The commercial vehicle (CV) segment continues to dominate with a share of 56.6%, and it is expected to reach 57.3% in 2021, thanks to the government’s stimulus measures in response to the pandemic. Diesel powertrain sales increased from 54.0% in 2019 to 56.8% in 2020, driven by strong demand for the new Isuzu D-Max and updated Toyota Hilux.

Vehicles with a displacement of less than 1300 cc are the most popular segment in the Thai passenger vehicle (PV) market (28.5% market share in 2020). Demand is driven by green car models offered with reduced engine specifications. Considering the import tax and excise tax privileges on vehicles for BEVs, especially for Chinese imports, a surge in sales was observed in 2020.
