Vinfast unveils VF 6 and VF 7 electric SUVs in the US market

Vinfast is quickly becoming a sneaky bet in the EV market after adding two new electric SUVs, the VF 6 and VF 7, to its US lineup. With a portfolio of four electric SUVs, one in each of the most popular segments, Vinfast seeks to become the “electric vehicle maker for everyone”.

After Vinfast delivered its first electric model, the VF e34, making it the first electric vehicle sold in Vietnam, the company set its sights on becoming a global electric vehicle manufacturer.

Vinfast is part of Vietnam’s largest private company, Vingroup, which focuses on creating a “better life for people” through its sustainable technology and services.

The automaker made waves in the electric vehicle market after debuting the VF 8 and VF 9 at the Los Angeles Auto Show last year. Within 48 hours of opening reservations for the electric SUVs, Vinfast says it received 24,000 global orders.

To align its strategy to become a global electric powerhouse, Vinfast has pledged to end production of internal combustion vehicles (ICEs) by the end of 2022 while unveiling an electric model in every automotive segment.

Vinfast delivered its first 100 VF 8 electric SUVs in September, reiterating its intentions to become a global brand. The company said the next batch (approximately 5,000) will ship to the US, Canada and Europe from November 2022, so customers could expect to start receiving them by the end of it. of the year.

US customers will now have access to two more electric SUVs, the VF 6 and VF 7, as Vinfast gives us a glimpse of what to expect.

Vinfast reveals details of two new electric SUVs available in the US

At the Los Angeles Auto Show, Vinfast gave a first look at what US-based customers can expect from the automaker’s smaller electric SUV models co-designed with renowned Italian design house Torino Design. .

Vinfast CEO Le Thi Thu Thuy explains the importance of adding two new electric models to North America, saying:

The VinFast VF 6 and VF 7 have premium interior and exterior design, luxurious interior space and state-of-the-art technology. With four electric car models that have been introduced in North America so far, covering BCDE segments, each model is created for a specific customer with a unique style and high usage value, VinFast is quickly becoming a manufacturer of electric vehicles for all.

The VF 7 is the company’s compact SUV, slightly larger than the VF 6, which combines a “dynamic” exterior with a modern, technology-focused interior. Vinfast highlights the shape of the compact SUV with its iconic front LED bar and dramatic curves.

Vinfast’s VF 6, on the other hand, is a smaller electric crossover, which the company says is aimed at those looking for a “technologically advanced EV driving experience.”

The automaker’s smallest SUV features a “modern and spacious interior”, the focal point being the large touchscreen interface. See how both models compare to the preliminary specs below.
