Vietnamese automaker VinFast finally delivered its first VF 8 electric crossovers to Canadian customers last year. Designed in Italy by Pininfarina, this midsize model features an 87.7kWh battery and generates either 349 horsepower or 402 horsepower depending on the model. Fit and finish fails to impress based on early reviews, while some of the electronic systems could use better programming. On the plus side, the company offers a generous 10-year/200,000 km limited vehicle warranty.
