    With an eye-catching design, a powerful engine and impressive performance, VinFast’s VF 8 has captured the imagination of the EV community. But the VinFast VF 8 has garnered significant attention from EV enthusiasts for something else entirely—its ultra-quick acceleration. The VinFast VF 8 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 5.9 seconds. The upgraded Plus model cranks things up to 402 horsepower and hits 0 to 96 km/h in 5.3 seconds, while still managing to offer 420 km of range.

    The very first VF 8 SUVs were delivered to pioneering VinFast customers in Vietnam at a delivery event in September at the company’s manufacturing complex in Hai Phong. There’s a lot to like about the 2023 VinFast VF 8, and according to VinFast launch event attendee Le Pham Trung Dung, the standard dual-motor all-wheel drive system should help it earn more than a few fans in Vietnam and beyond: “Since the VF 8 came onto the market, I’ve learned a lot. But seeing something once is better than hearing about it a hundred times—and test driving the VF-8 once is better than reading about it a hundred times.” He added, “I just put down my deposit.”

    The two Eco and Plus versions of the VinFast VF 8 have a maximum capacity of 260kW and 300kW, respectively, and a maximum torque of 500Nm to 620Nm. The VinFast VF 8 can accelerate quicker than gasoline automobiles of the same capacity because all of the motor’s torque is utilized to power the vehicle.

    But it’s not all about the acceleration! In addition to enhanced performance, the VinFast VF 8 incorporates several new and features and technologies.

    After just three years in operation, VinFast has managed to bring to market a midsize SUV/C-segment offering an unparalleled driving experience. The VF 8 incorporates self-driving and steering assistance features such as lane departure warning, blind spot warning, and rear cross traffic alert. These cutting-edge technologies help reduce collisions common in urban traffic, particularly in densely populated cities.

    • Park Assist is an automated parking aid that helps drivers park with greater precision, using guidance system technology that rivals ultrasonic and other camera-based solutions with superior technology.
    • Blind Spot Detection (BSD) is a feature that alerts the driver if there is an object in their blind spot. BSD uses sensors to detect vehicles in the blind spot and alerts the driver with an audible and visual warning.
    • Cruise control is a system that automatically maintains a set speed and can be used in both city and highway driving. Cruise control is useful for long distance driving, as it reduces driver fatigue by taking away the need to constantly adjust your speed while you’re behind the wheel, thereby reducing a vehicle’s fuel consumption.
    • A collision warning (CW) system is one of the more advanced driver assistance technologies. It uses sensors to detect when a collision is imminent and warns you in different ways depending on the type of vehicle you’re driving.


    VinFast seems to be making a serious commitment to the American transition from fossil fuels. The VF 8 will lure EV enthusiasts buyers with its Advanced Driver Assistance Systems—and savings on purchase options.
