We will be there on the 28th and 29th. Only way to make a good comparison of cars we want.

Besides, it's a motor show.

Maybe I'll drop by tomorrow, today is opening day and will most likely be extremely crowded. Weekends worse. Just a 20 minute bus ride from where I am in Bangkok...

I can never understand the Thai mentality of hitting imported vehicles with a Million % tax. If they were taxed as normal cars or perhaps just a little higher it would lead to growth in the vehicle market, more dealerships, more repairs, more spares sold, more employment.

Motor show propels car sales

https://www.bangkokpost.com/business/ne ... recent_box

Thailand's car market has performed well thus far in 2018, led by the 39th Bangkok International Motor Show, which recorded bookings growth for the first time in six years.

SET-listed auto show organiser Grand Prix International Plc (GPI) reported the auto show, which ended on Sunday, had bookings of 36,587 units, up by 18% last year.

Some 1.62 million visitors entered the 14-day auto show at Impact Muang Thong Thani, down from 1.65 million in 2017.

Jaturont Komolmis, GPI's chief operating officer, said the company is confident its total car bookings will result in positive momentum for the car market over the remaining months of this year.

"All car distributors offered attractive sales campaigns and hire-purchasing loans for car buyers, which created a highly competitive market at the auto show," he said.

GPI also reported Toyota had the highest car bookings with 5,689 units. Honda came in second with 5,133 bookings while Mazda was ranked third with 5,021 cars.

Isuzu and Mercedes-Benz were fourth and fifth with 3,920 and 2,297 bookings, respectively.

Battery electric vehicles booked 354 units, all from FOMM, which the manufacturer plans to deliver early next year.

The motor show had record-high bookings in 2012 of 57,058 units, propelled by the tax rebate programme for first-time car buyers.

In 2013, bookings dropped to 40,834 units, then 39,415 in 2014 and 37,027 in 2015.

The motor show recorded 32,571 car bookings in 2016 before falling to 31,000 in 2017.

Nonetheless, Surapong Paisitpatanapong, spokesman for the automotive industry club of the Federation of Thai Industries, said the bookings at the auto show indicate the overall market will hit over 900,000 cars sold in 2018, up by 3.3%.

The club reported local car sales rose by 13% to 142,011 cars sold from January to February.
