August has been pretty bleak for car sales in Vietnam with the country experiencing a major spike in Covid-19 cases and the country undergoing a lockdown. Sales have been down for almost every brand with even the country’s most popular models posting three-digit figure sales.

The only exception, curiously, was the Vinfast Fadil which sold 2,054 units in the same period. The rebadged Opel Adam crossover hatchback is Vietnam’s most popular car in August and is likely to take the crown of the country’s best-selling car of 2021.
