HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese carmaker VinFast has announced an exchange programme to swap old cars for new ones, with customers paying the difference.
The exchange programme started on Friday and is valid for all cars from various brands in Việt Nam which have been used for less than seven years.
The exchange is the first of its kind in the Vietnamese automotive market, giving consumers the opportunity to convert their used cars to other models manufactured by VinFast.
Customers must bring used cars to the Smart Solution supermarket, a used car trading company of Vingroup where the car will be priced and redeemed. All pricing and trading processes will be made public and transparent.
VinFast said it would offer customers VNĐ50 million (US$2,130), VNĐ30 million and VNĐ10 million in cash when buying VinFast cars, corresponding to the models Lux SA2.0, Lux A2.0 or Fadil.
In addition, customers will also benefit from a preferential financial policy, which includes loan interest exemption in the first two years when buying a car via installments at the bank. From the third year onward the customers will face a maximum interest rate of 10.5 per cent per year.
With a loan up to 70 per cent of the car's value and a maximum term of eight years, customers only need to pay VNĐ4 million per month for a Fadil car, or VNĐ8 million for a Lux.
The two models Lux A2.0 and Lux SA2.0 are included in the promotion programme this month, with prices starting from VNĐ896.1 million for Lux A2.0 models and from VNĐ1.32 billion for Lux SA2.0 if customers pay 100 per cent this month. With Fadil models, the one-time payment price is only VNĐ373.41 million. — VNS
