The Vietnamese EV maker VinFast has filed a design patent for the VF3 micro electric SUV in India. The SUV was first revealed in Vietnam.

The EV comes with a distinctive look in the micro SUV segment with its tall and boxy posture, flared wheel arches, thick bumpers, and 2-door layout.

The EV maker signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Tamil Nadu government just a few days ago. VinFast set foot in the Indian market with its first integrated EV manufacturing facility located in Tamil Nadu. The plant spans across 400 acres within the SIPCOT (State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu) industrial estate, and it represents a total investment of INR 4,165 crore ($500 million) for five years. The auto giant claims that the new facility will create 3,500 job opportunities and has a capacity of manufacturing 150,000 vehicles per year.

VinFast is also planning to establish a wide dealership network in India to build a robust brand presence and connect with local customers across the nation. In the Indian market, the auto giant is working to launch premium quality products, after-sales services, and competitive pricing to make EVs accessible to customers.
