VinFast inks cooperation deals with 15 Thai agents at BIMS 2024

The signing ceremony took place within the framework of the ongoing Bangkok International Motor Show (BIMS) 2024 which is running from March 27 to April 7.

The signing marks an important milestone in expanding VinFast’s distribution network and enhancing its presence, thereby affirming the position and attractiveness of the Vietnamese EV brand in the region's leading auto market.

Under the letters of content, VinFast and its agents will actively work towards exploiting 22 stores, with a specific focus on major roads in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region.

Along with Bangkok and five neighbouring provinces in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region, VinFast's dealer network will also expand to other major cities such as Chiang Mai, Khon Kaen, Ubon Ratchathani, Ayutthaya, and Chonburi.

Vu Dang Yen Hang, general director of VinFast Thailand, emphasised that the partnership with reputable and experienced dealers in Thailand is anticipated to strengthen the firm’s presence in the region, whilst also serving as a solid foundation for the firm’s future development in the Thai market.

“We also aim to expand the EV distribution network to major cities in Thailand, in order to keep pace with the strong green transportation revolution in the country and globally,” she noted.

Dealers in Thailand plan to sell VinFast EV models such as the VF e34, VF 5, VF 6, and VF 7 in the first phase, immediately after these models debut in the market. Furthermore, they will also sell VinFast electric motorbike products.

According to the schedule, VinFast will expand its operations to at least 50 countries worldwide this year. In addition to key markets like the United States, Canada, and Europe, the automaker is seeking to penetrate deep into neighbouring countries in Asia such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, as well as the Middle East and Africa.

VinFast has brought numerous models to BIMS 2024, including the mini-SUV VF 3; the VF 5, VF e34, VF 6, VF 7, VF 8, and VF 9; as well as the A-SUV to E-SUV segments.

Most notably, the VF Wild, an electric pickup truck concept that garnered global attention upon its debut at CES 2024, is also on display at the event.
