Updated Jun 26, 2020 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates
Some good news in the local market amid the pandemic.

With the continuous negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, five Honda and one Isuzu dealerships have closed after a careful and thorough assessment. This is indeed a tough time for everyone including the local automotive industry.  

However, it seems like things are different from Kia Philippines as it manages to open four new dealerships amid the global health crisis. This move is motivated by Kia’s ambition to increase its reach and make its cars even more accessible to more Filipinos.

“We, together with our business partners, are confident that this move will help strengthen the brand’s presence and show the Filipino people that we are here for them, despite the challenges we are facing today,” he added.
