The continued popularity of Mazda vehicles in Thailand enabled the brand to achieve 48-per-cent growth in May from the same period last year, with sales of 5,881 units during the month.




Year-to-date sales reached 26,886 units, reflecting the country’s “spectacular” economic growth in 2018, Chanchai Trakarnudomsuk, president of Mazda Sales (Thailand), said on Monday.

During the first quarter, the economy enjoyed 4.8-per-cent expansion, which was higher than what analysts had expected. 

This was due to a large number of positive factors, including growth in investments, production and exports, in addition to tourism, Chanchai said.
