Vinfast is also developing other eco-friendly personal vehicles such as electric motorbikes and automobiles, and autos (sedan, SUV) that run on petrol meeting Euro 5 emission standards.

Vo Quang Hue, Deputy General Director of Vingroup in charge of Vinfast project, said the deals reflect Vinfast’s commitment to churning out safe, convenient and high-quality electric buses for a green future of the Vietnamese people, adding that it will be a pioneering solution to changing public transportation in the country.

Nearly one year since its establishment, Vinfast has completed a series of important agreements with international partners to materialize its vision.

Earlier, Vingroup also chose Siemens as a partner for the supply of technological solutions to building digital enterprises, build a system to monitor vehicles’ life cycle and operate Vinfast factory amidst the fourth industrial revolution.
