VinFast will deliver its VF 8 City Edition electric vehicles to the first U.S. customers starting March 1.
These deliveries come from the first shipment of 999 City Edition vehicles, which were shipped to the U.S. in December 2022. The VF 8 City Edition comes in Eco and Plus trims with an EPA-rated range of 207 miles and 191 miles respectively.
VinFast will hold a delivery event March 1. For those customers unable to attend, they can have their vehicles delivered at home or they may schedule a pickup at a VinFast store starting March 2. VinFast has stores in Los Angeles, Marina del Rey and Irvine.
VinFast also announced multiple test drive events throughout California for customers to experience the new VinFast EVs.
“The presence of VinFast electric cars on U.S. streets in the coming days is an important milestone, accelerating VinFast's journey to compete in the US and abroad,” said Madam Le Thi Thu Thuy, Vice Chair of Vingroup and Chairwoman of VinFast, in a news release. “Following deliveries in the U.S. market, VinFast expects to deliver EVs in Canada, France, Germany, and the Netherlands."
The VF 8 City Edition offers many smart technology features such as advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and smart services to become a mobile platform. These features will be enhanced regularly using over-the-air (FOTA) updates to improve how the vehicles function.
Several leading insurance companies in the U.S. have confirmed they will provide vehicle insurance for VinFast owners. VinFast also offers a 10-year warranty for their vehicles and batteries, mobile repair services, and 24/7 roadside assistance.
Autonomy, an electric vehicle subscription service, ordered 2,500 fleet VF 8 and 9 vehicles at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2022.
