Check out this new Vietnamese car company called VinFast

Vietnamese automaker VinFast is set to debut two vehicles at the upcoming Paris Motor Show in October.

Asian cars are everywhere and among the best-selling in the world. There are more Japanese automakers than German and American manufacturers for sale to consumers today, and Korean builders Hyundai and Kia are certainly not going anywhere.

There’s also a bunch of Chinese cars being built, although we have yet to see a Chinese brand offer a vehicle in North America. That should happen in the next few years.

And then there’s VinFast, a brand-new automaker owned by giant VinGroup which will be showcasing two new models, a sedan and an SUV, in Paris in a few weeks. Built to represent a new and progressive Vietnam according to VinFast, these unnamed vehicles were designed by none other than Pininfarina.

That’s really all we know about these two new models right now. We don’t know what kind of engine powers them, what they look like inside, and VinFast’s strategy for bringing them to market.

From the outside, they are both rather handsome. Pop some kind of turbocharged four-cylinder engine under their respective hoods, with maybe a PHEV version with something like 40 kilometers of range, and you could have a real winner.

We’ll keep you posted when VinFast releases more info.
