VinFast launched two electric cars for the first time at Los Angeles Auto Show 2021, a milestone in its vision to become a global automaker.

"VinFast believes the future of mobility will be one of smart electric cars that are highly personalized and integrated with technologies that benefit life and our environment," said Michael Lohscheller, CEO of VinFast Global.

Its two electric SUV models, the VF e35 and VF e36, have advanced driver-assistance systems, lane assist, collision warning, driver monitoring, fully automated parking and vehicle summoning among other features.

Both models will be available for pre-order in the first half of 2022, with deliveries planned for the fourth quarter of the same year.

This is the first step in VinFast’s strategy to conquer the international market, after expanding to Canada and Europe in the coming months.

VinFast, a unit of Vietnam’s conglomerate Vingroup, on Wednesday announced its U.S. headquarters will be located in Los Angeles, California, staffed by 400 employees.

The company eyes a listing on the U.S. stock market in the next couple of years.
