Globe debuts zero-emission BYD EV and Gogoro Smartscooters as top prizes in the 2023 G Chance the Raffle

Globe gave its customers a chance to make their dream drives come true while making a difference for the environment through its G Chance the Raffle – offering the soon-to-be-launched BYD Dolphin Pure EV and the Gogoro Smartscooters as its top raffle prizes.

BYD Dolphin Pure EV is a 5-seater electric vehicle that runs on a 70-kW (95 horsepower) electric motor with 180 Nm torque, powered by a 44.9-kWh lithium-ion iron phosphate battery. The car’s compact hatchback form can comfortably handle out-of-town trips with no noise or vibrations, high levels of safety, and zero emissions – allowing Mother Earth to breathe better.

It is distributed by AC Motors under Globe principal Ayala Corporation with its key dealer networks.

Gogoro Smartscooters, on the other hand, are two-wheeled rides supported by convenient and cost-efficient battery-swapping technology – powered through “GoStations,” where users can conveniently swap depleted batteries for fully charged ones in as quick as just six seconds.

Officially launching in the fourth quarter of this year, these scooters are being brought to the country through the official teaming up of Globe’s 917Ventures, the Ayala Corporation, and Gogoro Taiwan in a concerted effort to bring cleaner transportation options.

One BYD Dolphin Pure EV and three Gogoro Smartscooters were up for grabs in this year’s G Chance the Raffle, won by lucky subscribers Ysabel Ubana, Mario Acab, Jr., Eiryll Nynnya Ang, and Michale John Ilagan.

With this initiative, the first time that Globe is including e-vehicles among its G Chance the Raffle prizes, Globe emphasizes that they do not only want to make their customers’ dream drives come true but also for them to enter the new era of mobility with a strong push and advocacy for climate tech, clean energy, and sustainability.

Ysabel Ubana, the winner of the BYD Dolphin Pure EV, does not only benefit from the car’s cost-efficiency. She also appreciates how it contributes to a greener future for the world. “Owning an electric vehicle has made me dream of a greener tomorrow because I feel more environmentally conscious and it helps me lessen my carbon footprint for the benefit of the future generation. I would like to thank Globe for holding this annual raffle and giving us Globe subscribers the opportunity of winning prizes that you could only dream of.”

“We want to make our customers’ dream drives come true while pushing for sustainability with these EVs. Globe has been putting into practice our advocacy for cleaner energy resources, and we are excited for our customers to experience clean transport and allow them to make more sustainable choices in their lifestyles,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe’s Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer.

Head of Globe Rewards Jerome Patalud said, “This year’s G Chance the Raffle aims to bring together excitement for our customers, as well as our advocacy, and having EVs as part of our major prizes is a life-changing opportunity to have a more sustainable lifestyle.”
