The VinFast VF 8 electric SUV caters to families with its combination of functionality and family-friendly features. The in-car entertainment system offers personalization options, potentially making long journeys more engaging for young passengers. Notably, VinFast is aiming to broaden the appeal of electric vehicles in the U.S. market by offering one of the most attractive lease options available.

A recent OnePoll survey, commissioned by Meineke, reveals a fascinating trend: Americans see their cars as more than just transportation. Over half of the 2,000 respondents (51%) consider their car part of the family, and a significant portion (53%) would ideally hold onto their vehicles forever. This emotional connection goes beyond practicality, with some (22%) forming deep bonds and others (24%) cherishing fond memories associated with their cars.

This evolving car ownership philosophy is precisely what the VF 8 caters to. Designed to be more than just a mode of transport, the VF 8 seamlessly integrates into a family’s lifestyle. Targeting young families, it boasts spacious interiors for comfortable journeys, smooth handling for a stress-free ride, and a thoughtful design that prioritizes both style and functionality. Entertainment and safety features are seamlessly woven into the driving experience, offering families peace of mind on the road. The VF 8 isn’t just a car; it’s an extension of your family’s adventures.

To make electric vehicles more accessible to families and consumers, VinFast has unveiled an attractive lease program for its VF 8 SUV models. The program offers qualified lessees monthly payments of $249 for the base VF 8 Eco and $349 for the higher-trim VF 8 Plus, both for a 36-month lease term*. 

Spacious Comfort & Smart Tech: The VF 8 Makes Family Journeys Fun

American customers are showing strong interest in the VinFast VF 8, particularly among young families. The SUV’s spacious interior, which can comfortably seat three to four people, is a key selling point, according to Jason Cheung, a Staff Services Manager in the government sector. Cheung commented that the VF 8’s “executive type styling” also appeals to young professionals. He views the VF 8 as a good fit for young families, particularly those with 3-4 members. 

The sentiment is echoed by John Riedy, a photographer in Carlsbad, California, who sees the VF 8 as a good fit for young families. Ninh Pham, an engineer, adds to this perspective, highlighting the VF 8’s cabin space for families and its stylish design that appeals to young professionals.

This electric SUV, the VinFast VF 8, is designed with modern, dynamic families in mind. Its focus on space, comfort, and functionality makes it a compelling choice for those seeking a practical and stylish electric vehicle.

The VF 8 boasts a 116-inch wheelbase, translating to an airy and comfortable cabin. This spaciousness is ideal for both city commutes and long road trips. A key advantage over traditional cars is the dual front and rear trunks, offering ample storage for groceries, luggage, or even sporting gear.

For families venturing beyond the city, the VF 8’s advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) provides peace of mind. The ADAS features include maintaining a set distance from the car ahead, alerting the driver to potential collisions, and even automatically applying the brakes to mitigate risks.

Children will likely appreciate the spacious back seat, which offers ample legroom and comfortable, high-quality materials. The car’s virtual assistant provides entertainment options that, combined with the overall comfort, can help make even slow commutes feel manageable.

Home Entertainment on the Road: The VF 8 Levels Up Your Rides

VinFast’s electric SUV brings the comfort of home to the road with a suite of smart entertainment features. Passengers can stream movies, listen to music, play games, and even access the internet – but only when the vehicle is stopped. This ensures a fun and engaging experience for the whole family, particularly children, on long journeys.

For an even more immersive in-car entertainment experience, VinFast recently announced a partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) to offer RIDEVU, a new online service with over 2,000 movies, on the VF 8 in the U.S. Users who enroll during the special promotion can enjoy unlimited replays of up to 100 titles for the first 12 months, with the option to purchase or rent additional content directly through the app.

RIDEVU prioritizes safety. Drivers can only access movies on the central display while the vehicle is parked – ideal for charging breaks or camping trips. Passengers, however, can enjoy movies on their personal devices using the RIDEVU Companion app’s Screen Manager feature, even when the car is in motion. The parental control enables a safe and enjoyable entertainment experience for everyone on board.

 

Beyond Comfort: The VF 8 Prioritizes Child Safety

Safety remains paramount for families. The VF 8 boasts a suite of advanced driver-assistance systems including traffic jam assist, highway driving assist, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning. These features provide peace of mind on any road trip.

VinFast’s commitment to safety is further validated by the VF 8’s performance in Euro NCAP testing, one of the most rigorous evaluation programs in the industry. The European VF 8 model achieved a commendable 4-star rating, narrowly missing a perfect score by just 4%. Impressively, the VF 8 received the highest child protection rating in both frontal and side impact tests, with a score of 89%. This achievement underscores VinFast’s dedication to prioritizing child safety.

The VF 8’s safety accolades extend beyond Euro NCAP. It has also earned 5-star ratings from ASEAN NCAP (Southeast Asia). Furthermore, at the 2024 ASEAN NCAP Grand Prix Awards, the VF 8 secured top honors in five categories, including “Best Child Occupant Protection” and “Best Overall.” These awards solidify the VF 8’s position as a leader in safety innovation, making it an ideal choice for families seeking a comfortable and secure driving experience.
