    - July's sales were helped by launches of new car models and higher
commodity prices, the FTI said in a statement.
    - The FTI raised its forecast for domestic sales this year to 830,000 cars
from 800,000 cars, but cut export forecast to 1.1 million vehicles from 1.2
million.
    - Annual domestic auto sales declined during 2013-2016, following the end of
a government car subsidy scheme in 2012, when sales surged 81 percent.
    - Thailand is a regional vehicle production and export base for the world's
top carmakers.
