    Because most off-the shelf electricals and accessories (headlights, infotainment, horns) are still based on 12V ... as to why they don't just use a converter ... go figure ...

    Why Do Electric Cars Still Use 12-Volt Batteries?

    So I think need ka pa din mag replace every 3 to 5 yrs sa battery nito.
    Nagtaka nga ako why need pa ding nung battery na yun eh hindi ba kaya ng main EV battery yung pag support ng ignition at autolock feature ng auto?
    Hindi masyado knowledgeable yung naka assign, from DOE kasi sila, nandun lang sila sa mall to promote/educate public ways of saving energy.
    For most EV's, battery life is 8-10 years.

    since very minimal or almost non-existent pa ang mainstream EV sa Philipinas it would be nice to see how in actual tatagal ang batteries dito sa atin with the heat humidity etc.

    tumagal naman yung Prius and BYD E6 sa Singapore as Taxi and Grab, so wala sya dapat issue dito... not unless di kaya ng casa maintenance nya.

    Hyundai Motor Philippines brings the Korean brand back to PH market | Visor

    Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI)—it will be in charge of distributing the brand’s commercial vehicles (trucks and buses), while HMPH will focus on the passenger cars.
    This July, expect to see the Creta (a B-segment crossover), the new Tucson, the Staria, the Santa Fe and the Palisade entering our market, followed by a brand-new MPV model that will compete with the likes of the Toyota Avanza and the Mitsubishi Xpander next year.

    The Creta and the new MPV will be sourced from Hyundai’s Indonesia plant, while the other models will be coming from Korea. Finally, the Reina subcompact sedan will be axed, and the Venue will now come from India.
    the brand will skip hybrid models and go straight to full EVs, like the Ioniq 5. But expect to wait for a bit, as the manufacturer is still conducting a feasibility study and waiting for the country’s infrastructure to catch up once the EV law comes into full effect.

    Expect also other mobility solutions, as well as the possibility of the luxury-oriented Genesis and the performance-oriented N nameplate.
