The German development service EDAG has received an order from the VinFast company for the complete development of an electric vehicle tailored for the Vietnamese market.
The startup owned by the Vietnamese VinGroup is planning to enter the Vietnamese vehicle market with two conventional vehicles and one fully electric city vehicle, before expanding abroad. The EDAG EV is currently in the primary design stage, and a preliminary design sketch has been released.
“We are proud that VinFast has chosen to appoint us as the overall engineering part-ner to work on their trendsetting electric vehicle project,” stated Cosimo De Carlo, CEO of the EDAG Group. EDAG’s website also states that their vehicle production and eMobility experience were among the reasons they were chosen as a partner.
VinFast is currently also building their first factory in the coastal city Haiphong in northern Vietnam. They plan to present the first two vehicles at the coming Paris Motor Show in Fall.
