"The legendary GT-R super sports car will be the star of our booth at the Bangkok Auto Salon 2019, along with the highly customizable Navara Black edition 2019, Almera Sportech, and the new frame-based Nissan Terra luxury SUV," said Sureetip La-Ongthong Chomthongdee, Nissan's vice president for marketing in Thailand. "Attendees can also learn more about how Nissan is also supporting the electrification of Thailand and ensuring home charging options for our valued customers through deals with MEA, PEA, Delta, and others," she added.

The Auto Salon, held at IMPACT Challenger Hall 3 from 3 – 7 July, is billed as the largest modified automotive show and sales event of its kind in ASEAN, and Nissan will be offering its valued customers a range of options to accessorize and customize the vehicle of their choice.

In addition to experiencing the GT-R, customers also can view a range of Nissan vehicles, from the tough, intelligent Nissan Navara Black Edition 2019 and the new Nissan Terra, a frame-based intelligent SUV, to the all-new Nissan LEAF, the world's best-selling Electric Vehicle and icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility (NIM).
