Poised to further develop the city.

Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), the official distributor of Hyundai trucks and buses in the Philippines, successfully turned over 15 units of HD50S Modern PUV Class 3 to Magnificat Transport Cooperative in Bacoor, Cavite. The transport group aims to provide the commuting public with a safe and environmentally-friendly transport system.

This is not, however, the first time HARI made efforts for transport modernization in Cavite. The Korean carmaker also delivered the first batch of 120 units of HD50 Class 2 Modern Jeepney to Gardenia Kapit-Bisig in Bacoor, Cavite.

A total of 22 passengers can fit in the HD50S Modern PUV Class 3 thanks to its wheelbase that spans 3,415 mm in length. Powering the Modern jeepney is a 2.9-liter Euro-4 compliant CRDi engine that provides transport groups better fuel efficiency and cleaner emissions.

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) granted the HD50S Modern PUV Class 3 a Certificate of Compliance (COC) last year following the COC received for the H-100 Modern PUV Class and HD50S Modern PUV Class 2 in 2019. The HD50S Modern PUV Class 3 is set to help the government and the nation for a greener and more sustainable future.
