Ford Motor Co has set a lofty goal of using its Thai factory as an Asean manufacturing hub once it commences eco-car production after the Board of Investment (BoI) approves its development plan. 

Ford is one of 10 automobile makers including five existing eco-car manufacturers that officially applied for the second phase of the government's eco-car scheme at the end of last month, with a combined investment of 139 billion baht.

The 10 projects are set to produce 1.58 million eco-cars with investment about 100 billion baht higher than the combined outlay from the five eco-car manufacturers in the first phase.
