We are To-Jo Motors Corp.
We are a small company with big dreams: to make more electric vehicles as a solution to mitigating climate change.
It all started with Ralph Legaspi picking interest on the simple mechanism and functionality of an e-trike he rode in a tourist area. Being a tinkerer and car lover, he took on the challenge to design and create his own and offer to people. Thus, To-Jo Motors was born. One prototype led to another, and from building small e-trikes, now the company creates six-meter long mini-buses (modern e-jeepneys) and looks to develop electric cars soon.
The company is composed of people with diverse background that collectively has one common goal: a better and cleaner country to live in, stemming from modern and practical solutions. Along the years, we have made e-trikes and 4-wheel electric vehicles in different sizes and shapes. Moving forward, we are now transitioning to a more refined production system that will allow us to produce efficiently and to deliver to local and foreign markets.
The passion of Ralph Legaspi, now the Chairman of the group, is still being passed on to all the members of the To-Jo Motors family, fueling the desire to design, develop, and manufacture more environment-friendly electric vehicles.
To-Jo Motors is involved in developing modern technologies, operating after-sales facilities and service centers, and sales of key components for our own electric vehicles. We specialize in production of EV’s for three and four-wheel types, including accessories and related parts. The company offers quality products, designed for high performance and value for money.
