During the Mobile World Congress 2022 (MWC 2022) in Barcelona, Vietnam-based VinFast and Pininfarina illustrated the interior and exterior design details of their electric vehicles, VF 8 and VF 9. These two models of electric vehicles are expected to be launched in the whole world. market by mid-2022.
In collaboration with Pininfarina, the world-renowned design studio, VinFast’s electric SUVs have been designed to deliver impressive and stylish appearances while creating smarter and safer driving experiences.
In terms of the exterior, Pininfarina has used modern design language to optimize aerodynamics and reduce energy consumption, while embracing the importance of aesthetics to promote the vehicles’ unique personalities. By combining the curves of sports cars, the elongated lines typical of executive sedans, the bold height and sharp profiles of SUVs, Pininfarina has created unique identities and distinctive personalities for the VF 8 and VF 9.
The VF 8 and VF 9 are equipped with a large 15.6-inch touchscreen in the center console which minimizes the number of physical buttons while simplifying the interface. With intuitive high-resolution display support, drivers and passengers can easily navigate and enjoy a full driving experience on every journey.
Full-color Head-Up Display (HUD) technology projects onto the windshield to provide smart solutions that track critical vehicle information while ensuring drivers keep their eyes on the road.
Strongly committed to a sustainable future, VinFast is soon researching the application of eco-friendly materials, such as eco-leather, for production in the interior cabin.
