TD Cars’ Managing Director Edward Teo said that Thailand would be the 15th export destination for the TD2000 which is assembled locally by Proton. “Our Malaysian-made car has successfully sparked interest among people from all over the world and we are excited at this opportunity to share our concept of classic open-top driving in Thailand,” he added in a statement.
