Thailand: PTT opens EV-charging station, plans 5 more

Chevrolet’s Volt electric vehicle (EV) made a historic recharging stop after taking part in the opening ceremony of Thailand’s first PTT Pilot Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station at the PTT Research and Technology Institute in Ayutthaya’s Wang Noi recently.

PTT plans to open five more Pilot EV charging stations by 2013: two EV charging stations in Bangkok at the PTT Head Office service station and PTT service station near the First Infantry Regiment off Vibhavadi Rangsit Road, one in Nonthaburi and two more at service stations located on the Bangkok-Rayong route.

The top management of Chevrolet Sales (Thailand) and PTT were represented by Khanchit Chaisupho, director, Public Policy GM Thailand/SEA and Chevrolet Sales (Thailand), and Ratanavalee Inochanon, executive vice president, PTT Research and Technology Institute. Ratanavalee presided as chairperson of the opening ceremony.

The concept of an electrification strategy is gaining momentum in the public eye and government sector. Chevrolet said electric energy is one of the many solutions that have a potential to provide answers to mobility in the context of global warming concerns.

“Chevrolet is appreciative of the efforts demonstrated by the Thai government, through the PTT state enterprise, in its genuine concern to develop EV infrastructure, which will help reduce emissions and preserve the environment.” said Martin Apfel, president of GM Southeast Asia/GM Thailand and Chevrolet Sales (Thailand).
