Thailand: car market dropped 25% in July. Suzuki on the sky.

Finally July 2013 was the month to start the way back for the Thailand’s light passengers vehicles market, as the effect of incentive scheme was totally over and new vehicles demand was frustrated by stricter car loans conditions.

In July vehicles sold were 98.258, down 25.4% with cumulated figures at 834.667 units, up 13.3% from last year. We project the entire 2013 volume at 1.3 million. Following the first half at 736.000 units, the second half would be below 570.000.

Accordingly with Thailand’s Automotive Industry Club, vehicles exported in July were 82.710, down 14.0% from last year. Year to date export were 617.000, up 11.6%.
