Two Pininfarina-designed electric vehicles – the VF e35 and VF e36 – for Vietnamese car maker Vinfast are to debut at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The two electric SUVs are the centre piece of VinFast's ‘Future of Mobility’ theme at this year's LA Auto Show. VinFast's design team and Pininfarina worked together to deliver a modern design language that “combines graceful curves and strong, bold trims while harmonizing with sharp, crisp lines in an impressive, eye-catching style.” They, according to Vinfast, “create the ‘Dynamic Balance’ design, giving power and forward motion to the design. In addition, the interiors are created with an eye for convenience, luxury, and seamless driving experiences.”
VinFast also aims to introduce smart technologies that can inspire consumers to switch to EVs. Visitors will get a glimpse of some of these technologies, including Smart Security, VinFast's Traffic and Driver Monitoring System developed by VinAI, and Routix, an AI-powered advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), and autonomous driving verification services developed by Vantix. This smart technology can actively detect errors in the shortest time with incredible accuracy, says Vinfast
According to Michael Lohscheller, Global CEO of VinFast, "VinFast believes in 'The Future of Mobility,' a future where smart vehicles are highly personalized 'technologies for life' that combine eco-friendliness with maximum safety and outstanding driver experiences."
Lisa Kaz, President and CEO of the LA Auto Show, commented: "Electrification is the biggest transformation the auto show industry has experienced in the past 100 years. The LA Auto Show is excited to welcome EV automakers to our show, including VinFast, where our visitors will be able to discover Vietnam's first-ever automaker and its all-new EVs.”
The VinFast EV global premiere takes place on November 17, 2021, at 3:30 pm (PST).
