A city electric car


Information from the dynamic Automotive Focus Group is that Vera Automotive, founded on Oct 7, 2015 by five Thai engineers from King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL) is a new “Thai” Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV).

Details including the maximum speed of the Vera V1 is up to 105 kilometers an hour. It can run up to 180 km per charge, which takes six hours to complete.

Co-founder Wanchai Meesiri said all Vera cars are designed by Thai engineers under the Thai brand, but the company has hired the Chinese carmaker Geely Automotive to produce the BEVs. The company imports the cars as completely built-up (CBU) vehicles to Thailand.
