Vietnam Gets 3,000 Electric Buses To Reduce Emission And Noise On The Roads

A new non-profit bus service will bring at least 3,000 new electric buses to Vietnamese roads next year with the aim of reducing emissions and noise, according to a report in special interest news portal Electrek.

Vietnamese conglomerate Vingroup announced the creation of VinBus, an electric bus service that seeks to create a modern public transportation system in the country based on emission-free vehicles. VinBus plans to launch in the Vietnamese cities of Hanoi, Hai Phong, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, and Can Tho in March 2020.

Vingroup equipped VinBus with a charter capital of one trillion dong (around $43 million). The service will dispatch electric buses that will be manufactured by the automotive startup VinFast — also a subsidiary of Vingroup. VinFast is currently working on the VinBus factory. The company has partnered with Siemens, which will provide technology and components for production.

The subsidiary will become Vietnam’s first high-volume car manufacturer. It also plans to produce electric cars and scooters in the future. It is a major part of Vingroup’s electric vehicle strategy.

As a nonprofit organisation, VinBus will reinvest all of its income back into the company for service and development improvements. It plans to expand its service area in the future to other cities and regions.

“Ever since joining the automobile-motorcycle manufacturing industry, we have been determined to develop and popularise environmentally friendly electric cars, to gradually replace gasoline vehicles,” Nguyen Viet Quang, vice president of Vingroup, told VN Express.

“Participating in public transport with our smart electric buses is a very important step, moving us forward in applying advanced technology as well as creating a fresh and modern urban environment,” he added.
