Only 337 cars of all kinds were shipped to Vietnam in the first month of 2018.
Of all these imports, there were only 17 passenger cars with nine seats or less, amounting to 567,000 USD. No cars were imported from Indonesia and India.
In 2017, Indonesia had been on of the top countries after Thailand, with the highest number of car exports to Vietnam. India too had a relatively large number of exports in 2016. However, in January this year, neither of these countries exported any car to Vietnam.
Thailand has lost its recognition as the largest import car market for Vietnam, with only 36 vehicles exported to the country since the beginning of the year.
