But it seems that this article does answer a question that many are interested to know: What will Eco-Cars cost? Or perhaps the best way to put it is: How cheap will Eco-Cars be?
As you scan down through the article you eventually meet this statement:
Thailand's small eco-cars will be selling in the range of $16,000 and up.

Correction : The Naza Forza with airbags and alloy wheels actually carries a THB 30,000 premium over the standard model. This means that at THB 379,000 it is approaching Proton Savvy money. Also, these prices are introductory, and although Naza has extended the duration of the reduction period. Sorry for the error in the original posting.

The new Honda Jazz is attracting a lot of attention at the Bangkok International Motor Show, the event that Honda decided to use to launch the 2nd generation Jazz. In much the same way as the new Accord stole the 2007 Motor Expo, the Jazz did the same job for Honda at the 2008 Motor Show, with the Honda exhibit constantly crowded with visitors pouring all over the new car.
There was a time when Volvo had the monopoly on car safety. Not anymore. In Europe, with the Euro NCAP testing, the majority of new cars are proving to provide excellent crash performance.
The 2008 Toyota Corolla sedan, known here in Thailand as the Altis, also managed to turn in a very good crash test result, with a 5-star rating.
Honda have updated their Thai website and it's all to do with the new Jazz. The first hint that something is up is when the model line-up appears at the base of the main page:
Ford have a surprise in store for visitors to the Bangkok International Motor Show, kicking off on 28 March at Bitec. Ford's website has a little button suggesting that there is going to be a surprise at the motor show, and offers free tickets.
Following the link brings you to a page which seems to give away everything. Surprised?
