VinFast Canada Posts VF 8 and VF 9 Pricing

VinFast Canada has priced its new EVs aggressively

  • The VF 8 starts at $51,250.

  • The larger VF 9 is priced from $69,750.

  • Pricing does not include battery subscription fees.

VinFast is another EV start-up company that will be fascinating to watch. In little time, they went from completely unknown in North America about six months ago to making serious headlines since last fall’s Los Angeles auto show. After sharing pricing details for the US in January, now it’s Canada’s turn.

EV Maker VinFast Plans Battery Leasing Option in Canada

Initially introduced as the VF e35 and VF e36, VinFast’s electric SUVs were rebaptized VF 8 and VF 9 earlier this year. Other than the names, the two midsize SUVs are unchanged. The first round of reservations opened in early January and will end on April 5th. So far, VinFast Canada has 300 completed reservations.

The news today is that pricing was revealed and quite discreetly we might add. The new VinFast VF 8 will be priced from $51,250 while the large VF 9 will start at $69,750. These prices are for the ECO or base versions of each model.

Earlier this week, VinFast introduced the fact that Canadians will buy the vehicles from the company and lease the battery separately. The lease payment is not included in the posted pricing, nor is it available at this moment.
