’Vietnamese Identity - Italian Design - German Technology - International Standards’ - This is the slogan used by VinFast, the new Vietnamese automobile manufacturer. The automotive division of the Vietnamese Vingroup has taken up the cause of changing mobility in Vietnam.
A license agreement with a German premium manufacturer in the area of the powertrain allows VinFast to produce an SUV and a Sedan model based on models of the licensor. MANN+HUMMEL now also supplies products to VinFast under the license agreement. These are installed in the SUV Lux SA 2.0 and the Sedan Lux A 2.0.
MANN+HUMMEL was a development partner and series supplier for both models of the licensor for numerous powertrain components, including air cleaner systems, charge air ducts, oil filter systems, fuel filters, intake manifolds and other components. It is no surprise that VinFast has opted for proven technology. In accordance with the license agreement, MANN+HUMMEL will supply all the components also to VinFast.
The production of the components will be made at the proven locations of the global production network. MANN+HUMMEL Ludwigsburg, Germany, will supply the oil modules, air cleaners and clean air ducts. The French location at Laval will produce the charge air ducts. The fuel filters will be produced in Okříšky, Czech Republic, and the intake manifold will be produced in Changchun, China with further plastic parts manufactured in Mexico. This allows VinFast to utilize ‘German Technology’ and maintain ’International Standards’.
