Loxley and Government Savings Bank have joined hands to offer loans for tuk-tuk drivers to purchase new electric three-wheelers to create a new career opportunity.
Loxley’s Energy Strategic Business Group is an authorised dealer of the electric three-wheelers brand, TukTuk Factory (TTF), which distributes in Thailand and across Indochina.
Loxley’s tuk-tuk offers a high-performance engine and a car charger designed for use with a general household outlet (220 watts).
With machine parts are made in Thailand, the firm can provide maintenance service within 24 hours. This electric model meets regulatory, technical and safety requirements, and can obtain approval from the European Union.
“Our Tuk Tuk will help create good image for the country,” said Loxley’s Nimit Prasertsuk, executive vice president, energy strategic business group.
“At this stage, we have invited tuk-tuk drivers in Chiang Mai to apply for the loans. Later we will also focus on other business groups such as hotels, hospitals, serviced apartments, schools, and food trucks which need electric tuk-tuks for their business.”
A memorandum of understanding on the matter was recently signed between Loxley’s Nimit and Jiraporn Nugitrangson, GSB’s senior executive vice president, grassroots and public sector customers group.
