VinFast, with an enterprise value of $27 billion and an equity value of $23 billion, is moving rapidly to solidify its manufacturing presence and potential public listing. Despite its significant manufacturing infrastructure, the Vietnamese automaker remains relatively unknown to many. Early reviews indicate that some perceive its cars to be not of production car quality. Nevertheless, VinFast has already outpaced other EV startups in terms of its manufacturing footprint and expansion plans.
