At the New York International Auto Show, VinFast and Electrify America announced an agreement to provide owners of VinFast electric vehicles with two complimentary charging sessions along with access to Electrify America’s network in the VinFast mobile app. This cooperation further affirms VinFast’s determination to enter the U.S. market, the company says.
VinFast’s Plug & Charge enabled VF 8 and VF 9 models will allow owners to utilize the feature on Electrify America’s network of ultra-fast charging stations across the U.S. Plug & Charge allows drivers of capable vehicles to pay for a charging session by simply plugging in their EV once billing information is set up on the VinFast app.
Electrify America has 800 EV charging stations and about 3,500 individual chargers open or with construction completed.
On March 29, VinFast and the state of North Carolina signed a memorandum of understanding on the construction of the plant with an investment of up to $2 billion in Phase I at the selected mega-site in Chatham County, North Carolina.
