No need to keep an eye on. They are so ugly one cannot miss seeing them when on the expressway.

Who cares if they are ugly? A bit like Thai women in that respect.

 

I'd like a Tesla pick-up with a solar cell roof and bonnet, for about 400k baht. 500km range. Next year?

But how does it perform on a dirt-track with pot-holes the size of small cities ?

 

Sounds like the average thai road .

I wonder how much more comfortable it will be for the 10-12 “passengers” riding in the back bed?  Airbags??  Seatbelts back there?  (Full sarcasm of course!)

B 4 million (UKP 100K) for a luxury pick-up? The mind boggles; won't fly off the shelve for the time being.

I assume that the main reason for the pick-up popularity is the lower taxation/excise in Thailand. So another toy for the rich and famous has been introduced now with a pick-up featuring the world's most famous star on the bonnet!

But if Merc discontinue their venture it may become a classic....😋

Who on God's earth would pay over 100,000 GBP for a pick up truck?

Australians

Just one more brand that Thai drivers can kill themselves ( and thousands of others) in. 

I pretty sure that the vast majority of road deaths are moped related.

 

I would love to see your stats on Thai fatalities in pick up trucks of any brand.

I'm not disputing the death statistics (can't anyone on this forum read?), I was asking about the IQ/death correlation remark.

I don't think high IQ has anything to do with driving ability, the questions posed in the

tests I've done have no logical link to driving.

 

What I think the poster who brought up the driving/IQ connection was clumsily trying to

say was that all Thais are stupid and bad drivers. A double bash in one comment is

pretty good going for this place.

 

 

By the way, I did abysmally in all the IQ tests I attempted but I am probably the best driver

on the planet!!

 

Back on topic, it does look like a Nissan with a Merc badge. It is an

awful amount of money to spend on any kind of vehicle, let alone a

pick up truck.

If you were to give Thai drivers an IQ test of driving questions the vast majority would have a very low score. And that is not Thai bashing.
