Vinfast will be a pioneer in the international automotive industry to cease production of gasoline vehicles and convert completely to electric models in the end of 2022.
In the event “VinFast Global EV Day” taking place at the Consumer Electronics Show CES 2022 (USA) on January 6th, Ms. Le Thi Thu Thuy – VinFast Global General Director and Vice President of Vingroup has officially announced that VinFast will stop producing gasoline cars by the end of this year and completely switch to fully electric cars. This bold move shows VinFast’s determination for a green future when it becomes a worldwide pioneer in making a historic transformation.
This is also the main reason that the VinFast electric car series, which was originally named VF e32, VF e33, VF e34P, VF e35 and VF e36, suddenly changed its name to VF5, VF6, VF7, VF8 and VF9. Specifically, the prefix “e” previously meant “electric” to separate the product line of electric vehicles from gasoline cars. However, with the conversion, VinFast does not need to establish long names for its product lines. Shortening the names will also make these models easier to be highlighted.
That leaves the remaining three gasoline models: VinFast Fadil, Lux A2.0 and Lux SA2.0. All three were first launched in Vietnam in 2018 and so far, VinFast Fadil is the most popular product with leading sales in the whole market. The fact that the Vietnamese brand will stop producing gasoline cars means that VinFast Fadil, Lux A2.0 and Lux SA2.0 will certainly not have an upgrade in the middle of the life cycle, let alone the 2nd generation.
This information is likely to affect the consumption of VinFast Fadil, Lux A2.0, and Lux SA2.0 in the near future, as spare parts has always been a concern for users. Of course, even if Vinfast decides to assemble pure electric vehicles, the replacement parts for the previous series of petrol cars will still have to be available.
In addition, it is likely that VinFast will launch a recall program to encourage users to switch to electric vehicles, just like the first stage of launching these 3 models. Recalling old models to exchange for new ones is also one of the tactics to attract customers of Vietnamese automakers.
