After hitting a record 1.44 million registrations in 2012, new vehicle sales in Thailand are down 8% year-on-year in 2013 to 1,324,722 units. Toyota is still king of the castle by very far, adding up to 445,225 units for a 33.6% market share. Honda follows at 211,006 units and 15.9%, just above Isuzu at 207,257 and 15.6%. Far below we have Mitsubishi (7.8%), Nissan (7.2%) and Chevrolet (4.2%). Notice also Mercedes at #11, BMW at #12, Hyundai at #13 and 0.3% and DongFeng at #17.

Now we also have a models ranking for the Full Year, and the entire Top 6 is unchanged vs. 2012, with the Toyota Hilux and Isuzu D-Max perennial leaders with 206,936 sales and 15.6% share and 178,437 units and 13.5% respectively. In third position, the Toyota Vios remains the only passenger car to sell more than 100,000 units this year, boosted by the new generation at 103,115 units and 7.8%, above the Honda City (7%), Mitsubishi Triton (3.2%) and Nissan Almera (3%). The Suzuki Swift makes its first appearance inside the Thai Top 10 at #7 and the Mitsubishi Mirage is up one spot to #9.

Mitsubishi Attrage Thailand 2013. Picture courtesy of attrageclubthailand.comThe Mitsubishi Attrage is the most successful all-new model in 2013 at #27.

However as January 2014 sales have shown, this ranking is about to be turned upside down with the arrival of the new generation Toyota Yaris, the Isuzu MU-X, Nissan Juke and Mazda CX-5… Further down, notice the Ford Ranger up 9 spots on 2012 to #11, the Honda Amaze up to #15, the Mitsubishi Attrage landing at #27, Nissan Pulsar at #44, Chevrolet Spin at #47, Proton Exora at #49, Volvo V40 at #58 and the Proton Preve at #60.

  5. In the statistics for all brands the sale of passenger cars and commercial vehicles should be separated!

    As an example Volvo passenger cars and Volvo commercial vehicles are owned by entirely different companies though the brand is common.

    To put together the sale for these companies like they do for Thailand is confusing.

    This seems also to be done in statistics regarding Malaysia, Colombia, Peru and so on.
