The in-mall charging stations are located in SM AURA B1 Parking, SM Mall of Asia 3rd Level North Parking Building, and SM North EDSA 3rd Level North Parking Tower. There are two Wallbox Pulsar Plus 7.4KW AC chargers per mall. These chargers support e-Vehicle brands such as Audi, BMW, Fiat, Ford, GMC, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen, and Hyundai, among others. 

The launch of the EV charging stations in premier SM malls is a product of the mall chain's continuous partnership with the Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Department of Science and Technology, and Department of Trade and Industry in assisting the government in accelerating its renewable energy and sustainability initiatives.

E-vehicles are true zero-emission vehicles that have electric motors instead of internal combustion engines. As of 2020, there are 12,965 registered EVs in the Philippines. 

SM Supermalls is one of the first mall chains to establish in-mall e-Vehicle charging sites in the country. In 2018, SM North EDSA inaugurated its first EV charging station to service electric public transport routes, and most recently these EV chargers have been updated.

In the coming months, expect that fast chargers will be installed in more SM Malls.
