The Vietnamese-made electric car, the VinFast VF e34 EV, won four stars for the ASEAN NCAP crash test.

It is known that VinFast is quite diligent in sending their cars to undergo the ASEAN NCAP crash test session. Some of the cars they sent include VinFast Fadil, VinFast Lux SA2.0 and VinFast Lux A2.0. The cars were hit tested with the old method or protocol.
Actually, in terms of assessment, VinFast VF e34 EV is considered to have failed to achieve five stars. The reason is that the accumulated scores from the exams only reached 78.99 points. However, according to ASEAN NCAP, the achievement of four stars is sufficient.

Currently VinFast e34 EV is sold at a price of 690 million Dong. The electric car is equipped with a front-mounted electric motor with a power of 150 PS and a maximum torque of 242 Nm.
