Jeepneys are a popular form of transportation in the Philippines. For the first time in Southeast Asia, an electric-powered version will be available in the province of Negros Occidental. Bacolod City commuters will soon be able to ride the 12-seater e-jeeps made of fiberglass. They’ll carry batteries that will be charged for 8 hours.Like the ubiquitous chrome-plated jeeps,they’ll still be brightly decorated. Hopefully the program will be successful and other cities can follow suit.
