       2014             -33.7           881,832
    - November's sale decline was due to the high base effect
last year as consumers rushed to buy cars before tax changes,
the FTI said.
    - In January-November, auto sales dropped 2.3 percent from a
year earlier, it said.
    - The FTI has forecast domestic sales at 750,000 cars this
year and 780,000 units in 2017. Sales slid 9.3 percent last
year. 
    - Annual domestic auto sales have been weak since May 2013,
following the fading effect of a government first-car subsidy
scheme, which ended in 2012, when sales jumped 81 percent.
    - Thailand is a regional vehicle production and export base
for the world's top carmakers.
