Anticipated reveal coincided with STAR Corp.’s 4th anniversary
Solar Transport and Automotive Resources Corp. (STAR Corp.), the authorized distributor of BYD vehicles in the Philippines, celebrated its fourth year anniversary with the launch of the new S1 and Lithium-Ion Phosphate Forklift last Sept. 28 at BYD Showroom in Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong City. “We are grateful to all of you most especially to our clients, bank partners and media friends for your unceasing support. BYD Philippines has been in the country for four years now and we are proud to say that our customers are very happy and satisfied,” said STAR Corp. Managing Director Mark Andrew Tieng.
Inspired by the event’s theme “Driving to the Future,” BYD then presented the all-new S1 and the all-new Lithium-Ion Phosphate Forklift. The S1 is a sub-compact SUV that offers reliable performance, a petrol-powered vehicle that you can rely on not just for your city driving but also for your out of town trips. The five-seater S1 combines comfort, style and agility in a crossover platform.
It offers advanced technologies such as an Android Multimedia system equipped with Bluetooth, USB ports and an eight-inch touch-screen. It has a striking “rebellious” look, which will satisfy your needs and expectations in a versatile compact vehicle. Meanwhile, the BYD Lithium-Ion Phosphate Counter-Balanced Forklift is powered by the company’s Lithium-Ion Phosphate battery, made from non-toxic materials. It is lead-free and does not have any lead acid emissions, making it safe for the users and for the environment.
The BYD forklift is also equipped with automatic speed reduction when cornering, forward tilting and overload protection, braking assist, a battery management system and a multi-function TFT Screen to help the operator monitor its performance. Apart from the launch, BYD also introduced its free 5-year PMS Oil Change Program, which will be given to customers who will avail the S1 and S7 units. The free PMS program will include oil filter, drain plug washer, gasket, as well as four liters of regular engine oil.
