VinFast Manufacturing

This project for VinFast will be the first electric vehicle manufacturing facility in North Carolina, and will help contribute to the supply of electric vehicles in North America.

Covering an area of approximately 1,800 acres, VinFast’s factory is designed to reach a capacity of 150,000 vehicles per year in Phase 1. The factory will consist of both electric vehicle production and assembly.

The manufacturing facility in North Carolina is one of VinFast’s key projects. When it begins operations, the factory will be VinFast’s primary supplier of electric vehicles to the North American market, allowing for optimized production and business activities.

The factory is expected to start production in 2025. Last year, VinFast was awarded a $1.2 billion incentive package from the State of North Carolina for this project, along with critical financial support from the City of Sanford, Chatham County and the Golden Leaf Foundation.

In addition to the factory, VinFast is accelerating its business and brand recognition in the U.S, by expanding its retail store and service center system, organizing local test drives and displaying products events throughout California. These efforts will aid in bringing opportunities for customers to directly experience VinFast’s EVs.


Clayco broke ground on a sprawling, 3-million-square-foot VinFast electric vehicle manufacturing campus near Raleigh, North Carolina. Phase 1 of this project will include manufacturing facilities for electric cars, producing 150,000 vehicles annually and creating 1,500+ jobs once operational.
