Domestic car sales shrank for a 16th straight month in September, down 4.1% from a year earlier to 77,433 vehicles, as the coronavirus outbreak hurt demand, the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) said on Monday.
However, sales were up 12.4% from August, helped by easing virus restrictions, government relief measures and launches of new car models, it said.
In August, car sales dropped 12.1% from a year earlier.
