HCMC – A VinFast car charging station was put into service on October 24, at a Petrolimex gas station in the northern upland province of Ha Giang.
The electric vehicle (EV) charging station of VinFast, Vietnam’s first manufacturer of electric cars, is located at the Cau Me gas station in Nguyen Trai Ward, Ha Giang City.
It is one of 500 EV charging stations to be installed at Petrolimex gas stations between 2022 and 2023 under a cooperation deal between VinFast and Petrolimex.
The charge point features one 300kW rapid charger and two 60kW ones that are expected to meet the EV charging demand among Vinfast car owners in the far north of the country.
The charging station meets the ISO-15118 and IEC 61851 standards of the International Electrotechnical Commission, ensuring optimal safety of power supply and meeting requirements on fire safety and waterproofing.
The move is part of VinFast’s efforts to set up 150,000 EV chargers in 63 provinces and cities across the country this year.
Aside from Petrolimex, the carmaker also clinched a deal with PetroVietnam Oil Corporation (PVOIL) to install EV charging stations at PVOIL gas stations, with the first one already launched in Cat Hai District in the northern port city of Haiphong.
In 2022, some 300 VinFast EV charging stations are expected to be available at PVOIL gas stations nationwide.
