Ministry pushes for use of EVs in industrial sector to boost investment


In a bid to encourage investment in electric vehicles (EV), the Industry Ministry is joining hands with Siam Cement Group (SCG) to boost the use of EVs in the industrial sector.

The ministry is also in the process of inviting other large companies like PTT and Thai Beverage to promote the use of EVs to create domestic demand and attract more investment.

SCG will gradually start replacing its fleet of trucks and buses with electric vehicles as part of its aim to become 100 per cent electrified by 2035.
