WHA Group, a Thai industrial estate developer, has indicated that the company and BYD, a Chinese electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, will soon announce plans for an EV manufacturing facility in Thailand.
WHA representatives said the two companies will hold a joint news conference on Thursday (8 Sep) to discuss plans for the EV plant at an industrial estate in Rayong province.
“The WHA group has sealed a deal to sell a big plot of land in our industrial estate in Rayong province,” Jareeporn Jarukornsakul, WHA’s co-founder and chairman, told Nikkei Asia, declining to give further details
According to Chinese news outlet Jiemian, BYD plans to begin selling EVs in Thailand later this year, providing local consumers with a greater selection of vehicles to choose from.
