Nissan in Thailand has announced the official appointment of Delta Electronics (Thailand) PCL as the primary provider of electric vehicle charging systems.
The deal supports Thailand’s electrification goal of 1.2 million units on the road by 2036 and will provide Nissan LEAF owners in Thailand international-standard charging facilities with Delta’s quality standard of service, certified by Nissan.
“Nissan Motor Thailand is committed to helping drive an electric vehicle ecosystem in Thailand for the benefit of our customers, and Thai people, by supporting a greener future through electric mobility,” said Ramesh Narasimhan, president of Nissan Motor Thailand. “To ensure this, we are honored to welcome Delta, one of the world’s leading power supply producers and thermal management solutions providers, on board to join us and drive Thailand toward an all-electric vehicle future.”
The partnership is supported by a Frost & Sullivan report, which found that, for Thai consumers, having convenient and flexible charging options was one of the top three motivating factors to purchase an EV in Thailand. As such, this deal gives access to Delta’s comprehensive EV charging and site management solutions already available to EV drivers in the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia.
“We believe an even more exciting future lies ahead through the goal of electrifying Thailand,” said Narasimhan. “That has already started through deals like the one with Delta and our recent ground-breaking collaboration with Thailand’s Metropolitan Electricity Authority that brings home charging options to ensure the proper infrastructure is in place for Nissan LEAF customers.”
