Thailand is Asia's fourth-largest auto assembly and export hub for companies like Toyota Motor Corp and Honda Motor Co Ltd. The country sees production of about 1.5 million to 2 million vehicles annually, of which about half of which are exported.

The Thailand government is now targeting production of 725,000 EVs a year, or 30% of total vehicle output, by 2030. The country also offers many EVs made by Chinese automakers at affordable prices. Great Wall Motors launched its ORA Good Cat model at the annual motor show for 828,500 baht ($22,600). The Chinese manufacturer also plans to produce that model in Thailand in 2024.

Another Chinese automaker Hozon Auto last month unveiled the NETA V for 549,000 baht ($15,000), matching starting prices for traditional vehicles in Thailand. Meanwhile, Indonesian President Joko Widodo in August urged Tesla to manufacture its cars and batteries, in his country.
