The company will also rent Vinfast’s VF e34 and VF 8 electric cars to transport companies.

GSM expects to have 10,000 cars and 100,000 motorbikes, all made by VinFast, a unit of Vingroup.

The company was established to speed up the completion of Vietnam’s green ecosystem and smart transport, said GSM CEO Nguyen Van Thanh.

Customers can experience electric vehicles, whether for a few minutes in a taxi, or a few months in a rented car, which Thanh says will help speed up the green revolution in Vietnam.

Last year, VinFast delivered 7,200 electric cars to Vietnamese customers. And in December last year its two models, the VF e34 and VF 8, were among the top 10 best-selling models in Vietnam.

The company delivered its first electric cars to American customers on March 2.
