VinFast on Monday announced the names of its first two cars as LUX A2.0 for the sedan and LUX SA2.0 for the sports utility vehicle (SUV), just one day before its first attendance at the Paris Motor Show 2018 on October 2.

VinFast said LUX was the prefix in ‘Luxury’, meaning high-end quality in the advanced segment of cars produced by VinFast. The LUX A2.0 and LUX SA2.0 are the firm’s two debut models.
Next to the letter LUX is the letter ‘A’ – the first letter of the alphabet with multiple meanings. The letter ‘A’ stands for international standards, and also the goal of becoming Viet Nam’s leading automobile manufacturing company. In particular, the letter ‘A’ also contains VinFast’s pioneering aspirations in the automobile industry, aiming to develop itself into a global automaker.
The suffix 2.0 in the name of both models are technical specifications, representing the engine capacity of each vehicle. The difference for the SUV is the ‘S’ character.
The names of the first VinFast models are compact and easy to read, remember and spread, as well as being universal in most languages. The names LUX A2.0 and LUX SA2.0 also confirm the pioneering and global vision of VinFast.
After LUX, VinFast will roll out various models of cars with names that match the position of each segment.
VinFast is currently co-operating with leading names in Europe and America in the automotive field such as BMW, Bosch, Magna Steyr and Pininfarina, who have the best technology and experience in the world, creating LUX A2.0 and LUX SA2.0 with superior "Vietnamese identity - Italian design - German technology - international standard".
The sedan LUX A2.0 and the SUV LUX SA2.0 will be available to the general public and professionals from October 2-14 at the Paris Motor Show 2018. The models are expected to hit the market in the third quarter of next year.
At 15:25 (Vietnamese time) on October 2, VinFast will introduce its two models of sedan and SUV at the Paris Motor Show 2018. The programme will be broadcast live on VTV1 and livestreamed on the website and fanpage of VinFast, and other communication channels. — VNS
