The top three manufacturers with the highest numbers of reservations reported were Izuzu, Honda and Toyota. It is expected that 40,000 vehicles will have been reserved by the end of the event on April 3rd.

Organizers also anticipated that car buying will remain lively this year despite an increase in the excise tax the year before, as people showed more interest in eco-friendly vehicles.

The 37th Bangkok International Motor Show is located at IMPACT, Muang Thong Thani, Challenger Hall 1-3. The event will continue until Sunday.
