Recently, at CES 2021, in parallel with the launch of electric vehicles from VF5 to VF9, VinFast announced that it would stop producing petrol cars from the end of 2022 to focus all its efforts on developing electric vehicles.
“VinFast is the pioneer car company in the world to stop producing gasoline cars and completely switch to electric motors”Ms. Le Thi Thu Thuy, General Director of VinFast Global, assessed this as a historic turning point not only for VinFast, but also for the entire auto industry.
After this information, many owners of VinFast petrol cars such as Fadil, Lux A and Lux SA have expressed concern about the fate of their cars, especially about the aftermarket. “VinFast stops producing gasoline cars, whether the vehicle needs technical support will be accepted or have spare parts for replacement.” This is a common question asked by many customers.
In order to help customers have peace of mind in the upcoming journeys, VinFast has recently officially announced that it will increase the warranty period of all gasoline cars to 10 years.
Thereby, all VinFast petrol cars including Fadil, Lux A2.0, Lux SA2.0 and President will apply a warranty policy of 10 years or 200,000 km (whichever comes first). More importantly, this policy applies not only to new cars, but also to existing cars. The warranty period will be automatically updated on the system and the car owner does not have to do anything else.
VinFast’s electric vehicles, including the VF e34 now rolling and future product lines such as the VF8 or VF9, will also be warranted for 10 years.
VinFast’s 10-year warranty period is the longest in the Vietnamese car market today, when other brands usually only warrant their cars for a period of 3-5 years.
Regarding the components issue, in a recent interview, Mr. Hoang Chi Trung – General Director of VinFast Trading Vietnam, affirmed that VinFast had carefully planned wages and prepared 1.5 times more components than usual. market rate.
“Certainly, all commitments to customers will be fully fulfilled by VinFast. With each car sold, we are committed to serving the entire product life cycle. Anyone who has been, is and will be a customer of the company. VinFast can rest assured because we have carefully planned the amount of components, spare parts and equipment, ensuring customer service for all VinFast petrol cars until the end of their life cycle.”, Mr. Trung said.
