Mr. Vuong The Trung, an American overseas Vietnamese in New York, with his wife and 2 children, was present at VinFast's booth early. He shared that he had heard information about VinFast before, but this was the first time experiencing an electric car in Vietnam. This customer expressed a special impression of the intelligent virtual assistant on the VF 8. “This will be my next car”, this person said.
I'm not really keen on the Asian auto industry since China has released too many cars and EVs in recent years, and they have nothing but the same designs and profiles coming from other brands. But VinFast actually got me to look at their EVs. They have their own signature designs for all their SUVs. It's what people in the US are looking for. If you look at their US marketing, you can tell they are taking this seriously. It looks like VinFast is the second Asian country (after China) that putting considerable effort into the American market. What makes it a little bit harder, while China's EVs usually have low prices, the VF 9 asking price is close to a Telsa Model Y. Carscoop said the VF 9 starts at $56,000 / €49,280 for the Eco and at $61,000 / €53,413 for the Plus (not include taxes or EV tax incentives). VinFast is offering a 10-year / 124,000-mile warranty. They've already had more than 24,000 pre-orders for the VF 8 and VF 9. What do you guys think?
