VinFast, Vietnam’s first indigenous car manufacturer, plans to test its first vehicle for safety parameters in Europe on March 6.
According to company executives, the vehicle will be tested for international standards to ensure its highest safety.
This announcement came after VinFast’s Hai Phong factory successfully manufactured the first body shell of the Lux A2.0, a sedan, Wednesday.
Shaun William Calvert, deputy general director in charge of production, said the first body shell meets the highest quality requirements.
VinFast, the car manufacturing unit of Vietnam’s largest private conglomerate Vingroup, showed off its first two car models, a sedan and an SUV, at the Paris Motor Show in France last October just a year after the company’s incorporation, grabbing the attention of the local and international media.
VinFast’s first cars are expected to hit the road in August 2019.
