The first delivery ceremonies will be held simultaneously on March 27, 2023, in the Northern – Central – Southern regions of Vietnam at different VinFast stores, including VinFast Ocean Park (Hanoi), VinFast Ngo Quyen (Da Nang), and VinFast Landmark 81 (Ho Chi Minh City). The VF 9 delivery will be continued at other VinFast stores and dealers’ showrooms or through a home-delivery service across Vietnam according to the order of the reservations in the following days.
Madam Le Thi Thu Thuy, Vice Chairwoman of Vingroup and CEO of VinFast Holdings, said: “Following VF e34 and VF 8, the VF 9 delivery, as planned and committed to customers, has affirmed VinFast’s capabilities in applying technologies and optimizing vehicle development and production process. I believe that, along with VinFast’s attractive initial ownership cost and outstanding after-sale services, the VF 9 will win the hearts of those who have put trust in VinFast through their reservations and waiting for more than a year.”
Following the Vietnamese market, VinFast expects to roll out the export plan of the first VF 9 batch to international markets in the upcoming time. In addition, VinFast is in preparation for its VF 5 Plus delivery in April 2023, according to its initial plan.
