BANGKOK, Aug 20 (Reuters) - Domestic car sales in Thailand shrank for a 14th straight month in July, dropping 24.8% from a year earlier to 59,335 vehicles as the coronavirus outbreak crushed demand, the Federation of Thai Industries (FTI) said on Thursday.
But sales rose 2.28% from June, helped by easing virus restrictions and Bangkok’s international motor show, it said.
In June, car sales declined 32.6% from a year earlier.
