We talk a lot about VF8 and VF9… but VinFast could surprise us more with VinFast VF7.
The VinFast VF8 and VF9 are coming; these are the first electric models of the very recent Vietnamese brand. We had the opportunity to visit its enormous Gigafactory; from there, the first models that will be sold in Europe came out. During the Mondial de l’Auto, we were able to see the VF6 and VF7. Two more compact 100% electric vehicles, and much more suited to the European market.
C-SUV, THE HIGHLY SOUGHT-AFTER SEGMENT IN EUROPE
The VinFast VF7 is the version that inspired us the most, as it corresponds a lot greater to what’s predicted of an electric-powered car. This is known as a C-SUV phase car; street SUVs straddle segments. It is mainly made from compact SUVs with a prolonged wheelbase to provide greater trunk capacity. Here, we have the equal version of the Peugeot 2008 and the brand new Renault Mégane E-Tech.
This is a layout extruded from the VF8 and VF9. Logically, it isn’t always the equal clothier at the back of the VinFast VF7. It’s the Torino Design studio, with a mild signature withinside the form of a V. On the layout side, we note the marked wheel arches and the plastic underbody, with a dynamic profile and a receding window cutout, without forgetting to large 20-inch wheels.
The rear is likewise a success, with a mild signature corresponding to that of the front, in addition to a small and angled bezel. We recognize the layout of the VinFast VF7 a whole lot extra than that of the VF8 and VF9. With 4.30 meters long, it’s miles accordingly a car so as to simply be a whole lot extra sensible on a day-by-day basis. In phrases of electricity, this city SUV ought to be ready with a one hundred ten kW engine (equal to a hundred and fifty hp) for a number of over three hundred km. It remains too early to have particular values regarding its charge, its electricity, and its autonomy.

Inside, it’s very akin to the VF8 we saw. No display screen in front of the driver, like at Tesla; however, a head-up show gadget. Finally, we’re left with few bodily controls, and a tools selector below the vents, once more just like the VF8.
And… the large touchscreen. The gadget is similar to the VF8, nevertheless primarily based totally on Android. We emerge with an interface very just to that of Tesla, with identical widgets and display screen cutting. VinFast does not appear to have constructed any slimmed-down infotainment in comparison to the ones extra costly models.

VinFast VF7: HOPE FOR A COMPETITIVE RATE
Hopefully, the rate is greater aggressive than the VF8 and VF9. VinFast has a version right here which can actually arise to French cars. With this layout and those dimensions, VinFast certainly has a fine layout for Europe. With a 10-yr or 200,000 km warranty, we anticipate a base rate of 35,000 euros.
