Los Angeles, November 17, 2021 - At the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show, VinFast officially launched its global electric vehicle brand and unveiled two electric SUV models, the VF e35 and VF e36, with several advanced technologies. This event represents an important milestone in the global expansion plan of “driving the movement of the global smart electric vehicle (EV) revolution” and realizing the future of mobility for a green planet and sustainable development.
By debuting a global electric vehicle brand at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show (LA Auto Show), VinFast has established Southeast Asia as a beacon on the global automotive map.
VinFast delivers a comprehensive and modern electric vehicle ecosystem built on a platform of smart services and personalized experiences for customers. In spreading the future of mobility message, VinFast hopes to inspire members of the international community to act together to create a green, clean and sustainable environment for future generations.
Michael Lohscheller, CEO of VinFast Global, said: "We are deeply motivated to inspire our customers to be bold and join the revolution to EVs to accelerate solutions that will address this crisis. VinFast believes that the future of mobility will be one of smart electric cars that are highly personalized and integrated with technologies that benefit life and our environment. These vehicles will do so while meeting safety standards and delivering superior and comfortable driving experiences."
At the event, VinFast also debuted the VF e35 and VF e36, two electric SUV models in the respective D & E market segments. Shown for the first time to the public, the VF e35 impressed with a balance of delicate yet sharp, crisp lines that contribute power and forward motion to the design. This beautiful harmony creates modern proportions and a surfacing language called "Dynamic Balance."
Meanwhile, the VF e36 captured attention with its strong and dynamic appearance. Design details on the VF e36 enable outstanding aerodynamics and an extended range for the electric vehicle, including "Air Curtains" in the hood and front end to redirect air from high drag areas. In addition, door handles, glass and trim are all flushes to the body. A sloping roofline and tapering side glass are also very aerodynamic.
These two EVs integrate ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems), featuring Lane Assist, Collision Warning, Driver Monitoring, Fully Automated Parking, Summon Vehicle and more. Moreover, VF e35 and VF e36 are equipped with Smart Infotainment, including in-car control features such as Voice Assistant, Virtual Assistant, and E-Commerce Services, among others.
The VF e35 and VF e36 stem from VinFast’s strategic investments in its internal R&D system, global collaborations with technology companies and innovative start-ups and the company’s prestigious partners in the automotive industry over the years.
VinFast’s electric SUV models will be available for pre-order in the first half of 2022, deliveries planned to begin in the fourth quarter of the same year.
VinAI, Vantix and VinBigData, the members of the Vingroup technological ecosystem, joined VinFast at the 2021 LA Auto Show. These companies are among leaders in Vietnam’s artificial intelligence research, solutions and services sector. Their research and development contributions in numerous smart features, ADAS and virtual assistant, have provided VinFast with significant competitive advantages.
The official introduction of the VinFast EV brand, as well as the launch of two electric vehicle models at the 2021 LA Auto show, is the first step in VinFast’s strategy to conquer the international market, with its following plans to extend to Canada and Europe in the coming months.
