For 2016, organisers have got together 37 car brands from 9 countries plus 21 brands of motorcycle from 8 countries. The highlight of the expo will be the Hyundai Enduro concept car – a 3-door crossover SUV in the vein of Hyundai’s Veloster.


Mitsubishi is also expected to show the XM Concept, a vehicle that blends SUV and MPV styles.

Nissan too have the ‘Navara EnGuard Concept’ – but this is one has a more commercial application, as it is a rescue truck.


The Expo will also feature the Asia Pacific launch of the Triumph Thruxton R T120, and the Thailand launch of the Kawasaki Supernaked Z900 and Ryuka Breakout 150.

Local car launches include the Foton Tunland, the Hyundai Tucson, Jaguar F-Pace, MG3, MG GS 1.5 Turbo, Porsche 718 Cayman, Rayttle 28 and the Volvo S90.


The event opened this morning with a tribute to Thailand’s late monarch, who passed last month.
