QOTD: Will VinFast Make Its Delivery Goal?

Autoblog has a report via Reuters suggesting that VinFast will make its first U.S. deliveries the day after tomorrow.

California-based buyers who put down a refundable deposit were told that they will get their vehicles starting Wednesday and that the pricing will be cut by over 50 percent from what we thought it might be.

VinFast has moved pretty fast for a company that just made inroads into the U.S. at the end of 2021, though it's well-established elsewhere in the world. We're guessing that because of the company's experience, at least some models will be delivered as promised. Though we're also naturally skeptical because so many startups have run into last-second delay issues.

What do you think? Will some California-based VinFast buyers have their new rides in their driveway just two days from now? Or will we see news this week of a delay?

Sound off below.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.
