VinFast’s Pint-Sized VF 3 Has 43 HP And 130 Miles Of Range

  • VinFast has begun accepting deposits for the VF 3 in Vietnam.
  • As part of the launch preparations, the company revealed the model has 43 hp and 130 miles of range.

VinFast has revealed new details about the adorable VF 3, ahead of its launch in Vietnam. Pricing starts at 240 million VND ($9,428) without the battery and 322 million VND ($12,650) with it.

var adpushup = window.adpushup = window.adpushup || {que:[]};
adpushup.que.push(function() {
if (adpushup.config.platform !== “DESKTOP”){
adpushup.triggerAd(“4d84e4c9-9937-4f84-82c0-c94544ee6f2a”);
}
else{

adpushup.triggerAd(“6a782b01-facb-45f3-a88f-ddf1b1f97657”);
} });

Customers who choose to get a battery subscription will find three different plans. The entry-level one costs 900,000 VND ($35) and is aimed at people who drive less than 1,500 km (932 miles) per month. At the opposite end of the spectrum is a 2,000,000 VND ($79) plan for people who drive over 2,500 km (1,553 miles) per month.

Pricing aside, the VF 3 has an expansive color palette that includes four standard hues as well as five different options. If those aren’t to your liking, you can spend an additional 15 million VND ($589) to get a custom color.

});

target_type: ‘mix’
});

VinFast didn’t release too many other details, but the model has 7.5 inches (191 mm) of ground clearance and will be offered with aerodynamically optimized 16-inch wheels. Other highlights include plastic body cladding and blacked out pillars.

In terms of size, the VF 3 measures 125.6 inches (3,190 mm) long, 66.1 inches (1,679 mm) wide, and 63.8 inches (1,622 mm) tall with a wheelbase that spans 81.6 inches (2,075 mm). To put those numbers into perspective, the model is 17.4 inches (441 mm) shorter than the Fiat 500e.

VinFast was coy about the cabin, but it features a single 10-inch display that appears to function as a digital instrument cluster and infotainment system. It’s joined by a two-spoke steering wheel, minimalistic controls, and a few splashes of color. Buyers will also find a rear seat that folds down to provide 10 cubic feet (285 liters) of cargo space.

Power comes from a rear-mounted electric motor that produces 43 hp (32 kW / 44 PS) and 81 lb-ft (110 Nm) of torque. Those modest numbers enable the crossover to accelerate from 0-31 mph (0-50 km/h) in a “brisk” 5.3 seconds.

That’s not exactly fast and the crossover has a small 18.64 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. It enables the model to travel up to 130 miles (210 km) on a single charge in the NEDC cycle. When the battery is low, it can go from a 10% to 70% charge in as little as 36 minutes.

In other news, VinFast announced the VF 8 is getting Sony’s RIDEVU streaming video service. It provides access to over 2,000 movies, but it will only show them on the infotainment system when parked.  

Unfortunately, since VinFast doesn’t have a Mercedes-like SplitView technology, passengers have to use a smartphone or tablet to watch movies while the vehicle is in motion. As a result, they’ll probably just stick to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video.

That being said, RIDEVU is complimentary for 12 months and is included as part of the VF Connect Prime package.
