HANOI -- Vingroup, Vietnam's largest conglomerate, is pulling out all the stops as it prepares to break into Western auto markets with its first electric vehicles, just a few years after its first foray into auto manufacturing.

Two electric models from subsidiary VinFast will be on display at next month's Los Angeles Auto Show in California. The company will begin taking orders in the U.S. and Europe in the first half of next year. Pricing and other details are expected to be announced on Nov. 17.
