VinFast is planning to hinder U.S. electric automobile manufacturer strategy to 2025
March 13, 2023: On Friday, Vietnam’s automaker VinFast stated that it will push back its plan to start operating its electric vehicles factory in the U.S. until 2025, citing a procedural delay.
The unit of conglomerate Vingroup JSC flagged the plan to build a $4 billion EV factory in North Carolina’s Chatham County on 712 hectares of land in March of the previous year, with commissioning aiming for July 2024.
“We need over to complete administrative procedures,” VinFast said in a report on the delay, which did not discuss when 2025 the plant was anticipated to begin procedures.
Once the facility comes together VinFast EVs, customers may be entitled to incentives regarding terms of the Inflation Reduction Act signed by U.S. President Joe Biden.
VinFast was awarded an Air Permit from local authorities last month to start construction. It still needs an allowance from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to minimise water quality and wetlands damage.
The plant, with phase one, which includes capital expenditures for the construction of $1.4 billion, is anticipated to create over 7,000 jobs and churn out 150,000 vehicles in a year, according to the firm’s latest prospectus on Thursday.
In the previous year, VinFast filed for an initial public which offers in the U.S. to list on the Nasdaq to finance its plant construction.
VinFast started its first sales outside Vietnam the previous week, delivering its first 45 cars in California on the first day.
Its revenue in 2022 was 14.9 trillion dongs ($631 million), down about 6.9% against 2021. Its most delinquent prospectus showed that net losses rose 55% to 49.8 trillion from 32.2 trillion dongs.
