Four years after its global debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, VinFast has announced its return to France as Vietnam’s first and only global smart EV maker, marking a significant leap on the journey toward sustainable mobility. For the first time, VinFast will officially introduce a premium electric vehicle line-up from segment B to E to the French market.

VinFast will bring to the 2022 Paris Motor Show (PMS) four models: VF 6, VF 7, VF 8 and VF 9. This is the first time VinFast officially introduces these electric vehicle models to the French market. In particular, the VF 6 and VF 7, respectively, belong to the B-segment and C-segment, and are two models jointly designed by VinFast and Torino Design. The Pininfarina-designed VF 8 and VF 9 models are VinFast's first two electric SUV models to launch in the global market. VinFast's four all-electric models come with a 10-year warranty, one of the leading warranty policies on the market.

In addition to electric passenger vehicles, in just four years, VinFast has developed a comprehensive ecosystem of electrified mobility covering sustainable energy solutions, electric buses, electric scooters, and cars. The current electric vehicle line-up has five models, including VF 5, VF 6, VF 7, VF 8 and VF 9 covering segments A to E.

The first 100 VF 8s were recently delivered to VinFirst customers in Viet Nam. Approximately 5,000 VF 8s are expected to be handed to customers in international markets later this year.

VinFast’s global debut at the Paris Motor Show 2018 placed Viet Nam on the world map of the automotive industry. At the event, VinFast introduced two gasoline-powered car models, Lux A and Lux SA 2.0, which attracted the attention of the world's audience and press. VinFast was awarded "A Star is Born" by AUTOBEST. — VNS
