Zapp Expands International Footprint With New Design and Technology Campus in Bangkok, Thailand

The Design and Technology Campus will support the development and engineering of next-generation high-performance electric vehicles and creates a base for Asia-Pacific market growth.

Zapp Electric Vehicles Ltd., a U.K.-based, high-performance, two-wheel electric vehicle company, has expanded its international footprint as part of its strategy to grow its business and fulfill growing demand in the largely underpenetrated electric two-wheel market. 

Zapp’s new Design and Technology Campus is based at the heart of Thailand’s automotive and technology ecosystem. The new campus is home to Zapp’s team of designers and engineers who are developing Zapp’s next generation of high-performance electric vehicles. The Thai facility includes a design studio, prototyping and engineering workshops, and office space. 

This is Zapp’s second global facility, joining its U.K.-based operations, which includes the Zapp Customer Experience Centre & Global Training Centre for Zapp’s network of authorized retailers. Customers can build and specify their motorcycles at the Customer Experience Centre as well as test ride the i300, Zapp’s first high-performance electric vehicle, on the Bicester test track.

“Our new Design and Technology Campus is a significant milestone in our strategy to deliver high-performance electric vehicles to customers around the world. Being located near the Bangkok Cybertech District and in the automotive manufacturing hub of Thailand gives us access to experienced motorcycle engineering talent and supply chain expertise in one of Southeast Asia’s largest motorcycle markets,” said Swin Chatsuwan, founder and CEO of Zapp. “Our team of designers and engineers has already designed and developed our award-winning i300 and will look to shape the future of the two-wheel electric vehicle market through an exciting pipeline of new Zapp high-performance vehicles.”
