Energy Minister, Sontirat Sontijirawong, has announced a package to allow for the production of electric vehicles in Thailand. The package includes incentives on investment, as well as on the production of components and batteries.

It’s understood that the package also has measures to promote the wider use of electric vehicles among the public, following environmental and emissions concerns associated with more traditional vehicles.

In order to draw up a comprehensive policy on the proposals, the Energy Ministry is teaming up with both the Finance and Industry ministries, along with the Board of Investment.

The Energy Minstry also plans to consult leading experts on how to create more demand for electric vehicles and ways to draw worldwide suppliers to Thailand.
