As far as price competitiveness, the Vietnamese auto industry enjoys domestic protectionist policies. Cars and car parts of imports are taxed 60%. However VN does not have supporting industries so they have to import parts which are taxed 60% making the automobiles more expensive than it should be.

But in 5 years VN will eliminate import duties as a free trade agreement with ASEAN. So parts will be available for cheaper. However, import cars will be cheaper so it has to compete with foreign made vehicles especially from Thailand. They would have to worry about advertisement to capture public interests also.

The Vietnamese government also don't want more cars on the road. They want public transportation. That's why most Vietnamese automakers mainly make buses and cargo trucks. Maybe they can export these buses if they can develop an advance technology. Vinamotor and Seimens just developed a hybrid deisel-electric bus in Hanoi to reduce air pollution and save fuel.

The Vinaxuki line has a lot of variety.

This is the Vinaxuki Pickup 650X. Costs $10k.  Has anyone seen anyone driving a pickup truck is VN? Wouldn't there be at least 50 people riding in the back?

I want one of these to haul rocks.
