Vietnamese VinFast buys GM Holden Lang Lang Proving Ground in AustraliaSeptember 16, 2020
The young startup VinFast, which is considered the first domestic automaker in Vietnam, continues to grow rapidly. The company began to produce cars only in July 2019.
Today, three models are produced at the VinFast plant in Haiphong: the Lux A2.0 sedan based on the BMW 5 Series F10, the Lux SA2.0 SUV based on the BMW X5 F15 and the Fadil city car. At the same time, the brand is working on a new electric SUV.
Now it has become known that VinFast has signed an agreement with GM Holden to purchase the famous Lang Lang test site in Australia. This is another step of the Vietnamese brand on the way to conquering the global car market.
Remember, the above-mentioned test site covers 872 hectares and is considered one of the oldest and most modern car testing centers in the world. He went through a total modernization in 2018.
There are several types of tracks, including high-speed tracks, as well as roads that imitate different surfaces. And also the laboratory responsible for the emission standards.
How much this landfill will cost the Vietnamese is not reported. We learn from the press release that the price was “fair”. VinFast believes that a modern testing center will help accelerate the company’s development.
Previously, we said that Lotus will open a new center for the study of advanced technologies. It will be located on the campus of the University of Warwick in the UK. 130 engineers will work here at once.
