MANILA, Philippines – Ayala’s AC Industrial Technology Holdings Incorporated (AC Industrials) officially launched Maxus Philippines on Wednesday, June 5, boasting of vehicles with massive space and reasonable price points.
Maxus is the 6th automotive brand under AC Industrials, joining Honda, Isuzu, Volkswagen, Kia, and KTM.
It is a brand from China, but traces its roots to the United Kingdom, over a century ago.
Maxus Philippines general manager Reggie See said the company is aiming to capture segments, particularly families and companies, which need to carry lots of passengers.
See said they are aiming for just over 500 units to be sold in 2019, considering they launched it during the 2nd quarter.
“We aim to double or triple that next year,” he said.
Price: P1.7 million
The Maxus G10 is a 9-seater van that offers spacious interior amenities, highlighted by adjustable seating for all seats.
It also features a 7-inch touchscreen radio with USB, Bluetooth, and 6-speaker system, 220-volt power supply, and front and rear air-conditioning systems.
It is powered by a Euro4 1.9-liter diesel engine equipped with a VGT charger, and promises to endure long road trips with its high-power yet fuel-efficient output.
Price: P1.29 million
The V80 Transport variant offers an 18-passenger capacity and is ideal for the shuttle service business.
Maxus V80 Comfort
