Automaker VinFast has stopped accepting new orders for gasoline-powered cars four months earlier than announced as it seeks to become a major global player in electronic vehicles.

It has received a huge number of orders for its Lux SUV and sedan and Fadil hatchback, and plans to keep the production line going until it fulfills them, it said in a statement Friday.

It said it would continue to service them for another 10 years to ensure the cars can be maintained through their life cycle.

The country’s first indigenous automaker announced in January it would completely transition to electric vehicles this year and is eyeing the U.S. and Europe as its first global markets.

It has so far received 73,000 orders for electric vehicles.

It started delivering them at the end of last year and had sold over 2,200 VF e34 cars by the end of June.

VinFast plans to have 150,000 charging stations around the country by this year.
