Four companies in the Commercial Japan Partnership Technologies Corporation (CJPT), Isuzu Motors Limited, Toyota Motor Corporation, Suzuki Motor Corporation, and Daihatsu Motor Co., Ltd., along with Hino Motors, Ltd., are to hold a test drive event with the cooperation of Toyota Motor Thailand Co., Ltd, and introduce commercial vehicles for various purposes for government officials, media, fleet companies, and partner corporations.
CJPT was established in April 2021 to accelerate the implementation and popularization of CASE technologies toward solving transportation challenges and achieving a Carbon-Neutral society. Following the collaboration with Charoen Pokphand Group (CP) announced in December last year, CJPT aims to expand partnerships in Asia, including in the area of energy supply (energy solutions), mobility solutions such as vehicle provision and logistics management, and data solutions, by integrating the strengths of each company.
In the journey towards carbon neutrality, the powertrain of the vehicle that customers seek may vary depending on the energy situation and customer usage in each country or region, with various options such as Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Battery Electric Vehicles, and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles. Therefore, it is important to provide the optimal mobility solution according to the regional environment and customer needs. CJPT positions this test drive event as part of expanding activities with more partners and will further accelerate CJPT’s efforts to realize carbon neutrality in Thailand.
CJPT President Hiroki Nakajima said, “With appreciation to the society, we would like to contribute to improving the quality of life of people in Asia with various low-fuel consumption and high-efficiency vehicles, including small (Kei) ICE vans, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Battery Electric Vehicles, and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles. We would like to hear the sincere opinions of the stakeholders through experiencing each product, and consider the appropriate way to climb the mountain of tackling carbon neutrality together.”
Starting from Thailand, CJPT will continue to work to quickly deploy decarbonization technologies to the Asian market by integrating their knowledge and collaborating with like-minded stakeholders to contribute to improving people’s lives in Asia.
