2024 VinFast VF8 Fully Electric Crossover


The VF8 is a fully electric crossover from a Vietnamese brand that nobody in America has ever heard of. It has been criticized for just about everything, today I am going to figure out if it deserves that reputation. I’ll review this new VinFast VF8 and I’ll show you the many quirks and features. I’m also going to get behind the wheel and show you what it’s like to drive.

Sharp & fluid lines provide a sporty, aerodynamic appearance. Equipped with heating, automatic anti-glare, and position memorization. Every VinFast vehicle is built to protect by including a full range of safety features and smart design like head-up display to keep your eyes on the road, and a high-end digital security system to alert emergency services when in an accident.

The new 87.7-kWh battery boosts the VF8’s range into the mid-200-mile realm. Updates to the VF8’s suspension to improve ride and handling are in the works. Every VF8 uses an all-wheel-drive electric powertrain with two electric motors. The base model makes 349 horsepower with 369 pound-feet of torque. The zippier Plus model cranks output to 402 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque.


With the exterior doing its best to be stylish to the eyes, VinFast claimed that it used the interior to showcase their commitment of delivering comfort and technology. A prominent part of the cabin is the massive 15.6-inch infotainment system that dominates the central part of the dashboard. Like Tesla’s equally massive unit, the screen here in the VinFast serves as a central hub for various features and owners will have to use the screen to access a wide array of features.
