MARKHAM, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Car buyers are increasingly prioritizing safety features when purchasing a vehicle. According to Rocket Auto, more than 70% of drivers will pay more for cars with top safety features. As roads become more congested and accidents more prevalent, people seek cars equipped with advanced technologies that can protect them and their loved ones. From anti-lock braking systems to collision mitigation, drivers are willing to invest in automobiles that prioritize their safety.
VinFast, the emerging Vietnamese automaker, understands this demand and has taken significant steps to ensure its vehicles are built to protect. Specifically, the VinFast VF 8 has received 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating and complied with all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) issued by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). With a commitment to providing state-of-the-art safety features, VinFast aims to offer peace of mind to drivers on every journey.
Madam Le Thi Thu Thuy, Global CEO of VinFast, affirms: "Safety has become paramount for car buyers and we recognize the increasing demand for vehicles equipped with advanced safety features that can safeguard drivers and their families. At VinFast, we are dedicated to meeting this demand by prioritizing the integration of state-of-the-art safety technologies into our vehicles."
VinFast VF 8's Focus on Safety Features
VinFast has incorporated advanced technologies and robust engineering throughout its lineup. One of the key safety features found in VinFast VF 8 is the Active Safety System. This system combines various advanced technologies such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB). These features work in harmony to detect potential dangers and assist the driver in preventing collisions.
VinFast also implements cutting-edge solutions to protect passengers during accidents. The VF 8 features a reinforced battery pack that is structurally integrated into the chassis. This design not only enhances the vehicle's rigidity but also ensures a high level of safety in the event of a collision. The VF 8 is also equipped with an advanced digital security system that can alert emergency services in case of an accident through the Auto E-call and an Emergency SOS button - providing quick access to first responders. The VF 8 features 11 airbags for comprehensive protection, which surpasses the industry standard. These additional airbags help reduce the amount of force that is exerted on the seating positions in the event of a collision.
To take safety to the next level, VinFast VF 8 also offers an on-board Driver Monitoring system, which uses on-board cameras and artificial intelligence (AI) to scan and analyze patterns while you drive that compromise safety, such as using your cell phone, becoming drowsy or removing your hands from the wheel. The system can then alert drivers, helping them stay safe and focused behind the wheel.
Emphasizing the company's unwavering commitment to safety, Madam Le Thi Thu Thuy states: “We believe that every car owner deserves the highest level of protection while on the road. This belief drives us to continuously innovate and develop advanced safety features to ensure our vehicles offer uncompromised safety to our customers."
