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.

The Truong Hai Automobile Company (Thaco) has introduced the locally made new Kia Sorento at showrooms across the nation this month.

The Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) has been the second design unveiled by the brand, which is being manufactured at the Thaco Kia Plant in the Truong Hai-Chu Lai Auto Complex in the central Quang Nam Province.

The new diesel engine Sorento, which is offered at a price of VND1 billion (US$47,600), will offer a boost to the SUV segment of the auto market during the second quarter of 2014.

The car maker sold 28,284 vehicles last year and recorded a 14 per cent growth. Kia posted the best sales figure of 8,870 cars last year.

Thaco has so far manufactured and distributed three brands: Kia of South Korea, Mazda of Japan, and France's Peugeot.

The company launched the first locally made Peugeot 408 model, in collaboration with the French automaker, Peugeot, before manufacturing and assembling the Peugeot 3008 model.
