Vinfast also wants to sell electric cars in Germany

Asian automakers are increasingly conquering the Western market as well. With the triumphant advance of electromobility, this has become even more pronounced. After all, some companies from the Far East are considered real experts when it comes to battery technology and electric drives. However, one first thinks of brands from China and Japan here. Now, with Vinfast, another Asian manufacturer wants to make a profit in Germany alongside Hyundai, Kia, Toyota and Co. However, this one comes from Vietnam – a country that is not exactly known for its automotive economy.

Salesrooms planned in Germany

Since for the fewest Europeans the name Vinfast might be a concept, the Vietnamese want to show off properly at their premiere. Thus one would like to open in the Netherlands, Germany and France equal 50 sales rooms. Not only will you be able to see the manufacturer’s models on site. On top of that, you’ll be able to buy them there directly. Of the at least 25 stores that are to open in Germany alone, the first selected cities have already been determined. Vinfast stores are to be set up in Hamburg, Berlin and Cologne, among other places.

Currently five electric cars in the lineup

A look at Vinfast’s product lineup certainly looks promising. Although the e-car manufacturer is still relatively young, it can already boast five different models. If you compare this to Polestar, for example, that is quite remarkable. With the Polestar 3, the company sponsored by Volvo was able to present just the first pictures of the second all-electric car from its own ranks a few days ago. Two of Vinfast’s five electric cars are e-SUVs. They go by the names VF e35 and VF e36. The VF 5, 6 and 7, on the other hand, are to be electric cars with somewhat flatter shapes. In terms of battery policy, Vinfast wants to follow a similar path as Renault, for example.

Thus, one is supposed to pay a rent for the battery of the electric cars. However, unlike the French car manufacturer, this is initially without alternative. After all, there is simply no purchase option for the batteries yet. Soon, however, Vinfast’s vehicles will also be sold with a battery for purchase. The reason for this is not least the possibility of being able to sell the vehicles far more cheaply than many of the competitors. If you add the monthly rental fee, the costs usually balance out again. We are curious to see how the market launch for the Vietnamese automaker will go in this country. Since competition always stimulates business, a newcomer is always welcome. Unfortunately, the website of the manufacturer cannot be reached yet.
