Interest surges in Yangon for electric tricycle sales plan

The plan to sell electric three-wheelers in Yangon Region has attracted the interest of many people, according to EV tricycle dealers.
If these electric three-wheelers are allowed to operate in more townships in Yangon, their market can expand further, they commented.
“Public interest in EV tricycles is growing. Some are making enquiries. Some are ordering. Customers use the electric three-wheelers as school ferries and rice bag carriers. Some are eager to use them, but the licence is not granted in Yangon City except for Thanlyin and Insein. If EV tricycles are allowed in some Yangon townships, our business would be swarming with buyers. There are many buyers from two permitted townships,” said an official from Jinpeng Three Wheelers Trading Company in Dagon Myothit (Seikkan) Township.
The Jinpeng EV tricycle currently on sale is a Chinese-made vehicle that is rechargeable with both home and power meters and can run all day if charged for eight hours, according to the company.
“It’s sourced from China, often with unique specifications. Prices fluctuate based on brand, reaching up to K12.9 million. Charging options include standard or power meters, requiring a 60-amp plug. An overnight charge of eight hours enables morning usage with varying mileage capacities. The range spans 68 miles or an entire day,” he explained. — Thit Taw/ZN
