The 2nd Philippine Auto & Parts Expo (PhilAPEX) is open until today, August 10, at 5 PM at the SMX Convention Center in the SM Mall of Asia complex in Pasay City, and like last year, locally-developed public utility vehicles are the centerpieces for the two-day event.

Last year’s participants that are once again exhibiting their entries to the government’s Public Utility Vehicle Modernization Program (PUVMP) are vehicle manufacturers Foton, Hino, Isuzu, and Tata, as well as local truck body makers Almazora, Centro, and Santarosa.

New participants and exhibitors at this year’s show are JMC, Suzuki–with a prototype based on its Super Carry’s Utility Van platform–and SBX, an electric microbus that’s manufactured in Japan and is being promoted by SoftBank.

Check out these latest modernized jeepneys in the gallery below.
