    The whole idea of switching from real leather to vegan leather is all about the bottom line. Real leather will always cost more than vegan leather. Vinfast is projecting a premium car by promising real leather to sustainable vegan leather. No so premium anymore. “sustainability” is a marking terminology. Vegan is petroleum based. Anyone ever wondered what happens when it ends up in the landfill? Vegan will discolor/degrade faster than leather when in contact with hand lotion, sanitizer, hair spray, perfume, sunscreen etc. I have both vegan and real leather shoes Can you guess which one cracked and peeled within a year? No worries, every part of that cow was put to good use.
