Most locally manufactured Vinfast EVs for sale in US

VOV.VN - About 600,000 out of 750 electric vehicles bearing the VinFast brand to be sold in the United States will be manufactured in Vietnam, revealed Pham Nhat Vuong, chairman of Vingroup, the parent company of VinFast.

The remaining 150,000 EVs will be manufactured in its plant to take shape in North Carolina, the US, the executive said at an annual shareholders meeting held on May 11.

Vuong said Vinfast plans to market 17,000 EVs in the US this year, and pre-orders for the cars have now reached over 4,000.

He admitted that fierce competition is a great challenge in the US market, and Vingroup will focus on three main factors in order to gain a firm foothold there. These plans include releasing high-quality products and services at reasonable prices with a battery leasing strategy, in addition to good after-sales service.

The chairman went on to outline that the localisation rate of Vinfast has reached 60%, and the group has set a target of raising the rate to 80% in the coming time.

According to the CEO, the demand for electric vehicles is currently rising across the world, while supply remains limited. Therefore, this is a golden opportunity to dominate the electric car market and build a truly global electric car brand, he stated.
