Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) has strengthened its longtime partnership with Victory Liner, Inc. (VLI) with the delivery of 50 brand-new luxury Hyundai Universe buses. This is part of the bus company’s upgrading program.

It has been our great pleasure and privilege to be Victory Liner’s key transportation partner. We are grateful for their continued trust and support in Hyundai since we first forged our partnership. Our tried-and-tested buses such as the Hyundai Universe provide a safer, faster, and more comfortable mode of mass transport for Filipinos,” said HARI President & CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo.

Victory Liner’s mission is to move people better, safer by providing timely, cost-efficient, and quality transport services. Working closely with Filipino-owned companies such as HARI brings us one step closer to our goal,” Victory Liner, Inc. President Johnny T. Hernandez added.

Both HARI and VLI firmly support the government’s thrust to modernize the country’s public transport system.

The Hyundai Universe is a heavy-duty bus that combines dynamic performance and luxurious style. Manufactured in one of the biggest plants for commercial vehicles in the world, it is durable and of high-quality thanks to Hyundai’s cutting-edge technology using automatic welding utilizing robots and a cathodic electrodeposition system. The Hyundai Universe Bus is powered by a 12.3-liter Euro 4-compliant electronic diesel engine with 375 HP max power for better fuel efficiency resulting in maximized business profits and cleaner emissions. The ride on a Hyundai Universe is comfortable with its 49 +1 seating capacity and secure, thanks to its highly rigid monocoque body.

The Hyundai Universe Bus belongs to HARI’s Commercial Vehicle line-up that provides various mobility solutions for people and goods to spur economic activity. The Commercial Vehicle segment continues to drive HARI's business growth and is expected to improve further with the introduction and deployment of Hyundai Modern Jeepneys

Hyundai buses make-up almost a third of Victory Liner’s 1,100 bus fleet that moves thousands of Filipinos daily, underscoring reliability and ease of ownership, including maintenance and after-sales. Hyundai commercial vehicles are supported by a 3-Year, 200,000-kilometer Mileage Warranty (whichever comes first). Additionally, Hyundai supports its business partners with programs such as the Call for Service Inspection (CSI) that bring in highly-trained technicians to repair Hyundai Trucks & Buses fleet right at the customer’s doorstep.

Through our continuous commitment to serve the Filipino riding public and also transportation businesses such as Victory Liner, we are poised to contribute not only to the economy but also to nation-building. Hyundai is revved up to move people, industries, and the entire nation forward,” Ms. Agudo added.
