CKD: The Key to Success:

VinFast’s secret weapon is the Complete Knock Down (CKD) assembly process. This means importing car parts and assembling them locally, a strategy that offers several advantages:

  • Reduced Costs: Lower import duties translate to more competitive pricing for consumers.
  • Faster Production: CKD assembly allows for quicker turnaround times, ensuring a steady supply of VinFast EVs.
  • Local Job Creation: The manufacturing plant will create employment opportunities in the region.
  • Customization: CKD allows for tailoring vehicles to meet specific Indian market preferences.

The VF e34, an electric SUV, is a likely contender, given its successful trials. With an estimated range of 300 kilometers on a single charge, it could be a game-changer in the Indian EV segment.
