VinFast models to be unveiled at Paris Motor Show
Hai Phong, 18 July 2018 – This Vietnamese company is developing its own range of world-class vehicles to be produced at an all-new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in northern Vietnam. Spearheading the company’s launch, a SUV and a sedan – both developed by Pininfarina – will make their public debut at the Paris Motor Show in October 2018.
“We have the resources, scalability and commitment to become a significant new player in the global automotive industry,” comments James DeLuca, CEO, VinFast Trading and Production LLC.
“We are immensely proud to be the first volume automotive manufacturer in Vietnam, and the first to participate in a major international motor show. We look forward to introducing our new brand and two new models in Paris. Our show stand will also prominently feature the best of Vietnam, demonstrating the passion and tenacity that we will bring to the global automotive stage,” he added.
With Vietnamese spirit, Italian design and German technology, the two models have been developed to international standards after the Vietnamese people voted on their favourite design presented in October 2017. The aim is to raise the profile of the brand and these two models ahead of the start of sales in September 2019.
VinFast is working with world-leading European design, engineering and production technology partners to create products that meet international standards and customer expectations in terms of design, quality, dynamics, premium in-car features and the ownership experience.
VinFast is a subsidiary of Vingroup, one of Vietnam’s largest privately-held businesses, with annual revenues in 2017 of 3.8 billion USD. The group is mainly in construction, estate sectors besides education, healthcare, agriculture, tourism and consumer retail sectors.
