Cambodia to manufacture electric auto rickshaws

Onion Mobility’s electric tuk tuk

Cambodia is set to enter the vehicle manufacturing industry with locally produced electric auto rickshaws, according to a report in the Phnom Penh Post which referred to the Council for the Development of Cambodia (CDC).

According to the CDC, it will issue a final registration certificate to Onion Mobility, a local subsidiary of South Korean-owned MVLLABS, the company behind South Korea’s ride-hailing service Tada.

Onion plans to invest $20 million in an electric motorbike and auto-rickshaw assembly plant in the Suvannaphum Special Economic Zone in Cambodia’s Kandal province south of Phnom Penh, which is expected to generate 380 jobs as a start.

The company said it is now speeding up construction of the production line for the country’s first locally-assembled electric auto rickshaws and will soon import components for assembly, mostly from South Korea. However, a part of the components will be locally made, the report noted. Production is expected to commence in early May.

If successful, the electric vehicles will be exported to neighbourign countries

Onion Mobility’s products will be equipped with high-powered batteries that must be replaced at charging stations which the company will be setting up. Initially, the driving range will be limited to Phnom Penh, but will be extended to more provinces soon after.

If the product proves successful, the company will expand production for export to neighbouring countries, the report noted.
