VinFast is recalling 5,912 VF 5 Plus electric vehicles manufactured last year to fix the issue of headlights turning off when the left turn signal is switched on.

The company said the headlights in some VF 5 Plus cars, the smallest in its EV lineup, could turn off when the car is traveling at 50-55 kilometers per hour and the headlights are in auto mode.

This is due to a hardware issue in the circuit board the company received from its supplier, it said.

The supplier would replace the necessary parts for free, and the task will take around 40 minutes, it added.

There have been no incidents due to the issue so far, but the company is recalling all vehicles produced between March and December last year.
