At the Newest Multi-Brand Car Dealership, It's Like an Auto Show Open Daily
Ayala Group’s AC Motors, one of the country’s largest multi-brand automotive and motorcycle networks, now has a one-stop shop for all of its brands. Located in Bonifacio Global City, AC Motors Centrale is a 3,000 square meter facility housing Honda, Isuzu, Volkswagen, and Kia and as well as the two motorcycle brands KTM and Husqvarna.
The automotive dealership arm of Ayala, AC Motors operates the largest Honda and Isuzu dealership networks with locations throughout the country. AC Industrials on the other hand, has nurtured strong partnerships with Honda Motor Company and Isuzu Motors of Japan over the last three decades through joint ventures for their Philippine distribution operations.
While there are other multi-brand showrooms in the market, AC Motors Centrale caters only to brands owned by the Ayala Group. This means that the brands it carries are either from manufacturers that are company-owned, or AC Motors is the exclusive distributor of that brand.
“Think of it as having a mini car show every day,” said AC Motors Automobile Group President Antonio “Toti” Zara III. “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.”
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 can also 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 such a used car program, which is powered by an online automotive portal with one of the country’s largest digital audiences.
“AC Industrials’ automobile and motorcycle distribution and retail businesses have been an integral part of the Ayala group for the last 30 years, enabling AC Motors to provide mobility solutions for the Filipino people,” said ACI President and CEO Arthur “Art” Tan, who was also present at the launch. “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.”
AC Motors Centrale is located along the corner of 28th street and 9th Avenue and is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Customers can either just simply walk in or book their appointments with any of the brands through (02) 8558-5888, or by logging on to acmotors.com.ph. They can also follow the AC Motors Facebook page to get updated with the latest news and promos.
