VinFast signs dealer sales agreement with BAT

MUSCAT, February 27, 2024

VinFast Auto has signed a dealer sales agreement with Bahwan Automobiles Trading LLC (BAT) for the distribution of electric vehicles in the Oman market. 
 
This marks not only the Vietnamese company’s first operation in the Middle East region but also a significant step in VinFast’s global expansion.
 
Under the terms of the agreement, BAT will become the official dealer of VinFast in Oman. From 2024 to 2027, BAT plans to establish and operate 13 VinFast stores and service centres. 
 
Four e-SUV models
The inaugural store is anticipated to open in mid-2024, with vehicle sales commencing shortly thereafter. Additionally, VinFast will collaborate with BAT to sell four e-SUV models: VF 6, VF 7, VF 8, and VF 9 upon their market launch. 
 
Previously, within the framework of the United Nations Climate Change Conference 2023 (COP 28) held in the UAE, VinFast and BAT signed a Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation. Through this collaboration with its first dealer in Oman, VinFast actively contributes to the realisation of green mobility solutions within the Middle Eastern region, while affirming the commitment of the Vietnamese electric vehicle manufacturer to making electric vehicles more accessible to everyone.
 
Ta Xuan Hien, CEO of VinFast Middle East, said: "Oman presents a promising market for electric vehicles, as consumers in the nation demonstrate a growing interest in sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation solutions. We are confident that this Dealer Sales agreement with BAT, a leading and highly reputable dealer in Oman, will empower VinFast to swiftly establish a presence in the market and provide customers in the country with the most diverse and high-quality selection of electric vehicles available."
 
Innovative products
Abdullah Ahmed Suhail Bahwan, Executive Director of Bahwan Automobiles Trading, said: "VinFast is a pioneering electric vehicle manufacturer in Vietnam renowned for its strategic vision and innovative products. We firmly believe that this dealer sales agreement will introduce stunning electric vehicle models to the Oman market, contributing to the development of the electric vehicle sector in Oman and enhancing the electric mobility experience for our customers."
 
The electric vehicle market in Oman is projected to experience significant growth in the coming years. The Omani government has implemented numerous initiatives to encourage the use of electric vehicles, aiming to address climate change, reduce carbon emissions, and limit the consumption of fossil fuels.--TradeArabia News Service
