Vietnamese Billionaire Pham Nhat Vuong-Backed VinFast Delays First US Car Deliveries to Jan.
VinFast, Vietnam’s electric carmaker backed by the country’s wealthiest man, Pham Nhat Vuong has announced that it will be delaying its December vehicle deliveries to its first US customers until this month due to holidays in America.
The company said in a statement. “We are currently signing sales contracts with our customers and will hand over vehicles in January according to their needs,” the company said.
In a statement, the company explained that it is also working on procedures with banks to allow its customers to access loans. “We are currently signing sales contracts with our customers and will hand over vehicles in January according to their needs,” the company said. This delay follows the company’s announcement in late November that it would need to postpone its EV rollouts in Europe and Canada until early 2023 due to the global shortage of semiconductors.
It is likely that VinFast, Vietnam’s electric carmaker, delayed its December vehicle deliveries to its first US customers until this month due to the holiday season in America being typically a busy time for consumers, who may have been preoccupied with other matters and not able to receive or take possession of their vehicles. Many businesses experience slower or disrupted operations during the holiday period, and it is possible that VinFast did not want to risk any delays or issues with its deliveries during this time.
By delaying the deliveries until after the holidays, VinFast may have been able to ensure a smoother process for both the company and its customers. It is also possible that the company wanted to allow its US customers to fully enjoy the holiday season before receiving their vehicles.
