    - March's sales were helped by launches of new models, Bangkok's
international motor show, higher commodity prices and government spending, the
FTI said in a statement.
    - The FTI has forecast domestic sales of 800,000 cars in 2017.
    - Annual domestic auto sales fell over the past four years, following the
end of a government car subsidy scheme in 2012, when sales jumped 81 percent.
    - Thailand is a regional vehicle production and export base for the world's
top carmakers.
