Vinfast, a unit of Vietnam's Vingroup conglomerate, is focused on launching sales of its electric SUVs in the US market later this year, but its vehicle platform allows for expansion into other types of vehicles, Craig Westbrook, chief service officer for Vinfast US, said at an Automotive Press Association event in Detroit.

Ford Motor, Rivian, and General Motors currently sell electric pickup trucks, and Tesla plans to begin production of its Cybertruck pickup in mid-2023. 

Vinfast began building EVs in Vietnam at the end of last year and is targeting a shift to all-electric production by 2023.

The company's plans to begin vehicle production at a plant in North Carolina remain on track for July 2024, Westbrook said.
