illustrating the company’s advanced manufacturing capabilities and determination to develop electric vehicles and bring green transportation to all markets.

VF 5, VF e34, VF 6, and VF 7, belonging to segments A to C, are slated to be the first electric vehicle models to launch in Indonesia.

VinFast said its vehicles have a modern, youthful design, are integrated with advanced technology to meet the diverse needs of many consumers, and offered with flexible sales and outstanding after-sales policies, making sustainable transportation more accessible to everyone.

To ensure convenient charging, VinFast said it will partner with local suppliers to establish a nationwide charging network.
