This is what the Vinfast VF 8 and VF 9 cost in the Netherlands

May 10, 2022


Maybe you’ve never heard of it: VinFast. The automaker from Vietnam is part of the Vingroup: one of the largest private companies from Vietnam. Vingroup is active in the Vietnamese construction and real estate sector and also has major interests in education, health care, agriculture, tourism and consumer spending sectors. The company even owns one of the tallest buildings in Asia, the 461.2 meter high Landmark 81 . The Vingroup also builds cars under the VinFast label. The VF 8 and VF 9 are the first two models to come to the Netherlands in the second half of this year.

VinFast VF 8

The VF 8 is the smallest of the duo, but with a length of 4.75 meters you cannot call it a small SUV. There are two versions: the Eco and Plus. You can choose from two battery packs: 82 or 87.7 kWh. The Eco variant can reach 420 kilometers on a single charge with the small battery pack, and 471 kilometers with the large pack. With the Plus variant, that is 400 or 447 kilometers.

Prices are without battery

The battery is not included in the prices mentioned above. It will only be possible to buy a car including a battery from 2024. Until then you have to take out a battery subscription. There are two subscription types: Fixed and Flexible. The Fixed Package has no kilometer limit and costs 120 euros per month for the VF 8 and 150 euros for the VF 9. If you drive less than 500 kilometers per month, you should go for the Flexible subscription. The prices of these will be announced by the Vietnamese soon.

All maintenance and repair costs are included in the subscription. The possible replacement of the battery pack, if the residual capacity should fall below 70%, is also a free part of the subscription. The brand expects that after 2024, 50% of buyers will choose a Vinfast EV with a battery subscription, the other half will buy the car including battery pack.
