Vietnam's VinFast delays US electric car plant amid market slowdown
Quick Glance: VinFast Delays US Electric Car Plant Amid Market Uncertainties
  • Vietnamese electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer VinFast is postponing the opening of its planned $4 billion factory in North Carolina to the year 2028 and revising down its delivery projection for this year by 20,000 units due to uncertainties in the global EV market.

  • The sales figures of the Vietnamese EV manufacturer increased by 24% in the second quarter, with approximately 12,000 vehicles sold compared to the preceding three-month period.

  • VinFast still anticipates strong revenue growth in the latter half of the year, fueled by a diverse product range and expansion into key regions, including new markets in Asia and existing markets.

  • Despite recording a net loss of $618 million in the first quarter, the company foresees an upturn in the second quarter and maintains its focus on core growth strategies and operational objectives.
