The projects developed with long-lasting partner VinFast also stem from Pininfarina’s strong commitment into exterior, interior and UX design related to sustainable mobility. The two EV models VF 8 and VF 9 have been designed to offer impressive and stylish appearances while creating smarter and safer driving experiences.
In terms of exterior, Pininfarina utilized a modern design language to optimize aerodynamics and reduce energy consumption, while embracing the importance of aesthetics to promote the unique personalities of the vehicles. In combining the curves of sports cars, elongated lines typical of executive sedans, and the bold height and sharp profiles of SUVs, Pininfarina created unique identities and distinctive personalities for VF 8 and VF 9.
The interior of the two models is a combination of premium aesthetic standards and meticulous, sophisticated hand cut and sewn, complemented by the integration of advanced technologies to provide an enhanced ambience and calming environment. Seats are powered by intuitive controls that offer heating and ventilation to ensure absolute comfort. In further easing the pressure of busy commutes, the VF 9 Plus even offers massage functions. The VF 8 and VF 9 are also equipped with a large 15.6-inch touchscreen in the center console that minimizes the number of physical buttons while simplifying the interface. With the intuitive support of the high-resolution screen, drivers and passengers can easily navigate and enjoy a comprehensive driving experience on every journey. The full-color Heads-Up Display (HUD) technology projects onto the windshield to provide smart solutions that track the vehicle’s essential information while ensuring the drivers keep their eyes on the road.
