AC Motors, one of the Philippines’ largest multi-brand automotive and motorcycle groups, inaugurated on June 28, 2022 the AC Motors Centrale facility in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
AC Motors’ automobile group president Antonio “Toti” Zara III said the new auto hub carries 4 of AC Motors’ popular brands under one roof – Honda, Isuzu, Volkswagen and Kia.
“I am proud to announce that we have a mobility destination, located at the center of one of the country’s biggest and fastest growing business districts. AC Motors Centrale is a one-stop-shop that houses our brands under a single roof, giving customers the ability to choose the vehicle that best suits their needs from a wide range of models,” he said.
The new auto hub sits on a 3,000-sqm space at 932 28th street corner 9th Avenue, right at the center of BGC and offering a seamless digital customer experience as one of the most digitized dealer networks.
About 45 percent of AC Motors’ current sales have been coursed through its many online portals. It has recently launched online financing application tool and highly digitized processes further enable a transparent and efficient experience for our customers.
“What sets AC Motors Centrale apart, aside from being able to house all our brands under a single roof, and giving customers the ability to choose the vehicle that best suits their needs from a wide range of models, is that we take this experience to the next level by offering AC Motors’ new used car program, AC Motors Trade+, which opens up a whole new world of enterprise and ownership opportunities for our customers,” Zara said.
AC Motors Trade+ is an auction-based service for new buyers and existing owners that streamlines the entire process of selling used cars, offering just a five-day turnaround time from inspection, to auction, and payment.
Customers would also be able to trade in vehicles from any brand, not just those sold by AC Motors. AC Motors is the first dealer group in the Philippines to launch a used car program, which is powered by an online automotive portal with one of the country’s largest digital audiences.
The auto facility also offers benefits and membership privileges through the AC Motors Fleet program, Ayala Rewards Circle and the Ayala Enterprise Circle for small and medium enterprises and large corporations.
“AC Motors Centrale showcases the combined strengths and synergies of our automobile and motorcycle portfolio and will play a pivotal role as we enter the next stage of mobility, electrification. This venue will become a part of our sustainable electric vehicle ecosystem, allowing our customers to comfortably enjoy the EV models which we will soon be introducing,” Zara said.
AC Motors is a portfolio company of AC Industrials (ACI), Ayala Corporation’s holding and investment company for industrial technology, manufacturing, and vehicle distribution and retail interests.
