"The ministry is working on a new programme called Eco EV, which is aimed at offering incentives for eco-car makers," said Nattapol Rangsitpol, director-general of the Office of Industrial Economics (OIE). The Industry Ministry feels that its Plan B incentives will attract the top eco-car makers to manufacture in Thailand.

But this tax privilege is solely intended to promote local EV production and will expire in late 2025. The government's eco-car scheme was issued in two phases, in 2007 and in 2013.
