|VinFast made its operations in Australia official|
Located at Melbourne city of Australia, VinFast Australia will study and develop new automobile models and set a solid base for VinFast's overseas expansion plans.
Establishing VinFast Australia is an opportunity to approach the international market and connect with the world’s leading suppliers as well as catch up with new technology and trends across the globe. This facility’s key target is to study and develop new models with both petroleum and electric versions.
VinFast Australia started operations in early 2020 with the key facility of an automobile technology institute. The institute employs nearly 100 official staff, including experts, technicians, and engineers from the world’s leading car makers General Motors (GM), Toyota, Ford, Jaguar, and Land Rover, among others.
The company, in addition to having an eye on Holden, the legendary car brand that is about to close down in Australia, also expressed interest in acquiring the design and engineering facilities of GM Australia, including the Lang Lang testing system which is in the same situation as Holden.
Head of the institute is Kevin Yardley, who used to be the senior manager at GM Holden – which is the pride of Australia. He also has experience in studying and developing new models in China and India.
Melbourne not only has many new vehicle testing centres but also a large wind tunnel ready for aerodynamic testing of car companies, as well as a seaport to act as a gateway to export cars to the globe.
