Founded in 2017, VinFast is one of the newer automotive brands, and it has just recently started operating in the US. The Vietnamese automaker specializes in the production of electric vehicles, and it currently has two SUV EVs in its repertoire. One of the unique qualities of the brand is its battery subscription plan, which reduces the initial purchase price and shunts the responsibility and cost of maintenance onto the dealership or factory.

What to Consider When Buying VinFast Electric Vehicles

As a new brand with only two models to choose from, VinFast will need to create a space for itself in the US market. To do just that, it has some unique strategies that will either attract or repel certain consumers. Here are some of the pros and cons that stem from this approach.


  • Very low asking price if you rent the battery
  • No extra maintenance costs when renting
  • Decent range in ER guise
  • Spacious and comfortable SUV designs


  • New brand with unknown reliability reputation
  • Only sells SUVs, so sedan and coupe fans are out of luck
  • Limited availability, mostly in California
  • Battery subscription plan may make some buyers hesitant


What are the best VinFast cars?

There are only two VinFast electric vehicles for sale right now, and which one is best will depend on whether you need space for five or seven passengers. The VF 8 will suit most buyers, but those with larger families may prefer the spacious VF 9.

Can I buy a VinFast EV in the USA?

With plans to open up to 30 dealerships in the USA, VinFast stock will become readily available in the United States. The factory is located in Hanoi, from which the cars will be shipped to California. The delivery date of the first cars is set to be sometime in 2025.

What is the price of VinFast cars in the USA?

The VF 8 has a starting price of $42,200, while the larger VF 9 starts at $57,500. Those prices exclude the monthly cost of $169 and $219, respectively, for the battery subscription. A permanent subscription fee will be offered for customers placing an order in 2022, or VinFirst Pioneers can enjoy a permanent subscription rate when purchasing a vehicle in 2022 or 2023.

What does the VinFast logo look like?

A relatively simplistic choice compared to many other logos out there, VinFast has chosen to represent its brand with a large, multilayered silver V.
