The event offers a space for car companies to show off their latest electric vehicles (EVs), pointing out the growing popularity of Chinese EV brands in Thailand, where they made up over 80 percent of new battery electric vehicle registrations last year.



Organizers said the increasing presence of Chinese EV makers in Thailand is also seen as a major step towards boosting the local job market, enhancing the supply chain, and reinforcing Thailand’s position as a key player in the ASEAN EV sector. (NNT)
