VinFast prepares to set up shop in Europe

The Vietnamese electric car manufacturer VinFast has announced the opening of more than 50 stores in Germany, France and the Netherlands. Specifically, more than 25 VinFast stores are to be built in Germany, 20 in France and five in the Netherlands.

Among the first confirmed locations in Germany are Frankfurt, Berlin, Cologne, Oberhausen and Hamburg, according to VinFast. In France, points of sale are planned in Paris, Marseille, Nantes, Rennes, Nice, Montpellier, Aix en Provence and Metz, among others. In the Netherlands, the first VinFast store is to open in Amsterdam.

In the process, the company says that not only the cities but also the exact locations of the showrooms have already been decided. “Following a robust evaluation process that took into account factors such as existing infrastructure, location and potential EV community, locations were selected to optimise customer convenience,” the statement said. The shops vary in size and offer sales-only or comprehensive sales and service options.

“Announcement of VinFast Stores in French, German and Dutch markets affirms VinFast’s seriousness and commitment to Europe,” said Le Thi Thu Thuy, vice-chairman of Vingroup and CEO of VinFast. “VinFast is not just here to sell cars. We are here to inspire change and accelerate the transition to electric vehicles for the benefit of the environment.”

In mid-May, the carmaker had released more technical details, retail prices and monthly battery rental rates for its first two models, the VF 8 and VF 9. In January at CES, VinFast had shown three more electric cars to be launched in the coming years.
