Worried about the VinFast project?
Mr. Pham Nhat Vuong: This problem is probably the whole world has an anxious mindset. Electric cars are not an easy thing but something for Vietnam to change its stature. Why do we confidently sell cars in the world?
VinFast’s target is the conversion from petrol cars to electric cars. If I told you the numbers we plan to sell in foreign markets, you might be even more worried. For example in the US, in 2026 we plan to sell hundreds of thousands of cars.
If not for the lack of chips, we also plan to sell 56,000 cars here, but now we have to adjust it down to 15,000 cars.
We compete with gas cars, not with electric cars. The battery is transferred from the buyer’s ownership to this VinFast owns and leases.
We implement the concept of battery rental, charging the battery rental plus the charge for charging exactly the same as the cost customers pay for gasoline. Wherever the car goes, the money will go there
So what is the advantage of this concept?
First, electric cars are cheaper. Operating costs are cheaper, repair and maintenance costs are up to 35% compared to gasoline cars.
Second, the feature is much smarter. Therefore, it is very possible to compete with gasoline cars.
However, the disadvantage of electric cars is that the running distance is not too long. We fix it with super fast charging technology, in 20 minutes charge from 70-80% of the battery, run about 400 km more.
All costs from batteries to maintenance are for VinSmart to be responsible. VinSmart’s business model has been calculated relatively well.
If competing directly with gasoline cars, the story of quantity is extremely simple. In the US, the total number of electric vehicles in the total number of cars is only 2%. A year, the US sells from 16-18 million cars, if we only need to capture 1% of the market share, we have 160-180,000 cars.
Our vehicles apply the highest standards (5 star NCAP). Our intelligent self-driving is world-leading, all Tesla has we have.
Soon we will launch Level 3 self-driving feature, the highest feature.
The lack of chips is a big global problem. We will have to compete with that and reduce the business plan.
About industrial real estate?
Mr. Pham Nhat Vuong: We have plans to deploy in many places, we are currently doing procedures, so we cannot say when we will deploy what. Currently, there are many approved industrial park projects, this is similar to the real estate market, many projects are approved but still short of goods.
We compete by making the product to the end result.
Mr. Pham Nhat Vuong: Vinbiocare aims to develop biotechnology products, not just vaccines. This company will produce functional foods, medicines… step by step cautiously and surely.
Now the country is in need, we make the vaccine. But that project is not-for-profit, all costs we will try to collect, necessary will finance, even accept the initial risk of testing vaccines with projects that are not necessarily successful, accompanying the project. Because simply, if we wait until it is successful, we may not be able to buy a vaccine, let alone transfer technology.
Is there a plan to invest in Vung Tau, the location in the South is similar to Quang Ninh, Hai Phong in the North?
Mr. Pham Nhat Vuong: We don’t have a plan in Vung Tau because we are implementing a very large project in Can Gio. In terms of location, Can Gio is only two minutes away from Vung Tau. In the immediate future, we have completed this project.
Comment on the shortage of real estate supply?
Mr. Pham Nhat Vuong: The supply of real estate in the short term is scarce, but when will we not be able to forecast, because this depends on the speed of licensing by state agencies.
But no matter what, the point is to get the final product accepted by the market. In fact, when the supply is high, Vinhomes’ products are still sold stably.
We research how to create the best living and consumption ecosystem for Vinhomes residents, thereby creating an absolute competitive advantage.
Obviously, the price of Vinhomes houses is higher than neighboring residential areas, but why do customers still choose Vinhomes?
