The Thai new vehicle market enjoys an 11th consecutive month of year-on-year double-digit gains in July at +25.7% to 81.946 registrations, lifting the year-to-date volume up 20.2% to 571.064 units, on track to top the million annual sales milestone for the first time since 2013 as a 20.2% increase applied to the FY2017 score gives us a FY2018 tally of 1.047.700 deliveries. Strikingly, brand leader Toyota (+59%) more than doubles the market growth in August to 31.9% share vs. 29.4% so far in 2018, selling almost exactly double the volume as #2 Isuzu (+8%) at 16% while Honda (-0.1%) underperforms once again at 12.8% share. MG (+76%) and Mazda (+62%) are the other great performers in the Top 10 where Suzuki (-10%) is the only carmaker in negative and Nissan (+27%) matches the market with Ford (+17%), Mitsubishi (+16%) and Chevrolet (+1%) more timid. Further down, Kia (+90%), Scania (+61%), Hino (+60%) and Subaru (+46%) shine while we welcome Chinese JAC in the Thai charts at #24 with 6 sales for the month.

The Mazda2 is the best-selling passenger car in Thailand.

In the models ranking, the Toyota Hilux 3peats in pole position – something it hadn’t achieved since December 2016 – thanks to deliveries up a whipping 36% year-on-year to 14.7% share vs. 13.3% so far in 2018. The Isuzu D-Max is up “just” 11% to 13.5% but preserves a comfortable 8.000 unit-lead YTD. The Mazda2 (+73%) scores a second podium ranking in a row, outselling all passenger cars in the country. The Toyota Fortuner (+221%), Nissan March (+66%), Toyota Corolla (+50%) and Mitsubishi Triton (+37%) also shine while the Toyota Yaris Ativ (#11) tops all recent launches (<12 months) ahead of the Toyota C-HR (#14) and MG ZS (#18).
