Mitsubishi Motors Thailand partners with KLeasing in offering exclusive offers for members of the Government Pension Fund when buying a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
Bangkok – July 14, 2022: Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co., Ltd. in collaboration with KASIKORN LEASING Co., Ltd. (KLeasing) has unveiled a green campaign for members of the Government Pension Fund (GPF) and their family members. When buying a new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, they will enjoy gifts and other exclusive offers. Presently, there are more than 1.17 million GPF members nationwide.
Mr. Eiichi Koito, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co., Ltd. said “Mitsubishi Motors is a pioneer of EV in the world and have been trying to develop the market in many regions. As Thai government has outlined a direction to go for electrification and has been encouraging to expand the EV market through many schemes and incentives, Mitsubishi Motors Thailand, as part of Thai society, has been continuing our contribution to support the government’s EV direction by starting with the local production of the Outlander PHEV. The car can be used as an EV in the city and can go long distance trip on two energies, either electricity or gasoline. We believe this technology is the most practical EV in the current market condition. With the collaboration campaign with Kasikorn Leasing for Government Pension Fund Member this time, more than 1.17 million GPF members countrywide will have the opportunity to access the EV, accelerating the country's electrification.”
Mr. Tirachart Chiracharasporn, KLeasing Managing Director, said “the battery electric vehicle (BEV) market in Thailand is thriving, thanks to the government’s measure of promoting BEVs and overwhelming response from buyers amid skyrocketing oil prices. In 2021, there were 1,954 new BEVs registered, and the figure reached approximately 1,645 units during the first four months of 2022, excluding those that may have been purchased during the recent Bangkok International Motor Show 2022. KASIKORN RESEARCH CENTER (KResearch) projects that sales of EVs will reach roughly 10,000 units in 2022, an increase of more than 412 percent YoY to at least 10 billion baht. However, due to the limited number of charging stations in Thailand, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) have emerged as a more viable option as they can be powered by electricity and gasoline or diesel fuel.”
Meanwhile, KBank has unveiled the GO GREEN Together Project, notable as the first bank to help connect and promote a comprehensive Green Ecosystem and Green Lifestyle in Thailand. In response to this project, KLeasing has collaborated with Mitsubishi Motors Thailand in offering exclusive offers to GPF members and their family members nationwide.
