Weatherhead’s Michael Goldberg discusses Tesla’s rival import of first batch of cars

Vietnamese Tesla rival sets sail for the U.S. market
The StreetMichael Goldberg, associate professor of design and innovation at Weatherhead School of Management and executive director of the Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship, discussed the arrival of a Tesla rival importing its first batch of cars into the United States. “While VinFast has a production facility in Haiphong, they believe the investment in the North Carolina plant positions them to compete more effectively in the U.S. against Tesla and other EV manufacturers,” he said. “It reminds me a bit of Honda’s decision to open a production facility in Ohio in 1982 to get closer to customers here.”
