Golf Cars Finding Success In Thailand

Local media reports that Global Electric Motorcars Asia and others are finding success in Thailand selling electric golf cars (not to be confused with Polaris’ GEM brand). Key market segments are resorts and hotels in the South and universities in the Northeast. The company has three showroom locations with service centers in the country, one in Bangkok and two more in the South with plans to open a third. Used primarily for people transport and golf, the majority of the vehicles in the market are imported. Cost-conscious shoppers tend towards Chinese imports that are exempt from the stiff 40-50% import tax other manufacturers pay. The company is also trying to get NEVs licensed for use on public roads to expand the market. Learn more: ¬†Phuketgazette.net
