All of us at EvNerds feel like Electric Motorcycles production and other EV sectors are about to explode in Thailand.
We had Anastasia that wrote about regulatory issues concerning of import-export and EV usability in the Thailand market, and we think that Thailand will not wait to stand behind the worlds electric vehicle production.
Small companies like ETRAN are the best example of companies taking a stand and making some serious developments in Thailands electric vehicle market. In just one and a half year they went from ETRAN KRAF model on the first picture, to the one we are about to show you now with the investment form Thailand PTT company.

The bike will cost 2280 USD
The company said that about 3,000 electric motorcycles are so far being ordered. ETRAN KRAF electric motorcycles cost will be about Bt70,000 per unit ( 2280 USD )to gain the commercial sales volume benefit.
Wittawat Svasti-Xuto, chief technology, and engineering officer said that PTT’s involvement in electric motorcycles follows the group’s support of Thai startup ETRAN, which is a designer and developer of electric motorcycles, to test the market.
