Thailand Post to use electric motorbikes for delivery in bid to cut pollution

Recommended Posts

Thailand could become an important manufacturer of electric vehicles .

Without any doubt electric vehicles will become the mainstream for future mobility .

 

It could bring in a lot of money for Thailand ... ( that is what they think counts the most , isn't it ? )

Anyone know which company is supplying the electric scooters?  I have a Toyotron now (Bangkok based) but am looking for a much better model next year.  Strom seems OK but they don't have a style I like.  I may go with an imported Niu, it's fantastic.

A couple of questions 

With reverting to electric car, bikes, ferries, where and how is all this new demand for power going to come from. In the end are we not just going to burn fossil fuels at the other end???

The batteries required to be produced creat another issue on the enviroement out weighing the burning of fossil fuels

Also in California as an example the Power commission has pointed out that the whole electrial system is not suited to supplying the amount of power needed and will need a massive upgrade

 

So is it the way to go now ?

Solar panels on EVERY roof ...

Not sure you can get in Thailand or can import this from Taiwan but these are everywhere there, GOGORO.  My friend has one and although a bit pricey at first, you get a subsidy at year end for something like 60% of the purchase price.  They have stations all around Taipei and one next to me beside Carrefour (BIG C) where they pull up, take the batteries out and just pull 2 new ones out / place in and gone!  And so quiet!  (you would have to find out if they are chargeable at home though of course)

It does not make sense; I can imagine electric motorcycles passing by the roads under a toxic cloud, where the neighbors burn their garbage, plastics, rubber and waste.

laudable idea, but a drop in the ocean when they start burning the sugar cane fields.  That can be sorted at little cost if the government makes a decision
