VinFast – the global electric vehicle (EV) maker from Vietnam – has announced it is hosting the VinFast California Roadshow until March 6, aiming to promote its electric SUV models VF 8 and VF 9 in the US market.
Following the reveal of VinFast’s full lineup of EVs at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2022) last month, VinFast is bringing its new all-electric sport utility vehicles directly to Californians.
The VinFast California Roadshow will kick-off with a private event and VF 8 vehicle display on February 11 and 12 at Penthouse 56, this week’s headquarters for the Los Angeles Rams as part of their big game celebrations.
The tour will run concurrently in Los Angeles at the Westfield Century City from February 11 – 13, and will continue to three more cities in Northern and Southern California, then concluding on March 6 at the Ferry Building in San Francisco.
The tour will be held in the most populous areas in Californian cities, directly providing specifications and images of VinFast’s EV models to potential customers and the locals.
The roadshow provides potential customers a first-hand opportunity to experience the brand and learn more about its premium electric SUVs, said Van Anh Nguyen, VinFast US Chief Executive Officer.
California is VinFast’s home in the US, with operations in Los Angeles and San Francisco, he said, so the company wants to start its journey building relationships with local communities in its own “backyard”.
