Although Vietnamese automaker VinFast has yet to bring its first electric cars to the U.S. market this year as promised, it is already unveiling two upcoming models for the U.S. at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which begins Thursday.

The company, which is ditching gas models in favor of electric vehicles this year, is showing off the subcompact VF 6 and compact VF 7 to compliment VF 8 and VF 9 mid-size models which are already open for pre-order.

The four crossovers span the B, C, D and E segments, VinFast said, roughly covering the subcompact and midsize segments in the U.S. The VF 8, which is the first model set to arrive in the U.S., is a two-row crossover, while the VF 9 is a three-row a model that VinFast describes as full-size.

“VinFast will showcase four all-electric SUV models — the VF 6, VF 7, VF 8 and VF 9 — representing the most popular segments,” VinFast said in a statement. “U.S. customers will be the first to see the interior and exterior design details of the VF 6 and VF 7.”

At last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, the automaker introduced the VF 8 and VF 9, though they were then called the e35 and e36, respectively. VinFast began producing gas-powered vehicles in 2019, but announced its global EV intentions at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show. It plans sales in Canada and Europe at the same time as the US

The automaker said it has received more than 65,000 bookings for the VF 8 and VF 9 worldwide, but did not break down the numbers by country or region.

The automaker said last week that it delivered the first batch of VF 8 crossovers to customers in Vietnam in early September “and is set to ship thousands of vehicles to international markets, which are expected to arrive by the end of this year.”
