Vietnam’s Green Pathway: Pioneering Policies for an EV Future

Vietnam is on an exhilarating journey towards a greener future, with the government steering the nation towards an electric vehicle (EV) revolution. The country’s commitment to sustainable mobility is evident in its forward-thinking policies and initiatives that are setting the stage for a transformative leap in the EV industry.

Charging Ahead with Incentives 

The Ministry of Transport has proposed a $1,000 incentive to boost EV use, recognizing the pivotal role of EVs in achieving environmental goals. This bold move is complemented by a suite of incentives aimed at developing charging infrastructure, including support for loan interest rates, preferential electricity prices, and prioritization of electricity supply for public charging stations.

By 2030, Vietnam’s vision is to see EVs account for 10% of all new vehicles sold. This ambitious target is backed by policies that encourage the growth of the EV market, not just in terms of demand but as a catalyst for economic growth and job creation.


Building the Infrastructure 

Vietnam’s charging infrastructure is gaining momentum, with domestic and foreign investments flowing into the production of EVs and the necessary support systems. The government’s strategic vision for EV deployment and transportation sector decarbonization is clear, and there is a growing need for specific policies, regulations, and standards that cover EV charging.

With initiatives like Decision No. 876/QD-TTq, Vietnam is laying down the groundwork for a green energy transition and CO2 and methane emissions mitigation in transportation. The goal is to produce 250,000 EV units annually, establish 20,000 charging stations, and ensure that 15-20% of Hanoi’s public transportation uses renewable energy by 2025.

Together, MET EV witnesses Vietnam’s bold strides toward a sustainable future. It’s a narrative of innovation, responsibility, and hope. With each policy and each charging station, Vietnam is not just preparing for an electric future; it’s electrifying the present.
