The AC wall box EV chargers will be fitted on all new single detached housing projects under the company’s Burasiri and Setthasiri brands, which are priced between 8 – 20 million Baht (about RM 995k to RM 2.5 million).
Sansiri also said that the feature will soon be expanded to include houses at the lower 2 – 3 million Baht (about RM 250k to RM 373k) range.
This follows after an earlier announcement last year that the company will install 81 EV chargers in 25 of the company’s condominium projects.
Typical of high rise buildings, it is not possible to build EV chargers for every parking bay but Sansiri side-stepped this issue by developing a booking and payment app that allows residents to pre-book and pay for use of the shared EV charging facility.
Sansiri also has a partnership with Audi where an Audi e-tron 55 Quattro is available for sharing by residents of Sansiri’s high-end projects.
The Bangkok Post reports that in the past 10 years, Sansiri has installed a total of 95 EV chargers in common areas at 28 residential projects in Greater Bangkok, housing around 20,000 families.
