The VinFast VF e35 is a medium-sized SUV of the D segment with a length of 4.75 meters and a wheelbase of 2.95 meters. This means he meets competitors like the BMW iX3.
It has five seats, a modern design and a luxurious interior. In Vietnam it is offered in two different versions with one or two electric motors. The power is between 201 and 402 hp. The 90 kWh battery promises a range of 504 km.
The larger VinFast VF e36 is a seven-seater SUV in the E-segment with a length of 5.21 meters and a wheelbase of 3.15 meters and thus even larger than the Audi Q7 and the Ford Explorer.
