BANGKOK -- China's Great Wall Motors showed off its electric offerings at the Bangkok International Motor Show that kicked off Wednesday, highlighting the inroads made by Chinese automakers in the Thai market, long Japan's turf.

Held in the capital's suburbs and running until April 4, the event is among Southeast Asia's largest auto shows. Last year's event was postponed until July due to the coronavirus outbreak.
