Domestic car sales down for 14th month

Domestic car sales shrank for a 14th straight month in July, dropping 24.8% from a year earlier to 59,335 vehicles as the coronavirus outbreak crushed demand, the Federation of Thai Industries said on Thursday.

But sales rose 2.28% from June, helped by easing virus restrictions and Bangkok's international motor show, the FTI said.

In June, car sales declined 32.6% from a year earlier.

Thailand is a regional vehicle production and export base for the world's top automobile manufacturers.
