VINFAST DELIVERS THE FIRST LOT OF ELECTRIC VEHICLES TO CUSTOMERS IN VIETNAM

0


The VF e34 is a C / midsize segment electric SUV featuring a modern design, impressive acceleration, intuitive operation, and many built-in smart features that are researched and developed exclusively for the Vietnamese market.

VF e34 has many unique features including its virtual assistant developed by VinBigData, a member company of the Vingroup technology ecosystem. Thanks to the multi-regional recognition of Vietnamese accents, users can directly interact with the vehicle and control many features in a convenient and easy way. Customers can also book many services provided by other Vingroup members, such as medical services at Vinmec, entertainment services and flights on the Vinpearl app. Additionally, customers can watch movies through FPT Play or purchase through Shopee’s own app.

To help customers experience smart features on VF e34, VinFast has partnered with MobiFone Telecommunication Corporation to provide customers with optimal eSIM data packages. As a result, every e34 VF delivered will be preinstalled with eSIM, and customers will pay a fee to use eSIM data directly on MobiFone.

With VF e34, VinFast offers an optional advanced feature set worth 60 million VND (about $ 2,600), including driving assistance functions in terms of safety, navigation system, geo-limit and time setting. This optional feature set will be offered by VinFast as a tribute to more than 25,000 pioneering customers who ordered VF e34 smart electric cars before the sale opened. Customers who buy a car later will have to pay a fee to use these features.

Upon delivery of the first batch of electric vehicles, VinFast also officially announced its new battery rental package for customers of Vietnam. To support customers, VinFast has reduced the minimum package from a distance of 1,400 km / month to 500 km / month. Concretely, the monthly subscription price is 657,500 VND/ month (approximately $ 30) for a maximum distance of 500 km / month. In the event of a trip exceeding 500 km / month, customers will pay an additional battery rental charge for VinFast at a unit price of 1,315 VND / km (approximately $ 0.05). In addition, when the battery charge capacity drops below 70%, VinFast will replace the new battery completely free of charge for customers.

VinFast is committed to renting batteries for the entire life cycle of the product and will adjust its rental price each year. Every year on 1st December, VinFast will adjust the battery rents and it will be based only on the increase / decrease in electricity / gasoline prices.

The 25,000 pioneer customers will receive free battery rent for the first 12 months.

Charging costs for cars at VinFast public charging stations are 2,834 VND/ kWh (excluding VAT) (approx. $ 0.12), equivalent to the level 5 electricity price announced by the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade on March 20, 2019. If the battery is fully charged but the car is still in the charging position, customers will need to pay an additional fee of 1,000 VND per minute (approximately $ 0.04) from the 31st minute. This cost is paid with the monthly battery subscription fee.

Customers who purchase VF e34 cars also receive a portable 2.2 kW charger to actively charge the battery with the home power grid. VinFast also offers a 7.4 kW wall charger at a price of 9,400,000 VND (about $ 411) for customers who want to install more at home.

It is expected that in January 2022, VinFast will continue to deliver thousands of additional VF e34 vehicles to customers who have deposited in advance. In order to continue the era of smart electric cars which officially opened in Vietnam, VinFast will also present a full range of electric vehicles, including 5 models in the ABCDE segments at the Consumer Electric Show (CES) 2022 of January 5 to January 8, in Las Vegas, Nevada, UNITED STATES.

VinFast – “Creating a sustainable future for all”
Along with the official distribution of its first EV model, on December 25, 2021, VinFast also officially announced the launch of its new community project, “Create a sustainable future for all” with the goal of planting a million new trees. For each VinFast EV sold in Vietnam, VinFast will bring a tree to wooded watershed restoration projects.

360 degree panoramic view monitoring (SVM)
SVM technology developed by VinAI – a Vingroup technology ecosystem company – and applied to VF e34 electric cars helps drivers monitor the overall outdoor environment and change the view with the on-screen dashboard. The system combines fish-eye cameras and AI technology capable of identifying participants in traffic. With high-quality 3D imaging capabilities, SVM enables the driver to accurately observe and recognize blind spot obstacles that cannot be seen through the rearview mirror.
