2023 VF 8 Exterior

Most onlookers seem to find the exterior design of the VinFasty VF 8 to be quite agreeable. Styled by Pininfarina, there isn't anything groundbreaking about the VF 8's design, but it isn't boring, either. In front, there is a double-headlight design that flanks the company's V-shaped logo, while chrome and bodywork elements around the badge are also applied in a V shape. Parking sensors are visible in the front bumper, and these are standard - as they are at the back.

The side view is straightforward, and the wheels are attractive; these measure 19 inches on the Eco and 20 inches on the Plus. Character lines on the doors give the side some shape but are not too heavy-handed.

At the rear, the taillights stretch almost entirely across the body, and as with the front, the V shape of the logo is repeated in the elements immediately surrounding it. The VinFast script is proudly displayed on the tailgate, a smart choice to help the automaker establish brand recognition.

LED headlights and taillights are standard, as are front fog lamps, power-folding door mirrors, and rear privacy glass. Only the Plus comes with a hands-free, power-operated liftgate and a panoramic sunroof. We did notice that panel gaps were worryingly inconsistent from one part of the body to the next, and bits of trim didn't line up.

The dimensions of the VinFast VF 8 reflect a vehicle that is largely similar in size to the Tesla Model Y, despite the two cars having vastly different styling. The VF 8 has a length of 187 inches stretched over a 116.1-inch wheelbase, and its width works out to 76.1 inches. Both VF 8 models have a height of 65.6 inches.

At 5,600 pounds, the base VF 8 is very heavy - over 1,200 lbs portlier than the Model Y, in fact. In Plus specification, that figure rises to 5,732 lbs. It's likely that the models with the larger battery will weigh even more.
