Vietnamese carmaker VinFast has launched its fifth electric car, the VF 6 crossover, in the small car segment, with base prices starting at VND675 million ($27,800).
The Plus version, which offers a range of 399 kilometers compared to the base’s 381 kilometers, costs VND765 million.
The battery costs 90 million VND for each version.
Any customer who does not purchase the battery can rent it for VND1.8 million per month, with a maximum monthly distance of 1,500 kilometers.
Sales will begin on October 20 and deliveries are planned for the end of this year.
The VF 6 is in the same price range as the Hyundai Creta (from VND 640 million) and Kia Seltos (from VND 599 million).
Segment B (the smallest car category in the European ranking) is very competitive in Vietnam thanks to offerings from Japanese, South Korean, German and Chinese brands all seeking a larger share.
