Accordingly, the car manufacturer, an affiliate of leading private economic comglomerate VinGoup, will open at least 25 VinFast Stores in Germany, 20 in France, and five in the Netherlands.

This announcement was made during the launch of a programme aimed at introducing two smart electric vehicle (EV) models, the VF 8 and VF 9, in the European market as part of the International Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition (EVS35) which is underway in Oslo (Norway) from June 11 to June 15.

VinFast said the initial stores in Germany will be located in major cities such as Frankfurt, Berlin, Cologne, Oberhausen, and Hamburg while those in France will be in cities such as Paris, Marseille, Nantes, Rennes, Nice, Montpellier, Aix-en province, and Metz.

In the Netherlands, the first VinFast store is expected to make its debut in the city of Amsterdam.

Le Thi Thu Thuy, vice chairwoman of Vingroup and global CEO of VinFast, said the announcement of the impending opening of VinFast Stores in Europe serves to affirm the enterprise’s full commitment to inspire the transition to EVs in order to secure a green future for everyone.

Thuy emphasised that the company will continue to support customers in making reservations and having the chance to experience the innovative smart features of EVs.

Recently, VinFast also announced details of its battery subscription pricing packages in Germany, France, and the Netherlands with the aim of providing customers with the widest range of options possible.

Most notably, all consumers who purchase the VF 8 or VF 9 in 2022 and 2023 will be able to enjoy a preferential policy of renting batteries for the entire product life cycle. Back in May the company also co-operated alongside the FCA Bank Group in a bid to provide customers with flexible financial support packages.

VinFast pointed out that its privilege scheme had been officially been in use from January and concluded on May 30, receiving roughly 73,000 pre-orders for its EVs from global customers.

As part of efforts to further encourage customers to join the EV transition, VinFast also launched a preferential policy for European customers. Accordingly, customers who order either the VF 8 or VF 9 models from June 1 to September 30 will be able to use the VinFast Smart Driving package free of charge one year.

Furthermore, customers will also get free consultation on how best to use electric vehicles and will be provided with a home delivery service./.
