Jakarta, Indonesia, February 15, 2024 — VinFast Auto today debuts the company’s first range of right-hand drive electric vehicles at the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) 2024.

The official launch in the Indonesian market, marked by this event, signifies the next step in VinFast’s global expansion and underscores its dedication to fostering sustainable transportation locally and globally.

The VF 7 model with right-hand drive is displayed at the IIMS 2024 Exhibition.

At IIMS 2024, VinFast is displaying the VF 5, VF e34, VF 6, VF 7, VF 8, and VF 9 models, ranging from A-SUV to E-SUV segments. With the main message of VinFast’s exhibition being “Living Unbound,” the company aims to offer more sustainable transportation offerings and inspire Indonesian consumers to explore the limitless potential of a modern and sustainable transportation future.

Indonesia is the first country where VinFast will introduce right-hand drive electric vehicles, illustrating the company’s advanced manufacturing capabilities and determination to develop electric vehicles and bring green transportation to all markets. VF 5, VF e34, VF 6, and VF 7, belonging to segments A to C, are slated to be the first electric vehicle models to launch in Indonesia.

VinFast’s vehicles have a modern, youthful design, are integrated with advanced technology to meet the diverse needs of many consumers, and offered with flexible sales and outstanding after-sales policies, making sustainable transportation more accessible to everyone.

To ensure convenient charging, VinFast will partner with local suppliers to establish a nationwide charging network. This ambitious plan will enable seamless electric mobility for Indonesian customers, significantly boosting sustainable transportation adoption in the market.

Driven by a long-term vision for sustainable transportation, VinFast, as previously announced, will build a local electric vehicle manufacturing plant in Indonesia with a projected capacity of 50,000 cars per year. VinFast’s planned factory is expected to create thousands of jobs and contribute to the development of a robust domestic electric vehicle industry. When operational, the plant will also represent a key link in VinFast’s global electric vehicle supply chain.
