HÀ NỘI — VinFast is the first winner of the award “A Star is Born” from the organisation AUTOBEST, which recognises automobiles available on the European market, at the Paris Motor Show 2018 from October 1 to 16.
For a car to become an AUTOBEST winner, it must represent the best offering for most European customers. Price, service network, spare parts distribution and versatility are the most important criteria in the voting process.
“What VinFast is doing is quite extraordinary,” commented Dan Vardie, Chairman of AUTOBEST.
“They have developed two new vehicles and constructed an incredible new manufacturing complex in Việt Nam – and the business was only established a year ago. What is even more astonishing is that its plans and ambitions go beyond just setting up a car company; it is single-handedly starting Vietnam’s status as an international car manufacturing nation. We felt compelled to recognise its achievements with this first-ever AUTOBEST ‘New star’ award,” said Vardie.
James DeLuca, CEO of VinFast said: “For us, the 2018 Paris Motor Show is about introducing VinFast to the world. The feedback on our first two models so far has been tremendous. For our efforts to be recognised by such a respected international body of automotive journalists as AUTOBEST is a fantastic reward for the hard work and dedication of everyone at VinFast.”
VinFast LUX A2.0 sedan and LUX SA2.0 SUV were introduced to the global automobile market in Paris on Tuesday, with the motto “Style - Safety - Innovation – Pioneer”.
VinFast said after developing the domestic market, it would set up plans to export cars to foreign countries by 2020. Meanwhile, VinFast is also researching and developing a range of new products, including electric vehicles, urban small cars, electric buses and electric motorcycles. The company expects to export these products in the coming years.
VinFast is in the process of finalizing its advanced 335ha auto manufacturing complex in northern city of Hải Phòng. This is one of the largest industrial projects ever undertaken in the country. The groundbreaking ceremony was held last September. This complex is equipped with world-class facilities to ensure the production of world-class products. — VNS
