In the above 5 product groups, Mercedes-Benz Vietnam has strategic and competitive cards. Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Maybach S-Class or Mercedes-AMG G 63 are still leading the segment, making it difficult for rivals in the same class.
Along with Mercedes-Benz, BMW is expected to launch many new models in Vietnam. The German automaker will almost certainly introduce new facelifted versions of the BMW X3 and BMW X4, competing in the small SUV and SUV-Coupe segments.

Besides, BMW can create a sales boom in the second half of 2022 if the rumors about the locally assembled product range are true. There were rumors that BMW would assemble a series of popular models such as BMW 3-Series, BMW X3, BMW X5 and BMW X7, promising to bring more competitive prices. However, the above information has not been confirmed by THACO so far.
The counterpart of Mercedes-Benz and BMW in 2022 is Audi, when the German compatriots bring an attractive new product range in both quantity and quality.
