In his message, MMPC President and CEO Mutsuhiro Oshikiri said, “We are again honored to turn over our very own Outlander PHEV, i-MiEV and EV Quick Charging Station to another Philippine government agency, this time, to the Department of Trade and Industry. We firmly believe that these units and quick charging station, with the assistance of our friends from DTI, will further encourage the public to consider using electric vehicles.”
