The latest estimate for purchases under the first-time car buyer scheme is 1.2 million vehicles, up from the original target of only 500,000, says Somchai Pulsawas, director-general of the Excise Department. 

The number of requests for excise tax rebates now stands at 1.1 million with a value of 73 billion baht.

"As we have 10 days left before the scheme ends on Dec 31, we believe we'll see a total of 1.2 million requests for tax rebates," Mr Somchai said yesterday.
