Vietnam’s answer to Tesla has U.S. in its electric sights

That’s the proposition being offered by the automobile arm of Vietnam’s largest conglomerate, Vingroup. It’s betting big on the U.S. market with its VinFast line of cars and hoping that electric SUVs and a battery leasing model will be enough to woo consumers away from homegrown market leaders like Tesla and General Motors Co. A recent arrival on the automotive scene and the No. 5 car brand in Vietnam, VinFast is not short on ambition, with its sights set on a U.S. listing and a valuation of as much as $60 billion, according to two sources familiar with its plans.
