HOW IT ALL STARTED

SAS Rapid ‘ CAR, a prominent manufacturer of autocycles, began its journey in Thailand in the late 1980s. Founded by Surachai Amornrungroj, the company initially focused on producing small, economical vehicles suitable for Thailand’s dense urban environments and rural landscapes. The autocycles, three-wheeled vehicles combining the features of a motorcycle and a car, became immensely popular due to their affordability, fuel efficiency, and versatility.

Kaew Carey, an engineer with a passion for innovative transportation solutions, aimed to create a vehicle that was not only practical but also environmentally friendly. The first models were designed to cater to local needs, featuring compact designs and robust construction, suitable for the diverse terrains of Thailand. The early success of these models laid the foundation for the company’s growth and expansion.

Our mission is to provide a friendly club for owners and enthusiasts of Classic autocycles.
