VinFast receives $20.5 mln US tax credit

Vietnamese electric vehicle manufacturer VinFast received a $20.5-million tax credit from the U.S. state of California for establishing its national headquarters there.

VinFast will invest over $200 million and create at least 1,065 new full-time jobs in the state, the governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development announced Nov. 4.

"VinFast is planning to bring its all-electric sport utility vehicles (SUVs) to the U.S. next year, and we wanted to make sure that it chose California for its U.S. headquarters," Scott Dosick, deputy director of the California Competes (CalCompetes) Tax Credit, said.

"The CalCompetes tax credit is one of California’s greatest tools for recruiting businesses to California when they are being actively courted by numerous states. We are proud that VinFast will call California home".

VinFast, the automobile arm of Vietnam's largest conglomerate, Vingroup, became the country's first domestic car manufacturer in 2019.

It is aiming to debut in the U.S. with two battery electric SUVs and set up 60 showrooms across the country next year, the company said.
