Vietnamese EV maker VinFast to supply 2,500 units to US car subscription service Autonomy
First-time EV owner shocked after it took 15 hours to drive 178 miles
‘On the Trail: Electrical Vehicle Anxiety’ author Alan O’Hashi argues electric vehicles lack adequate infrastructure for longer distance car rides.
Vietnam's electric vehicle maker VinFast said on Thursday it has struck a deal with U.S. car subscription service Autonomy to supply more than 2,500 units, its largest corporate order to date, as part of a plan to expand further in the market.
VinFast, which ceased production of gasoline-powered cars in August, is gearing up to get a bite of the U.S. market, where it hopes to compete with legacy automakers and deliver its first batch of 5,000 all-electric sport utility vehicles this December.
"VinFast will begin delivering vehicles to Autonomy over the next 12 months," the companies said in a joint statement, noting Autonomy had initially ordered just 400 units in August.
