The VF 8 five-seat midsize crossover has an estimated range of 504 kilometers on a charge and will start at $51,250.
The three-row, full-size VF 9 SUV is expected to go 550 kilometers and begins at $69,750.
Electric-vehicle manufacturer VinFast has announced Canadian pricing for its first two Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) models. Reservations are now open, and customers can even get a week at a resort as part of the deal.
The VF 8 five-seat midsize crossover has an estimated range of 504 kilometers on a charge and will start at $51,250. The three-row, full-size VF 9 SUV is expected to go 550 kilometers and begins at $69,750.
Both make 402 horsepower (300 kW) and 472 lb-ft of torque. The company said the VF 8 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.5 seconds, while the larger VF 9 takes one second longer than that.
Both include eleven airbags, and driver-assist technologies like highway driving assist, automatic lane-changing assist, and remote parking.
Canadians can reserve a vehicle for a fully-refundable $250 deposit. From now until April 5, 2022, those who do will be considered “pioneer customers” and will receive extra benefits.
These include an e-voucher to take $3,500 off the price of a VF 8 when it arrives; or $6,000 off a VF 9; a mobile charger for the vehicle; and free driving technology and connectivity packages.
VinFast is based in Vietnam, and pioneer customers will also get a seven-day tour and seaside villa accommodations for four, although you’ll have to buy your own flights.
