On March 13, Neta Auto's (Chinese: 哪吒汽车) Thailand Ecological Smart Factory has recently laid the foundation stone. In the future, it will become the main manufacturing base for Neta Auto to build right-hand drive electric vehicles and export them to ASEAN.
At the same time, Neta Auto also signed a cooperation agreement with Thailand's BGAC company. According to the strategic cooperation agreement, Neta Auto's Thailand factory will cooperate with BGAC to improve the production process with automation and world-class technology, so that the design and manufacture of automobiles can meet international standards. In addition, the two parties will jointly invest in the construction of a modern electric vehicle assembly base, strengthen the sustainable development of personnel skills, and help create an electric vehicle ecosystem in Thailand.
Situated in Khan Na Yao, Bangkok, the Plant is Neta Auto's first overseas factory, and also the first plant of China EV startups in Thailand. Consisting of three workshops for welding, painting and assembly, the facility will feature optimized plant design and innovative process technologies based on the concept of lean and intelligent manufacture, saving resources and increasing quality and efficiency. The plant may be put into production by late January 2024 as a model international factory intelligently making new-energy vehicles.
Zhang Yong, Co-founder and CEO of Neta Auto, said: "Significantly, the Thailand plant will be a major base for us to produce and export RHD EVs to ASEAN. Since we will begin construction of several world-class intelligent EV manufacturing bases simultaneously, our capacity will be expanded, supporting our globalization development. We also plan to enter more countries in the Middle East, the European Union and other regions, making Neta Auto a brand recognized and trusted by global consumers."
