacific Tollways South (MPT South), a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), the toll road development arm of Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) showcases its first fully electric patrol vehicle at the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) currently being held at the World Trade Center from April 7-10, 2022.


MPT South’s e-patrol vehicle is among the first fully electronic SUVs in the country. Powered by a permanent magnet synchronous motor, the EV pickup truck can run at 400km in a single 45-minute charging. Aside from the acquisition of this powerful e-vehicle, the company plans to transition its entire fleet of service vehicles to EVs, as each one reaches attrition. 

The company has also put up an e-charging station at its headquarters’ MPT South Hub located at Brgy. Alapan II-B, Imus Cavite. The same headquarters has been lauded recently with a LEED Gold Certification by the US Green Building Council (USGBC). 

“The move to transition to EVs is in alignment with the company’s objective of helping decarbonize the transport sector, and turn one of its expressways, particularly the 45km Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) into a green highway.” said MPTC Chief Finance Officer and Senior Executive Sponsor for Sustainability, Christopher C. Lizo.

CALAX had begun integrating energy-efficient and resource-saving technologies while maintaining the high standard of road safety features along CALAX. Existing toll plazas of the operational sections of CALAX were equipped with rooftop solar panels that power its own operations. Roadway lighting systems use LED fixtures, thereby improving energy efficiency.

“These sustainable practices are also being done across the MPTC group; implementing infrastructure projects with the least disruption to the communities and the environment”, added Lizo.

MPTC holds the concessions for the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX), the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), the Subic-Clark Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), the NLEX Connector Road, and the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) in Cebu.
