The Vietnam Government aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 2030 to combat against climate change. Carbon emissions from vehicles that consume petrol are one of the main causes of climate change in Vietnam, especially in busy and industrial cities like Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi. In order to reduce traffic congestion, the Vietnam has started to implement city taxes on two-wheelers, with the objective of ultimately phasing out two-wheelers in city areas by 2030.

The adoption of electric vehicles and hybrid cars by Vietnamese consumers will also have a positive impact to fight against climate change. Although Vietnam does have an explicit policy or financial incentives in place for electric vehicle adoption, the Government has proposed preferential tax programs for environmentally friendly vehicles that run on electricity, are hybrid (run on gas and battery), bio-fuel powered vehicles, and vehicles that run on compressed natural gas (CNG).

Furthermore, the Ministry of Transport of Vietnam is working with the relevant government authorities on implementing strategies for developing environmentally friendly transport including preferential policies for electric automobiles, batteries, and parts.

These policies set by the Government and private companies are all steps towards the right direction. However, the largest barrier for purchasing hybrid and electric vehicles in Vietnam is the high cost of importing the vehicles and the limited access to specialist mechanics and parts for maintaining and servicing hybrid and electric vehicles.

This leaves a significantly large opportunity and market-gap for car dealerships and mechanics to specialise in importing, selling and servicing hybrids and electric vehicles. Vietnam’s new and leading online car marketplace.
