PHUKET CITY: Governor Wichai Phraisa-ngop took possession of a new hybrid car this morning, courtesy of the Interior Ministry.
The handover ceremony took place at the Governor’s mansion on Narison Rd, where Chaipat Na Ranong, assistant managing director of the Toyota Pearl dealership in Koh Kaew, handed over the keys to Gov Wichai.
The hybrid is a black Toyota Camry Hybrid 2.4-liter sedan equipped a DVD player, GPS car navigator and rear view camera.
Now the governor’s official car, the Camry is one of 76 hybrid vehicles being distributed to governors in every province as part of an environmental awareness campaign.
The Camry was chosen not only because it is environmentally friendly, but also because it will be easy to service and maintain as there are Toyota dealerships throughout the kingdom.
The vehicles have been acquired under a three-year purchase plan with monthly installments of 39,200 baht each.
