VinFast is a division of the Vietnamese conglomerate Vingroup and promises to start delivering VF8 and VF9 electric vehicles later this year and has already started taking pre-orders in some regions.

Concern Vingroup made its debut in the auto industry in 2019, opening a car plant in Haiphong, Vietnam – it can produce around 250,000 cars annually. Around 33,000 gasoline-powered vehicles were sold in the first 11 months of 2021. Now the company promises to cease production of internal combustion engine cars completely by the end of 2022, when it will become an “all-electric” business. According to the automaker, VinFast will be the first company in the world to completely stop producing cars with gasoline engines. In addition, the automaker plans to organize the production of electric vehicles in the USA by the end of 2024.

In December, VinFast became the first Vietnamese company to start selling electric vehicles on the local market. It planned to sell about 100 electric vehicles in December and January 2000. The manufacturer expects a highly competitive market in Europe and the USA – General Motors, Volvo and many other car giants presented their models at CES.

In the United States, according to VinFast, the VF8 model will start at $ 41,000 and the VF9 will start at $ 56,000, compared to $ 40,000 for the Tesla Model 3. It is argued that such a model will reduce the cost of servicing electric vehicles by car owners.
