Off-road SUV and crossover specialist BAIC, which made its public launch at last month’s Manila International Auto Show (MIAS,) is poised for rapid growth with the signing of eight major auto groups into the brand’s nationwide dealership network. These are: ANGs Automotive Group (Iloilo), Angcore Motor Group (Davao), AutoSpeedyGo Group (Marilao), Automotive Icon Inc. (Alabang), Autonomics Motor Corp (Tuguegarao), Laus Auto Group (Pampanga), Magnet Motors (Cagayan De Oro), and Oro Autoworld (Zamboanga). The dealerships are set to commence sales operations by the month of June.

BAIC Philippines’ dealer partners were recognized at a signing ceremony event held on May 22 at Cafe Aurora, in Makati City. The on-boarding of these seasoned  automotive dealership groups is a clear testament to the trust and confidence extended towards BAIC Philippines, and the brand’s official Philippine distributor, United Asia Automotive Group Inc. (UAAGI).

“We are excited to mark this new growth in UAAGI’s nationwide dealership network and we acknowledge the support of our roster of distinguished BAIC Philippines dealer partners,” says UAAGI Chairman Rommel L. Sytin.

UAAGI and its dealers are positioned to introduce the BAIC brand to the Filipino motoring public with its impressive SUV lineup and advanced technology paired with UAAGI’s brand of specialized customer service,” said UAAGI Chairman Rommel Sytin.

Alongside Chairman Sytin present at the event were Group Managing Director Froilan Dytianquin, Lyn Manalansang Buena, Chief Marketing Executive, and Christopher David Yu, BAIC Brand Head and General Manager. 

“Having eight major dealer groups commit to our new brand is certainly an auspicious start for BAIC and UAAGI. We can’t wait for Filipinos to experience firsthand the characteristics and capabilities of our world-class SUV models,” remarked Froilan Dytianquin, BAIC Philippines Managing Director.     

BAIC stands as a formidable player in the global market, boasting a diverse portfolio of products. Its esteemed status as a Fortune Global 500 company, ranking 193rd in 2023, is underscored by its performance as the 3rd largest player in the Chinese automotive industry. With a vast network comprising over 360 sales and service outlets, BAIC has cemented its global footprint across 30 countries spanning Asia, America, and Europe.

Setting BAIC apart from the burgeoning number of new automotive brands in the Philippines is its true 4×4 SUV models with genuine off-road capabilities and strong yet fuel-efficient diesel engines. These attributes will surely appeal to executives and entrepreneurs who live active lifestyles and who want and need large, spacious, high-riding diesel-powered SUVs for out of town trips. Millennials and Gen Zs will gravitate towards BAIC’s lineup of stylish and equally capable crossovers.  

The initial lineup of BAIC models introduced in the Philippine market will be composed of an all-SUV-and-crossover range. These are the B40 Ragnar, B60 Beaumont, B80 Wagon, which are all body-on-frame true SUVs, and the X55 Verve and X7 Grandeza monocoque crossovers. 

All BAIC vehicles are made in the company’s world-class state-of-the-art fully automated plants in Shunyi, Beijing. These vehicles have contemporary styling and modern comfort, convenience and safety features, while the higher end models boast upscale features like huge touchscreen displays, automatic power tailgates, automatic LED headlamps, cruise control, Smart Key Entry System, power-adjustable seats, LCD instrument panel, panoramic sunroof, leather seats, 20″ alloy wheels, among many others. For safety and performance, higher BAIC models are complemented with multiple airbags as well as a full suite of advanced electronic driver-assist systems and sophisticated four-wheel drive systems. As a testament to BAIC’s quality, all BAIC automobiles come with a 5 year warranty.
