Vietnam's first major automaker receives regional vote of confidence on three flagship car models from ASEAN safety rating organisation.

VinFast, the automotive unit of Vietnam’s largest business conglomerate, Vingroup, is changing the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) automotive status quo.

The company recently achieved prestigious safety certifications for three of its flagship car models from the New Car Assessment Program for South East Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP), the region's automobile safety rating organization. ASEAN NCAP granted the highest safety certification of five stars to two of VinFast's luxury SUVs, the Lux SA2.0 and the Lux A2.0, while its versatile city car, the Fadil, was granted a four star rating.

The safety certifications are testament to the success of VinFast's ambitions to provide customers in ASEAN with high-quality and affordable vehicles designed and made in Vietnam. The company is projecting production of 500,000 units per year by 2025.
