... property developer Sansiri Plc has created a ride-sharing service platform at its residential projects and community malls, expecting to expand to all projects this year, mainly in Bangkok.
Sansiri announced a collaboration with six companies...
The six companies are AP Honda (a local distributor of Japanese motorcycles), Uber (the world's leading ride-sharing service), Ofo (a dockless bike-sharing service), Haupcar (the first car-sharing platform in Thailand), Sharge (a provider of electric vehicle charging points) and EA Anywhere (a provider of electric charging stations).
A.P. Honda is generally known as Honda Motorcycle Thailand. Its headquarters are in Samut Prakan, Thailand. A.P. Honda plays a significant role as a center in distributing Honda motorcycles to Asian and European markets.

AP Honda will provide three eco-friendly motorcycles for the service platform at the Habito Community Mall.
Suchart Arunsaengroj, vice-president of AP Honda, said the company plans to introduce electric and hybrid motorcycles next month at the Bangkok International Motor Show.
But Mr Suchart said AP Honda cannot disclose any further details in terms of model name and retail price, or whether relying on local production or imports from Japan.
In October, Tokyo-based parent firm Honda Motor Co held a showcase of the Honda PCX Hybrid and PCX Electric at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show. Those two models will be introduced this year for commercial purposes.
"At the moment, AP Honda plans for the local showcase in March, while deliveries to customers are expected around the last quarter of 2018," Mr Suchart said. "Three motorcycles for Sansiri are set for the same timeline of deliveries, due to both parties having to finalise how to provide the sharing service platform."
Sharge and EA Anywhere will partner with Sansiri to provide charging service for electric cars and motorcycles under the Smart Move platform.
