VinFast invests in manufacturing solid-state batteries in Vietnam

Solid-state batteries will propel VinFast toward its electric car ambitions

VinFast Trading and Production LLC and ProLogium Technology Co., Ltd. (Taiwan) signed an MoU on strategic cooperation to manufacture solid-state batteries for electric cars in Vietnam.

Under the agreement, VinFast and ProLogium will establish a joint venture to manufacture solid-state batteries for electric cars in Vietnam. This joint venture will have access to patents and be allowed to use ProLogium’s MAB solid-state battery packaging technology to produce CIM/CIP solid-state batteries in Vietnam.

This is a strategic step in VinFast’s autonomous battery technology for electric vehicles, a premise for the research and development of smart and advanced electric vehicles in the future.

ProLogium is a world leader in the commercialisation of solid-state battery technology since 2013. In 2017, ProLogium became the first company in the world to have a test line for solid-state battery technology for automotive applications.

To date, ProLogium’s automotive solid-state batteries have passed numerous safety tests in Europe and China, which are the world’s largest electric vehicle markets. ProLogium is also working with the world’s leading electric vehicle manufacturers to test new battery technology on cars, and is expected to put into operation and mass production from 2023-2024.

The use of solid-state batteries will help VinFast electric cars go longer distances, reduce charging time, and increase the total number of times they can be charged.

The partnership with ProLogium is the next step of VinFast in the roadmap towards becoming a global smart electric car brand. Previously, VinFast announced its first three lines of self-propelled electric cars level 2-3 named VF31, VF32, VF33. The company is also deploying the installation of charging stations across the country, with the goal of having more than 40,000 charging ports for electric scooters and electric cars by the end of this year.
