In addition, VinFast reported that it handed 2,660 electric cars over to customers in June. So, in the first half of this year, VinFast delivered 11,143 units. 

According to experts, as the Government approved the reduction of 50% of the registration fee for new cars manufactured and assembled in Vietnam from July 1 (corresponding to a reduction of 5% - 6% of the price with fees/taxes being included), it is forecast that the Vietnamese auto market will prosper in the coming months./.
