US carmaker Ford Motor expects Thai sales to grow healthily this year after rising by 38.7% year-on-year in the first two months of 2017, led primarily by the Thai-made Ford Ranger pickup.
Narong Sritalayon, deputy managing director of Ford Thailand, said vehicle sales in Thailand this year are expected to grow at the same pace as the country's overall domestic market or 4%, reaching 800,000 units.
Ford reported its domestic car sales from January to February totalled 7,450 units, a rise of 38.7% from the same period last year. The company's Ranger nameplate led the pack, accounting for 80% of all deliveries.
