HANOI – 25 April 2022 – VinFast has chosen B-EV Motors as its electric vehicle distributor representative in Israel. According to the agreement, B-EV Motors will only distribute VinFast products, and VinFast and B-EV Motors will be the first to introduce unprecedented policies to the Israeli market.
Israel’s goal of reaching 100% electric vehicles on its roads by 2030 and the adaptability of its transportation infrastructure represent the driving forces behind the country’s development of electrified mobility. These qualities are in addition to Israel’s other distinctive features, such as short driving distances, lower electricity prices compared to raw materials, and advanced technical infrastructure, that make the country an ideal market for VinFast to rapidly promote its brand and products.
Accompanying VinFast in the Israeli market will be B-EV Motors. This is one of the pioneering electric vehicle business models in Israel, which fully combines a digital platform and a store system, providing outstanding after-sales services and optimal charging solutions.
About this partnership, Ms. Le Thi Thu Thuy, Vingroup’s Vice Chairwoman and VinFast Global CEO, said: “Our vision has been set on becoming a global electric vehicle brand from the very beginning. Israel is an ideal destination for our global expansion and journey toward the Future of Mobility. B-EV Motors will join us in laying a solid foundation for VinFast’s presence in this market. Most importantly, we share the same vision for electrified mobility: transportation must be greener, smarter, and always enjoyable on every journey.”
Mr. Niv Oron – Co-CEO of B-EV, said: “We are proud to represent and distribute VinFast electric vehicles in Israel. We believe that VinFast will quickly gain an important position in the electric vehicle industry through its exquisite designs, high quality, and advanced technologies. With a wealth of experience and a unique go-to-market strategy that includes a digital platform, B-EV is confident that it will be an ideal partner for VinFast to realize its vision of driving the movement of the global smart electric vehicle revolution.”
VinFast’s first two electric car models, VF 8 and VF 9, will be made available for reservation in the Israeli market by the fourth quarter of 2022 and come with a 10-year or the first 200,000-km warranty policy.
The VF 8 and VF 9 were debuted at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show and CES 2022. With the elegance of world-renowned Pininfarina Design crafted into all of VinFast’s EVs, the two models will impress and captivate the public. The brand utilized modern design languages to optimize aerodynamics and create comfortable driving experiences while upholding aesthetics that reflect each segment’s unique features.
The VF 8 and VF 9 are equipped with level 2+ Advanced Driver-Assistance System features for Eco and Plus versions, and levels 3 and 4 Autonomous Driving for Premium versions.
