At the EVS35, which takes place from June 11-15, VinFast has introduced its smart electric vehicles VF 8 and VF 9 that debuted at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show and CES 2022.

Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh asked the Ministry of Industry and Trade to study policies to promote the development of the domestic automobile industry, in line with the growing global trend towards electric cars.

The request was to response to the proposal of the Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (VAMA).

VAMA said that Vietnam needed to have an automobile industry strategy in line with the growing global trend toward electric cars that contributes to Vietnam’s commitment to net-zero carbon emission at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26). It proposed an electric car development programme to be raised together with a roadmap to convert from fossil-fuel cars to electric cars and an action plan to implement COP26 commitments./.
