The Thai new light vehicle market continues to slip away: down another 13% year-on-year in June to just 60.322 registrations, pulling the half year 2015 total down 16% to 369.109 units. Toyota sells exactly double the amount of the #2 brand Isuzu at 36% share vs. 18%, with Honda strong again at 13.1% in third position, Mitsubishi (6.3%) overtaking Nissan 5.2%) above Mazda (4.9%), Ford (4.5%), Suzuki (2.8%) and Mercedes (2.1%). Now that the new generation Revo is in cruising mode (for only its 2nd full month in market), the Toyota Hilux shoots up to 21.3% market share with 12.824 sales, including 12.452 Revo.
The Isuzu D-Max concedes the year-to-date leadership and lodges a paltry 8.832 sales and 14.6% this month. If the Toyota Vios holds onto the third spot with 4.2% share, it is now threatened for the Thai #1 passenger car title by the Honda HR-V, going from strength to strength and gaining another spot to land at an all-time high #4 with a record 2.453 sales and 4.1% share, overtaking the Honda City (#6) while the Toyota Yaris is up one spot to #5. The Mitsubishi Triton is back up to #7 with the new generation accounting for 84% of sales.
Further down, the Mazda2 is back inside the Top 10 thanks to the success of the newly launched sedan variant, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport jumps 10 spots on May to #16, the Ford Fiesta is up 8 to #20 and the Nissan X-Trail up 9 to #22. Chinese manufacturer MG is stepping up its game in Thailand with a record 300 sales this month, 280 of which are estimated to be for the new MG 3, which earns it a spot among Thailand’s Top 30 best-sellers.
