Honda's Automobile Exports from Thailand grow by 19% in 2015

 
BangkokHonda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd. today announced its automobile exports from Thailand in 2015 grow a total value of 83.1 billion baht, an increase of 19% from last year. The growth was largely attributed to an increasing demand of the City model in Mexico and HR-V model in Australia. The 2015 growth reflects Honda’s remarkable global success of automobiles produced in Thailand.   
 
The total Honda’s automobile CBU exports in 2015 increased by 44% in value to 37.9 billion baht as compared to last year. This continuous growth was driven by the strong demand for Honda models in the countries, such as Australia and Mexico. The City, HR-V, and CR-V were top export models, accounting for around 70% of the total export units.
 
Total automobile CKD exports increased 5% in value to 40.4 billion baht from the demand of Honda automobile plants in Indonesia, Malaysia and India for assembly of their domestic models.
 
“We are pleased with the export performance of Thai operations in the year of 2015 supported by attractive Honda models, such as HR-V and Jazz, and remarkable sales performance in the exported destinations.” Mr. Pitak Pruittisarikorn, Chief Operating Officer of Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd., commented.
 
From the Thai production base, Honda also exports supporting products such as automobile spare parts, accessories parts, and jig and molds for automobile production lines. Exports of automobile spare parts and accessories parts increased by 30% in value to 3.4 billion baht, thanks mainly to the increasing demand in Malaysia, Australia, and India.
 
“Adding to the current manufacturing operations at Honda Assembly Plant in Rojana Industrial Park, Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya, we plan to start operation at our new plant in Prachinburi within this year, which will become one of the most technologically advanced and eco-friendly plants in the Asia and Oceania region.” Mr. Pitak added. “The new plant will support our manufacturing and export operations  for our customers worldwide in the future.
