Reviews and Comparisons of VinFast’s Electric SUVs: VF 8 and VF 9

VinFast introduced two attractive options in the rapidly changing world of electric vehicles: the VF 8 and the VF 9. Both vehicles are designed with the intention of catering to distinct customer segments. The VF 8 is intended for families seeking a dependable and eco-friendly vehicle option, while the VF 9 is an exciting option for individuals seeking premiumness due to its luxurious driving experience.

Style and Dimensions

VinFast’s design philosophy, which emphasizes sophistication and aerodynamic efficiency, is followed by both the VF 8 and VF 9. Although there are some differences, comfort and style are given priority in both models. With seating for six or seven people, the VF 9 is a sophisticated three-row SUV that is ideal for families or those who need more passenger space. Its impressive 201.4-inch length gives it a formidable presence on the road, and its larger panoramic glass roof is a result of its overall increased size.

The VF 8, on the other hand, is a two-row electric SUV designed for better mobility and city driving. Despite having a reduced passenger capacity, the VF 8’s panoramic sunroof adds to the car’s interior space, and its shorter body makes it an excellent choice for city driving and fast roads. Both electric vehicles have luxurious vegan leather upholstery and adjustable ambient lighting on the inside, while the outside features stunning exterior design by the well-known Italian design company Pininfarina.


Electric drivetrains with all-wheel drive are fitted to the VF 8 and VF 9. On the other hand, the VF 9 can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 6.5 seconds thanks to its two electric motors, which have a combined output of 402 horsepower. It has a sizable 123 kWh usable battery capacity, giving the ECO Trim an EPA range of 330 miles.

However, with 402 horsepower in the V F8 Plus trim, the VF 8 is no slouch in the performance arena. Even with its reduced usable battery capacity of 87.7 kWh, it still provides an excellent EPA range of 264 miles for the ECO Trim. With competitive ranges among electric cars, easy access to 93% of the network of charging stations, and rapid charging times. Concerns about range are allayed for those thinking about making the switch to electric by the VF 8 and VF 9. 

Technology and Safety

Advanced safety features are prioritized in both VinFast models. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and other state-of-the-art safety technologies are standard on every vehicle to protect the lives of drivers and passengers. In order to help drivers stay focused on the road, these features include Highway Assist, Adaptive Cruise Assist, Smart Parking Assist, Auto Emergency Brake, and a driver monitoring system that guarantees constant vigilance. The remarkable 11 airbags on both VinFast models—nearly twice the industry standard—further enhance occupant protection. Because of Auto E-call and the Emergency SOS button, the ADAS can also quickly notify emergency services in the event of an accident.

The price of an electric car can frequently be a deciding factor because many people want to know how much they will actually save by driving one. The VF 8 is available at a more reasonable starting price of $51,800 for the VF 8 PLUS and $46,000 for the VF 8 ECO. By comparison, the VF 9 is priced in a higher tier; the ECO model starts at $83,000, while the VF 9 PLUS costs $93,000. It’s crucial to remember that both models come equipped with optional Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which are highly expensive on other brands. 

Both the VinFast VF 8 and VF 9 are attractive options for electric vehicles that represent an unwavering dedication to quality in terms of comfort, safety, performance, and design. The VF 8 excels in space and dependability, making it perfect for large families, urban drivers, and those looking to transition to the advantages of an electric car. Meanwhile, the VF 9 offers a premium, sophisticated experience suited for drivers seeking luxury and families. Ultimately, though, these two models cater to different consumer preferences and driving needs.
