In this blog post, we will focus on the range, battery and charge time of the 2024 VinFast VF9 EV, as well as its performance and efficiency. We will also compare it with some of its rivals in the segment and see what makes it stand out.
The 2024 VinFast VF9 will be launched in 2024, following the debut of the VF9 concept in 2021. The new VF9 will be available in the U.S. market, as well as other global markets such as Europe, Asia, and Australia.

What is the range of the 2024 VinFast VF9 EV?
The range of the 2024 VinFast VF9 EV will depend on the battery pack and configuration that the customer chooses. According to VinFast, the base VF9 will have an estimated range of over 369 miles on a single charge. This is based on the WLTP cycle, which is more optimistic than the EPA cycle used in the U.S. Therefore, the actual range in other markets may vary depending on different testing methods.
Based on this estimate, we can calculate that the base VF9 will have an estimated combined fuel economy rating of over 100 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent), assuming a full charge of electricity (33.7 kWh). However, these numbers may change depending on various factors such as driving conditions, habits and options.
The range of the 2024 VinFast VF9 will also benefit from its aerodynamic design that reduces drag and improves efficiency. The vehicle will feature a sleek and low-slung body that optimizes airflow around and under the SUV. The vehicle will also feature LED headlights and taillights, a rear spoiler, and aerodynamic wheels¹.
What is the battery of the 2024 VinFast VF9 EV?

The base battery pack will have a capacity of about 123 kWh, which is larger than most other battery packs offered by VinFast. The battery pack will also have an advanced thermal management system that will ensure optimal performance and durability.
The battery pack of the 2024 VinFast VF9 will be supplied by LG Chem or CATL, both Asian companies that are among the largest battery manufacturers in the world.

What is the charge time of the 2024 VinFast VF9 EV?
The charge time of the 2024 VinFast VF9 EV will depend on the type and power of the charger that is used. According to VinFast, both battery packs will be able to charge from 10% to 80% in about an hour using a fast DC charger with up to 350 kW of power. These numbers are based on ideal conditions and may vary depending on various factors such as temperature, state of charge, and charger availability.
The VF9 will also be able to charge using AC chargers with different power levels. The vehicle will have an onboard charger with up to 22 kW of power for AC charging. Using a Level 2 home or public AC charger with up to 11 kW of power, both battery packs will be able to charge from empty to full in about nine hours. Using a Level 1 basic home AC charger with less than 2 kW of power, both battery packs will take much longer to charge.
