    While there have been many EV start-ups recently, perhaps none have sprung to prominence as quickly as the Vietnamese brand VinFast. In a short time, the company has released various models, including the head-turning VF8 and VF9.

    As these SUVs hit American roads, it's interesting to see what some media outlets have to say. Let's look at some early media views and reviews.

    What People Are Saying about the VinFast VF8 and VF9


    Autoguide says there is much to like about the 2023 VinFast VF8. They also say it bodes well for a new company to produce a solid first EV in a much shorter time than an established brand.

    Hot Cars

    Hot Cars says the VF8 can be a fierce competitor alongside established options such as the Mustang Mach-E.

    Motor Trend

    Motor Trend loves the elegant, modern styling (from design house Pininfarina), competitive pricing, and powerful drivetrain.


    CNet believes VinFast will likely emerge as a global force in the EV world, including in America. The VF8 is the right vehicle at the right time to take advantage of the compact crossover segment.

    Detroit Bureau

    The Detroit Bureau thinks that the VF8 will have a lot to offer for a reasonably affordable price. With a support program that can minimize the inconvenience by providing service in the consumer's driveway, this newbie EV "could be a true breakout," according to the Bureau.

    Kelley Blue Book

    Andy Bornhop of Kelley Blue Book loves the fact that the VF8 has an all-wheel-drive as standard. He champions the expected range of 316 miles and highlights the attractive Italian styling.

    Hi, just curious following the KBB comment: which of the cars has a range of 316 miles?

    I’m personally really looking forward to the VF9 extended range as it’s the only reasonably priced full size SUV so far. Can’t wait to get my hands on it
