Vinfast to launch two electric cars globally next year

In March 2022, the Vietnamese carmaker Vinfast will launch the VF e35 and VF e36 globally. In the run-up to this launch, the company is opening branches in the US, Canada, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

Vinfast, the automotive division of the Vietnamese Vingroup, was only founded in 2017 but it has the ambition to become a global player. In Vietnam, the company sold 30,000 vehicles last year.

Vinfast unveiled its first electric car on the Vietnamese market in January this year and is planning to launch two models for sales across the globe next year. Prices and technical specifications have yet to be announced.

The company is also developing autonomous technology, having secured permission to test self-driving vehicles on public roads in California.
