Vinfast Car Price in India (VF8)
Right now the Vinfast electric car the VF8 has not been launched in India so the exact price of the Vinfast VF8 in India is unknown. But as it has already been launched in other countries where the Vinfast electric car VF8 price starts from $40,000 for the base model and will go up to $48,000 for the top model.
If we converted this price to Indian rupees it will be around Rs 33 lakhs to Rs 40 lakhs in India. But as we know there are some extra taxes which could increase the price of this car even more than this.
Vinfast Car Release Date
Right now there are not any official updates from the company regarding the release of Vinfast VF8 in India. So, it will be hard to guess when will be the Vinfast electric car launch in India.
But we can expect Vinfast may launch one of its electric cars in India by 2024 or in early 2025. Overall this release date is just a guess only so the official launch of the car in India will be later than this.

Vinfast VF8 Range & Battery
Now on battery, the Vinfast VF8 has come with 2 battery options smaller one with an 82 kWh battery pack and a bigger battery pack with 87.7 kWh. Now if we compared it to the most electric cars in India which are available right now 2023 then these battery packs are very big in size.
And from this big 82-87.7 kWh battery pack the Vinfast VF8 range will be easily around 447 km from a single charge. But in real life with different road conditions, it will be around 350-400 km per charge.
Also, this Vinfast VF8 SUV supports DC fast charging and from this DC fast charging this electric SUV can easily charge from 10% to 70% in just 31 minutes.
But the problem is right now few EV charging stations in India have up to 150 kW chargers so, most of the time you can’t charge this car very fast. Also, from a regular AC charger, it will take up to 15 hours for a full charge.
Vinfast VF8 Power & Performance
There are two models available in the Vinfast VF8 electric SUV Eco and Plus where Eco is less powerful but it has a longer range and the Plus model has the maximum power. But both of these models have dual motor setups with all-wheel drive systems.
Now The Vinfast VF8 can produce a maximum power of 402 horsepower with a 620Nm of torque with this power this electric SUV can accelerate from 0-100 km/h speed in just 5.5 seconds and its top speed would be 200 km/h which is so fast for an electric SUV.
if we compared this power to the other high-performance electric cars in India like the KIA EV6 and the BMW i4 then VF8 has more power than both of these EVs and also it is lesser in price.
Vinfast VF8 Interior
The Interior of Vinfast VF8 looks decent not much luxury premium. Inside we can see a big touchscreen floating display at the center with all control of the car. But we can’t see any display or any speedometer display in front of the driver seat, So we think this is just a concept of the car which needed to have more interior features in the actual model.
Overall the interior of the car is not much luxurious but looks good enough for a comfortable driving experience.
