ONE-TON PICKUP TRUCKS
Thanks to the rivalry between Isuzu D-Max and Toyota Vigo, the pickup
segment is heading for a record year as sales are expected to top the
400,000-mark for the first time in history. Based on 11-month sales of 390,039 units and an estimated 50,000 units
or more in December to close out the fourth quarter, the domestic pickup
market could well be worth 450,000 units this year. The segment expanded 21.5% from January to November compared to the same
period last year. Chevrolet (157.5%), Mitsubishi (31.9%), Toyota (22.2%) and Isuzu (19.5%)
provided the surge for the segment, the first three posting above
average growth rates. In fact, Isuzu and Toyota are the "market" from the
perspective of sales volume. In layman's terms, Isuzu and Toyota combine
almost equally to account for seven out of 10 pickups seen on the road.
Isuzu has a market share of 37.5% and Toyota 33.6%. Isuzu should top the commercial vehicle segment for the 23rd year
running with sales of 165,000 units, well ahead of Toyota which is
expected to net sales of about 145,000 units. Ford could give Chevrolet a run for its money next year when its
model-change pickup, previewed in concept form at the Motor Expo earlier
this month, hits the market. That said, Isuzu and Toyota should be followed by Mitsubishi (8.4%),
Nissan (7.2%), Chevrolet (5.8%), Ford (4.4%) and Mazda (2.8%), in that
order as the year comes to an end.
It's been a slow year for the passenger car segment. Even new compact
sedans, both model-change and cosmetic touch-ups, from Ford, Honda and
Toyota might not be able to turnaround the 11.8% drop in sales. However,
boost for the segment will come from Toyota and Honda. Toyota is still
the "market" with almost half of the total volume sold in the
segment - 79,369 units or 48.9%. Honda is second with 29% based on sales
of 47,046 units. For the whole year, Japanese mainstream volume-sellers
(Mitsubishi, Nissan and Mazda) sold about one-tenth of what Toyota and
Honda sell in a single month. The premium segment is dominated by
Mercedes-Benz which claims to have over 53% market share. Merc sales
were estimated at 7,166 units compared to BMW's 2,012 units.
It's going to be a record year for sport-utes whose sales could reach
40,000 units by the time curtain falls on 2005.Pickup-based SUVs and
their competitive pricing - thanks to more competitive excise taxes -
have spurred growth of this segment to unprecedented levels: 36,950
units sold during January-November.
In Thailand, sales of Hilux Vigo pickups, the first model in
the IMV family, passed 110,000 units after the first seven months of
production, with a 36% share of the market segment. Toyota announced in
2002 that Thailand would be the company's global manufacturing base for
pickup trucks, sport utility vehicles and diesel engines. Toyota has
already spent 30 billion baht since 2002 under its IMV programme,
doubling production capacity of pickup trucks at its Samrong plant in
Samut Prakan to 250,000 units per year and also expanding its parts
manufacturing facilities. The exact location of the new plant is still
not decided, but will be located near Bangkok.The new plant will have a
production capacity of 100,000 pickup trucks per year to complement
output at the Samrong plant. Construction of Toyota's first new plant of
century is tentatively set to begin within months, with completion
scheduled in 2007.Another three billion baht will go to the plan to
expand the production capacity of Toyota's plant at Gateway Industrial
Estate in Chachoengsao to 200,000 vehicles from the existing 110,000
units per year. The plant is dedicated to the production of sedans and
mini-multi-purpose vehicles, including the Camry, Corolla, Vios and Wish
models. The expansion of the Gateway plant will be completed next year.
