This is both an opportunity but also a challenge for automobile manufacturers and importers on how to retain customers and meet increasingly strict demands. He assessed that the Vietnamese auto market is being heated up by the end of 2022 when companies plan to launch many new products.

Vietnam’s automobile market is becoming more and more exciting and fast-paced with the general trend of the world, the most obvious being the green car trend. Many car manufacturers have begun to bring in electric and hybrid models to serve domestic demand. As of August 2022, the whole country has about 3,000 electric cars manufactured, assembled, imported, more than 20 times higher than the number of electric cars in 2019. Currently, Vietnam has nearly 1.8 million mopeds – electric motorbikes are in operation.
According to the assessment, Vietnam has certain advantages when converting cars using internal combustion engines to electric vehicles, especially the Government has policies to support the production and assembly of electric vehicles. However, in order to switch from cars using internal combustion engines to electric vehicles according to the Government’s roadmap, many solutions related to policies, infrastructure, and markets are needed.
The seminar “Introducing green technology solutions to reduce emissions and protect the environment” will be held within the framework of the Vietnam Motor Show 2022, demonstrating the catching up of the trends of car manufacturers in the context of the strong trend of electrification of the automotive industry.
