This factory is the most important part of the VinFast automobile and e-scooter production complex, whose construction began two years ago. The plant is designed to manufacture 250,000 cars each year in the first phase, increasing to 500,000 in the second phase. Plant workshops are highly automated. It is currently the only factory in Vietnam able to produce the main parts of a car like the chassis and engine.

VinFast set a record in the global auto industry by building this factory in just 21 months.

During the factory’s construction, VinFast also completed and debuted one e-scooter and three automobile models. The Fadil was delivered Monday. The Lux A2.0 and Lux SA2.0 will be available to customers in late July. 12 other car and e-scooter models are being designed and will debut later this year or in 2020.

Earlier, VinFast built an e-scooter factory and developed three car models within 12 months. The company received 10,000 orders one year prior to the first delivery.
