VinFast VF 8 Eco (2024) achieves a How far can it go on single charge? What is the real-world range? of 224–274 miles, placing it at №313 among 683 electric vehicles. However, this range is subject to several influences:

  • Speed: Traveling at higher speeds reduces battery life.
  • Temperature: Extreme cold or hot weather can affect range.
  • Terrain: Hilly or mountainous landscapes decrease range.
  • Driving habits: Aggressive driving with frequent acceleration and braking consumes more energy.
  • Feature usage: Climate control and media systems also influence range.

It's important to acknowledge that these are estimations, and your actual driving range may differ. Consider these factors when planning your trip and be ready for potential charging stops.
