Hilux王座不保,Isuzu D-Max成2020年泰国最热销皮卡车型!

在我国,一提到皮卡车, 大家首先想起的肯定是Toyota Hilux,甚至人们将皮卡车都戏称为“Hailak”。而在泰国,Toyota的命运却没那么顺利,因为Isuzu D-Max已经成为了2020年泰国最热销的皮卡。根据Headlight Magazine提供的销售数据,2020年Isuzu D-Max在泰国共卖出了160,328辆,占据了高达43.9%的市场份额。这个数字相当惊人,而除了四月份Toyota Hilux重夺第一之外,D-Max去年每个月的销量都是皮卡车中的第一名。至于Hilux,Toyota的这款皮卡车在皮卡销量中排名第二,总销量为129,893辆。尽管在6月份进行过一次小升级,但这仍旧不足以让Hilux重登第一的宝座。而在这之前,Toyota Hilux在2018年和2019年两年中,一直是泰国的皮卡车销量冠军。皮卡市场是泰国市场规模最大的汽车市场,2020年总销量达到了364,887辆,占整个汽车市场的46.1%。新款D-Max可能还需要一些时日才会登陆大马,不过等待也是值得的,因为这款车拥有出色的安全配备,包括盲区侦测和后方横向来车预警等
