VinFast Has Delivered its First Production VF 8 Electric SUVs to Customers

VinFast looks to be on track to export about 5,000 VF 8 SUVs to the US, Canada, and Europe by year’s end


  • The first 100 were handed over to their new owners at an event held at the VinFast manufacturing complex.

  • Global deliveries are slated to begin this December.


Almost exactly four years ago, we published our first report on the Vietnamese automaker, and barely more than a day ago, VinFast delivered the first 100 all-new production VF 8 units to their new owners.

It will Cost up to $199 per Month to Lease a Battery from VinFast in Canada

Things really began rolling for the car company when they introduced the VF e35 and e36 electric SUVs at the 2021 Los Angeles auto show. Since then, the vehicles have changed names, became available for order, were priced, and by the looks of it, early adopters in North America will take delivery of their EVs by year’s end.

Speaking at the event held on Saturday, Madam Le Thi Thu Thuy – Vice Chairwoman of Vingroup and Global CEO of VinFast – said: “Today’s event marks a turning point for Vietnam’s auto industry. In this historic moment, we are extremely happy to deliver the first batch of VF 8 all-electric vehicles to our pioneering customers in Vietnam. And very soon, the enthusiasm will be realized by more than 65,000 pioneering customers worldwide.”

Pricing for the VF 8 Eco starts at $54,990. The VF 9 Eco is priced from $79,990. Official NRCan range numbers are not yet available however the Standard Range VF 8 is projected to deliver 420 km (WLTP) while the VF 9 with the same battery should go 400 km (WLTP).
