With prices starting at THB 399,000 the Brio, the second car after the Nissan March to be produced under the Thai eco-car project, is targeted at young buyers and small families looking for a fuel-efficient city car. Honda says it plans to sell 40,000 units of the Brio during the first year.

"Although we are more concerned with the technology and the interest in new models than in sales, I am sure that more orders will be placed for new automobiles than last year," said Dr Prachin Eamlumnow, chairman of the organising committee.

"As much as THB 40 billion could be spent this year, considering the recovery in the automobile and finance sectors", he said.
