VinFast, the Vietnamese emerging global electric vehicle (EV) company, plans to open more than 50 VinFast stores across Germany, France, and the Netherlands.
The reveal came at the European premiere of its VF 8 and VF 9 smart electric vehicles at the International Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition, which is taking place until June 15 in Oslo, Norway.

The Vietnamese automaker will open at least 25 VinFast stores in Germany, 20 in France, and five in the Netherlands. The first confirmed German locations include Frankfurt, Berlin, Cologne, Oberhausen, and Hamburg.
In France, locations include Paris, Marseille, Nantes, Rennes, Nice, Montpellier, Aix en Provence and Metz. Amsterdam is expected to be where the first VinFast store opens in the Netherlands.
Following a robust evaluation process that considered factors such as existing infrastructure, locality and potential EV community, these locations have been selected to optimize customer convenience. Stores will vary in size and offer sales-only or a comprehensive sales and servicing capability.
Le Thi Thu Thuy, Vingroup Vice Chairwoman and VinFast Global CEO, said the announcement of VinFast stores in French, German and Dutch markets affirms the company’s seriousness and commitment to Europe.
“VinFast is not just here to sell cars. We are here to inspire change and accelerate the transition to electric vehicles for the benefit of the environment. We are here to support every customer on their journey with VinFast, from reservation to their experiences throughout the vehicle life,” she underlined.
VinFast recently announced the pricing details of the VF 8 and VF 9 along with their battery subscription plans for Dutch, German and French markets, which provide consumers with a wide range of flexibility. Pioneering customers who purchase VF 8 and VF 9 in 2022 and 2023 will benefit from a rewarding subscription rate policy that is permanently affixed to the vehicle for its lifetime.
Applied from January 5 to May 30, the VinFirst program - VinFast’s exclusive package for early pioneering customers - received approximately 73,000 reservations globally.
