The 43rd Bangkok International Motor Show is ready to welcome visitors to its venue, IMPACT Exhibition Complex in Muang Thong Thani area, from March 23 to April 3 under the theme “Let’s Keep Moving Forward Together”. .
Prachin Eamlumnow, managing director of Grand Prix International PCL and chief organizer of the Bangkok International Motor Show, said Thailand’s auto industry has started to recover this year after being affected by COVID-19 for more than two years. Importantly, industry was shifting from internal combustion engines to electric power and manufacturers were enjoying government support for their production of electric vehicles for domestic use and export, he said. .
The Bangkok International Motor Show has played an important role in the transition by showcasing more than 20 series of electric vehicles as well as many series of electric motorcycles. Prices for electric vehicles started at over 300,000 baht and the highest price was around 6 million baht, Prachin said.
Government support through excise tax and reduced import duties would make electric vehicles more attractive as their prices were lower, he said. (TNA)
