A NEW partnership between the Thailand operations of Nissan Motor and Delta Electronics is expected to allow users of the full-electric Nissan Leaf to charge their vehicles in more locations, including their homes.

This was bared in an announcement made by Nissan in Thailand. It said its agreement with Delta, which the carmaker described as a “global power supply provider,” supports Thailand’s electrification roadmap.

Thailand aims to have 1.2 million electrified vehicles on its roads by 2036.

The agreement appoints Delta as Nissan’s “primary provider of electric vehicle charging systems” in the country. The carmaker said Delta will provide local Leaf owners with international-standard charging facilities.

“Nissan Motor Thailand is committed to helping drive an electric vehicle ecosystem in Thailand for the benefit of our customers, and Thai people, by supporting a greener future through electric mobility,” said Ramesh Narasimhan, president of Nissan Motor Thailand.

“To ensure this, we are honored to welcome Delta, one of the world’s leading power supply producers and thermal management solutions providers, on board to join us and drive Thailand toward an all-electric vehicle future,” said the executive, who also headed Nissan’s operations in the Philippines.

Nissan said the partnership is supported by a Frost & Sullivan report which found that, for Thai consumers, having convenient and flexible charging options was one of the top three motivating factors in deciding to purchase an electric car.

The deal gives them access to Delta’s “comprehensive EV charging and site management solutions already available to EV drivers in the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia,” Nissan said.

“We believe an even more exciting future lies ahead through the goal of electrifying Thailand. That has already started through deals like the one with Delta and our recent ground-breaking collaboration with Thailand’s Metropolitan Electricity Authority that brings home charging options to ensure the proper infrastructure is in place for Nissan Leaf customers,” Narasimhan said.
