Since announcing its pure electric strategy less than 12 months ago, VinFast has introduced design details and specifications for four electric vehicle models in the most popular crossover and SUV segments in America. This month, the VF 8 City Edition was also delivered to customers in the US following the September distribution to owners in Vietnam.
Last year, VinFast announced a partnership with Electrify America, the largest open DC ultra-fast charging network in the US. The collaboration will provide owners of VinFast electric cars with two complimentary charging sessions, along with access to Electrify America’s coast-to-coast network in the VinFast mobile app.
