Vietnamese automaker VinFast revealed its Italian-designed first production cars that will debut at the Paris auto show on Oct. 2.
It said the sedan and SUV represent the "powerful, progressive spirit of a new, energetic and developing Vietnam."
VinFast is part of Vietnamese conglomerate Vingroup and is led by James DeLuca, former vice president of manufacturing for General Motors.
The SUV is similar in size to the BMW X5. Its more muscular hood and bold character lines give it a more sporty identity, VinFast said in a statement on Monday.
The sedan is the same length as cars such as the BMW 5 series. It has long hood, classic trunk and horizontal body lines.
