The only thing that might turn people off from the cars is the battery technology. VinFast didn’t reveal details about their battery tech or where it will be manufactured, but apparently they plan on having one in Vietnam. They already announced partnership with other EV makers like Panasonic or LG Chem to supply batteries for their EVs. (Duy comemnts: should reply with a link of news that VinFast just commenced phase of 1 the battery factory (gigafactory) in Ha Tinh, Vietnam)

In terms of design, the VinFast EV lineup looks pretty unique, although not really outstanding. On the other hand, it looks promising for a Vietnamese automaker’s first venture into the US market.

I think such a car has a very good design compared to other EVs

24.000 pre-orders is a good signal for a car brand at the debut stage :)))

 I agree. The figure of 24,000 orders is not too much for Vinfast if you think about what they are offering customers in terms of batteries - all of which are things that customers worry about EV.
