US-based electric vehicle (EV) firm Evlomo is planning to set up a charging network across Thailand through its Thai affiliate Evlomo Technologies.

As part of this initiative, the company will invest $50m for installing more than 1,000 new fast chargers over the next five years.

Evlomo CEO Nicole Wu said: “Evlomo will raise the bar when it comes to the high-speed charging experience needed to speed up the EV revolution in Thailand.

“We are confident that increased charger availability and shorter charging times will help Evlomo, and the industry as a whole, deliver the future-proof charging experience that customers need.”

Evlomo said that it will be installing its fast-charging stations in cities and suburbs across Thailand to provide increased charging access to EV users.

The company is collaborating with PTT Oil and Retail PCL (PTTOR), a retail unit of Thailand’s biggest energy company PTT PCL, to install its EV chargers at PTTOR’s locations across the Eastern Economic Corridor.

PTTOR currently operates more than 2,290 petrol stations and 3,440 coffee shops under its Café Amazon brand, as well as 2,040 convenience stores across the country.

Evlomo has also partnered with Tritium and EAST Group for the charging infrastructure.

With capacities ranging up to 350kW, the company said that its charging stations will be compatible with all major EV models currently on the market.

Evlomo will launch its first charging site this month and plans a mass rollout from May.

Through an integrated platform solution on mobiles, Evlomo aims to make its charging station network easily accessible to EV users.

The firm also plans to offer AC wall box chargers for home installation and work with logistics companies to establish EV charging stations at depots and hubs.
