Inspite of the recent political turbulence the Kingdom of Thaland is manufacturing cars, trucks and pick ups trucks like never before.

Thai vehicle production rose by a staggering 96% year-on-year to 105,044 units in April, according to data released by the Federation of Thai Industries. Output was driven by a sharp rise in export demand and to a lesser extent by recovering domestic demand.

Compared with the 151,104 units produced in March, output was more than 30% lower, however.

Exports in April rose by 127% to 60,214 units, compared with depressed year-earlier levels of 26,526 units, with exports to Middle-Eastern markets particularly strong.

Cumulative production for the January-April period was 93% higher at 487,973 units.

The value of automotive exports, including built up vehicles, engines and components, rose by 76 % to THB 38.15 billion (USD 1.174 billion) during the four-month period.

Remember when Thailand used to be called the Detroit of Asia.
