UNIOIL Petroleum Philippines, Inc. has launched on Wednesday its second electric vehicle charging station at its outlet along the northbound side of EDSA in Guadalupe in the hopes that it will encourage more drivers to switch from their fuel-powered cars.

Unioil became the first petroleum company in the Philippines to launch an e-vehicle (EV) charging facility at its fueling station along Congressional Ave. Extension in Quezon City on Nov. 27, 2017.

Even though there are no electric vehicles currently using its charging stations, Unioil is anticipating demand to spike in the future.
