Nissan Motor Thailand recently shared its plan to move Thailand towards a more electric, more connected and more autonomous future of mobility at the recent “EV Tech Forum 2018” organised by the Electric Vehicle Association of Thailand (EVAT).
In a press release issued on Friday, Peter Galli, Nissan’s vice president for communications in Thailand, said that Nissan’s goal is to help move people to a better world through more electrification, more connectivity and more autonomy through the Nissan Intelligent Mobility concept.
“The new Nissan Leaf EV, which was unveiled in Thailand at the Motor Expo late last month, won’t just transform the way people drive. It will also transform the way they live,” he said.
According to Galli, Nissan Intelligent Mobility is Nissan’s roadmap for the technology and business evolution of the automotive industry, which is making customer lives better by redefining how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.
Dr. Yossapong Laoonual, president of EVAT, added that the Thai government aims to increase the usage of electric vehicles up to 1.2 million units by the year 2036.
“Relevant agencies including the BOI and government agencies have created a number of incentives to stimulate the growth of electric vehicles as well as recruiting various investors and manufacturers to collaborate on EV projects,” he said.
