Is this a product of Photoshop?
Vietnam really exports the first batch of electric vehicles (EVs)?
All doubts were clear when VinFast held an electric vehicle export ceremony in Hai Phong on Friday, November 25, 2022.
That day at MPC Port (Hai An District, Hai Phong City), Silver Queen – a 11,000-ton vehicle carrier with a capacity of up to 4,500 cars is moored. Next to it are 999 VinFast VF 8 cars waiting to board.
A historical moment: 999 Vietnamese EVs officially exported
The event marked a big turning point in the car industry in Vietnam when for the first time, technology cars owned and manufactured by Vietnam could approach the international market. VinFast has become the first Vietnamese automaker to export electric vehicles to the US market.
“Vietnam Is Competitive In The International Market”
Nguyen Viet Quang, Vice Chairman and General Director of Vingroup, spoke at the ceremony, affirming that this event is a historic milestone not only for the corperation but also for the country.
