The Khaing Khaing Sangda Motorcar factory in the Thadukan industrial zone, Shwepyitha Township, Yangon Region, is producing 40 electric cars per day, said Mr. Yu Jian Chen, the managing director of the factory.
Production at the factory started this month on two new models of hybrid electric cars — KSD-V1 and KSD-V2. The cars are being jointly produced by China’s Yue Di and the Khaing Khaing Sangda Motorcar factory.
“At present, more than 100 electric cars have been manufactured. The cars will get a licence number by the end of March. The factory plans to continue producing electric vehicles,” according to officials with the factory.
“There are plans for a hire-purchase system. Electric cars are being produced at the factory under the semi-knocked down system. The cars can run long trips as they have a gasoline engine for recharging the battery when the battery pack’s charge gets low. They can help save on the high cost of gasoline and are eco-friendly,” they said.
