EV startup VinFast has officially entered the US market, signing agreements with its first five independent dealers across four states. This strategic move marks a significant step in the company’s ambitious plans to establish a nationwide presence and challenge established players in the electric vehicle landscape.
Five dealerships, strategically located in North Carolina, New York, Texas, and Kansas, will initially focus on selling the VinFast VF 8 all-electric SUV. This sleek and stylish SUV offers a compelling alternative to traditional gas-powered vehicles, boasting impressive range and advanced technology features.
Customers who purchase or lease a VinFast EV will benefit from the company’s comprehensive aftersales policies, including a 10-year/125,000-mile warranty for the vehicle and a 10-year unlimited mileage warranty for the battery under non-commercial use. This commitment to quality and customer satisfaction is sure to resonate with environmentally conscious car buyers seeking peace of mind.
“This is an important step affirming VinFast’s commitment to expanding its retail sales network and shortening the time to deliver our products to market,” said Ms. Tran Mai Hoa, Deputy CEO of Sales and Marketing, VinFast Global. “Collaboration with dealers allows VinFast to quickly bring US customers high quality electric vehicles, good prices and excellent aftersales policies, further promoting our mission of a sustainable future for all.”
Leith Automotive Group, one of the chosen dealerships, expressed its enthusiasm for the partnership. “We are very excited to be one of the first VinFast dealers in the US and the very first in North Carolina,” stated Mr. Danny Williams, Chief Operating Officer. “After interacting with VinFast’s executive team and experiencing their vehicles firsthand, we were captivated by the brand and knew it was a perfect addition to the Leith Automotive Group.”
With plans to expand its dealer network to 125 locations across the US, VinFast is poised for rapid growth in the coming years. The company’s innovative approach, coupled with its commitment to quality and customer service, has the potential to disrupt the traditional automotive industry and pave the way for a more sustainable future.
This is just the beginning of VinFast’s journey in the US market. With its sleek designs, competitive pricing, and generous warranty packages, the Vietnamese automaker is well-positioned to capture the hearts and minds of American EV buyers. As VinFast continues to expand its reach and introduce new models, it will be exciting to see how this young company shapes the future of electric mobility.
