"Towards Integrated EV Charging & Infra Landscape"  


"Whether it’s range anxiety, a lack of charging stations, maintenance or costs, consumers’ concerns are a signal of just how transformational EVs are and will be in the years to come.  Governments are adjusting to this new reality by making policy changes that benefit car buyers. Companies are making investments in charging with an eye on the future. Public and private partnerships are educating car buyers."

~ Yutaka Sanada, Regional Senior Vice President, Nissan Motor Asia Pacific


Energy efficiency is key to sustainable energy system and it extends to transportation, where electric mobility is set to disrupt the transportation industry.
Southeast Asia is making headway towards electric vehicles as for public and private transport.  Singapore is in the midst of testing electric cars and buses on its transportation network. Thailand is seeking to become an EV (electric vehicle) production hub, particularly in its newly developed special economic zone, the Eastern Economic Corridor.

The key to advancing EV industry in the region lies in the entire industry working together to progress developments in technology, regulations and infrastructure. EVs still remain relatively expensive to purchase in Southeast Asia compared to conventional vehicles, in addition to requiring charging stations to operate. The necessary infrastructure, such as full electrification and charging stations need to be in place before EVs can take off in this region.


CMT's second EV conference, e-Mobility Asia returns to Bangkok this April to access the opportunities and tasks ahead for South-East Asia’s EV markets, with focus on the charging infrastructure development.

BoI approves several EV and charging stations projects

Posted on : 01 Apr, 2019

To attract electric vehicle manufacturers into Thailand – the Thailand Board of Investment (BoI), is offering new packages and privileges. Qualified EV companies are now eligible from 5 to 8 years of exemption on corporate tax and import duties on machinery. In addition, manufacturers producing more than one key EV component may have an additional year of tax exemption per key component, capped to a maximum of 10 years.
BoI has already approved 754 investment projects during the first 6 months of 2018, including applications within the EV category which represent a value of investment greater than $600 million.
This includes Energy Mahanakhon Co’s project to build charging stations worth THB 1.09 billion,  AutoAlliance Thailand’s (JV with Mazda and Ford) hybrid EV project worth THB 11.5 billion in Rayong as well as DTS Draxlmaier Automotive System Thailand that won a high-voltage battery production project worth THB 542 million in Chon Buri to serve BMW's plug-in hybrid EVs.
In addition, Energy Mahanakhon (a subsidiary of SET-listed Energy Absolute) plans to expand charging stations under the EA Anywhere brand nationwide. 
BOI has also granted privileges to Japanese car makers - Toyota, Nissan, Honda and Mazda for hybrid EVs, while Mercedes-Benz, BMW and SAIC Motor-CP have been awarded privileges to build plug-in hybrid EVs.
At CMT’s E-Mobility Asia on 25-26 April, 2019 in Bangkok, get more details in these two sessions:
‘Development of EV & E-Mobility in Thailand’s Automotive Sectors’ - Mr. Chokedee Kaewsang, Deputy Secretary General, The Board of Investment of Thailand (BOI) and ‘Building EVs, Lithium-ion Batteries & Charging Network in Thailand’ - Mr. Thanapat Suksuthamwong, CEO, EA Anywhere.

Toyota and Panasonic Partner for Electric Vehicle Battery Production

Posted on : 18 Mar, 2019

Toyota Motor and Panasonic are joining hands for a venture to manufacture batteries for electric vehicles.
Through its partnership with Panasonic, Toyota Motor aims to reduce battery costs. While Toyota holds a 51% stake in the joint venture, Panasonic will hold the remaining stakes. The two Japanese majors plan to start producing batteries for EVs in 2020.
Toyota and Panasonic plans to launch mass production of batteries with 50 times the capacity of those used currently in hybrid vehicles. They plan to cut down production costs by increasing volumes. The JV plans to supply batteries to Mazda Motor, Toyota subsidiary - Daihatsu Motor, as well as Subaru and Honda Motor.
Panasonic will shift five automotive battery production facilities in Japan and China to the new company. However, Panasonic’s US plant (in partnership with Tesla) is not included.
Toyota aims to roughly triple annual sales of electrified vehicles to 5.5 million by 2030. Panasonic is expected to benefit on investment costs and reach a broader network of customers through its partnership with Toyota.

Find out more from Toyota about its electric vehicle and battery manufacturing at CMT’s E-Mobility Asia on 25-26 April, 2019 in Bangkok.

Singapore’s SP Group Plans 1,000 EV Chargers across the island nation by 2020

Posted on : 03 Dec, 2018

As demand for electric vehicles are expected to increase in Singapore, the country’s electricity and gas company SP Group plans a network of 1,000 electric vehicle (EV) chargers in Singapore by 2020. The EV chargers are expected to be 250 high-powered direct current (DC) with a  power ratings up to 350kW. The chargers will be able to support EV models with large battery capacity and longer driving range.
SP Group said its chargers will be located at convenient locations such as shopping centres, residential areas, business parks and industrial sites as well as coffee shops and food outlets.
With Singapore running trials for electric taxis, EV chargers are expected to be in demand in the near future. Already, Volocopter has revealed plans to test air taxis in Singapore in the second half of 2019. Its drone technology based air taxi - eVtols can carry two passengers for a distance of up to 30km and can manoeuvre high rise buildings. 
Singapore based land transport company ComfortDelGro has also run trials for two electric loniq taxis in Singapore in 2018. It used a DC fast charging station to charge the vehicles at Komoco Motors, a private local automotive company.
SP Group has further plans of extending its EV charging services to buses and other heavy-duty vehicles.
