Electric cars require less maintenance than traditional cars, which will lead to layoffs in the automotive workshop sector.

 

Brakes, too?

Thailand Number of Registered Vehicles was reported at 20,493,253 Unit in Feb 2024 excluding motorcycles

if you include motorcycles the total would be closer to 44 million

Once you exclude commercial and agricultural vehicles  that leaves approx 12.5 million vehicles on the road

remove all the EV registered between  January 2020 and 31st January 2024 approx 102,090 or in % terms 0.8% so approx 12.4 million ice vehicles registered on the road January 2024

The figures can be found on the internet unfortunately from media links that are not allowed on these forums

However, there is salvation, and that is specialized labor. For 20-30 years, cars have become increasingly computerized, and this requires a new type of mechanic who not only replaces parts, but has the ability to make deeper analyzes and more advanced troubleshooting

Another rip off by the manufactures as in Thailand it seems only they can get into the cars diagnostic computer and you have to pay there rip off prices for parts. Hopefully in the future in Thailand other workshops will learn how to use there own "Box' to diagnose.

What does that have to do with Thailand and why is it a ripoff? That's been standard practice for many years now world-wide. It takes a while but eventually independent workshops also get access in most cases.

Yep, nothing to do with Thailand .My friend runs a car workshop in Australia and has had to request customers take their cars to specific dealers[BMW is one] as they cannot get access to the codes. Certain codes on my 2019 Triumph 1200 cannot be cleared with a mate's code reader[which cost 8K] but need to go to the dealship.

The availability of non-manufacturer software and the scope of what it can do depends on the popularity of the model. All software can be 'broken in to' but it has to be worthwhile for the software manufacturer.

 

Some manufacturers software has been hacked and copied and is available either freely or cheaply on the web.  I can buy a copy of my Kawasaki's diagnostic programme and the cable to connect into the diagnostic port, very cheaply on the web for use on a laptop. The bad news for you may be that there are not millions of Triumph 1200's out there.

 

Do an online search for your particular model.

Ah Yes.

They'll be the ones with the "Made in China" sticker on the back.

Nonsense.

 

(source Copilot AI, question "how many ev's were sold in canada in 2023")

 

In 2023, Canada achieved a significant milestone in electric vehicle (EV) adoption. Approximately 184,578 zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) were registered, accounting for 10.8% of newly registered vehicles. This marks the first time the 10% mark has been surpassed, according to Statistics Canada data. A “zero-emission” vehicle (ZEV) is either all-electric or benefits from a plug-in hybrid configuration1.

Interestingly, nearly half of all electric vehicles were registered in either Quebec or British Columbia. These provinces continue to lead the way in promoting sustainable transportation choices1.

The growth in EV sales is encouraging, and it reflects consumers’ increasing interest in cleaner and more efficient mobility options. As the EV market continues to evolve, we can expect further advancements and greater adoption of electric vehicles in the coming years21.

 

Sounds like TAT

 

you nonsense

No report studying people with polls etc is more valid than the government produced data, 2023 figures for EV registrations are up nearly 50% on 2022.

 

and "Autotrader"? Really?
