Pininfarina has developed the design of the first Vietnamese carsFebruary 14, 2018
The Italian body studio Pininifarina has published design sketches of the new sedan and crossover, which will be the first in the history of Vietnamese cars. The local company Vinfast will manufacture the machines.
In total, the Italian studio has created 20 design concepts for future models. Then there was a vote, in which potential customers were asked to choose the most successful options, corresponding to “Vietnamese tastes and world trends”. More than 62 thousand people took part in the survey.
Judging by the images, the sedan will receive a narrow LED front optics, merging with the radiator grille and a special curved hood. A similar design for the front end will be in the crossover, which also receives plastic protection for the lower body, roof rails and large wheel arches.
Vinfast, which will be the first independent car brand in Vietnam, expects to launch the first model in September 2019. By 2025 the company is going to start producing up to half a million cars annually.
Earlier it became known that Pininfarina will present at the Geneva Motor Show the HK GT supercar, developed for the Hong Kong company Hybrid Kinetic Group (HKG). Part of the power unit will be a microturbogenerator.
