At least 26 car and motorcycle manufacturers will be waiting for an expected audience of 1.8 million when the Bangkok International Motor Show opens to the public today.
"There are more joining us this year such as Volvo, Suzuki, Lotus and Subaru. Lots of car debuts are lining up in the show this year too," said Jaturont Komolmis, senior vice-president of Grand Prix International Co., Ltd. "No matter what the economy will be, car manufacturers are trying their best to push the new product into the market unstoppably."
With the theme Ecology Driving Save the Earth, the Bangkok Motor Show will be showcasing fuel-efficient cars from manufacturers, from in-production models like Nissan's March to concept cars like Honda's Eco Car and Toyota's RIN. Petrol-burning supercars will be there as well, particularly the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Gullwing coupe.
The Bangkok Motor Show will be held at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Center until April 6.
