E- Jeepney In Makati

E-jeepney (electronic jeepney), the 1st in our country and in South East Asia was road tested in Makati yesterday. It runs using a battery that will be charged for 8 hours using 220V. There's no fuel needed so it is environment friendly. It is powered by 5 horsepower electric motor engine. It is a project of Green Peace and is supported by gov.t of Makati. It is only pricey and costs around Php400,000.00 - Php 100,000.00 per unit. Ordinary jeepney drivers cannot afford to buy these. If only the cost is lower i think many will buy and eventually the ordinary jeep will be replaced by this.
