Vinfast announced on Monday that at least one of the variants of its upcoming multi-row electric SUV, scheduled for U.S. delivery later this fall, will have an EPA range of 330 miles.

That’s more than the 300 miles that certain single-motor versions of the upcoming Kia EV9 are expected to travel. Additionally, it seems to be acquiring on the Rivian R1S, which achieves up to 352 miles with its middle of three battery options, known as Substantial Pack. However, Vinfast did not incorporate any reference to off-highway capabilities into the VF 9.

Additionally, the VF 9 received updated pricing for the American current market. The Eco model costs $83,000, and the As well as, which the manufacturer claims is capable of 291 miles of EPA range, starts at $91,000.

These prices are far higher than those that were announced in April 2022: $56,000 for the larger battery, as mentioned above, or $61,000 for the VF 9 As well as variety. This is due to the company’s then-current gamble on a unique design centred entirely around a battery membership.

According to previous specs that Vinfast has confirmed and those that have been placed on Vinfast’s customer website, the VF 9 seems to have accomplished that with the 123-kwh battery pack. In 35 minutes, the firm claims a 10-70% DC rapid-charging session.

The EPA has not yet issued Vinfast’s alleged variety ratings.

The VF 9 has a single electrical motor that produces 402 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque, and it has twin-motor all-wheel push. The VF 9’s cutting-edge driver-assistance features and clever companies are highlighted by Vinfast as being “continuously current.”

Vinfast has quickly made progress with its products. Last year, an early look at a Vinfast VF 8 prototype suggested that the company had made more advancements but was still working on what was still considered a final-phase prototype. In a review of the Vinfast VF 8 in prototype form published in May, Green Car Reports found that this electrical crossover was plagued with issues, with poor handling throughout the map and various annoyances with the driver-assistance features—despite the fact that the interface by itself was a strong point of the driving experience.

The VF 9 will first be exported to the U.S. market place, but the business wants to produce it in North Carolina starting in 2024, with a planned 150,000 vehicles produced year from the plant.
