We appreciate the trust customers have in our full hybrid e:HEV vehicles, which helped us to reach No. 1 in xEV sales in Thailand's automobile market with 26,660 units sold. This reflects confidence in the Honda brand and our full hybrid e:HEV vehicles, which make a great contribution to carbon neutrality. Our e:HEV vehicles also come with Honda SENSING intelligent safety technology, a system that helps prevent and reduce the risk of road accidents, which will help us get closer to zero traffic collision fatalities as per Honda's 2050 targets. Therefore, in 2023, we will continue to offer vehicles that meet customers' needs for various alternative energies."
