According to information from VinFast, after 48 hours of opening for sale, this car company has received a total of 24,308 orders for two electric car models VF 8 and VF 9 globally. Among them, 15,237 applications are for VF 8 and 9,071 applications are for VF 9. Thus, after 2 days, VinFast has pocketed about 243 billion VND in customer deposits.
VinFast said the deposit is refundable. In the event that no customer gets their deposit back and all receive the car, VinFast will earn VND 26,500 billion from the above orders, including about VND 14,600 billion from VF8 and VND 11,900 billion from VF9.
This is the price based on the VF8 Eco and VF9 Eco versions in the Vietnamese market. If there are customers who order VF8 Plus or VF9 Plus, the amount that VinFast collects will be even higher.
However, the above temporarily calculated amount does not include the voucher that VinFast gives to customers. In 3 months, VinFast offers a voucher of VND 150 million for customers who deposit to buy VF8 or a voucher of VND 250 million for customers who deposit to buy VF9.
If minus the voucher money, VinFast will get about 22,000 billion VND, approximately 1 billion USD.
