Both models will be equipped with level 2 ADAS features for all Eco and Plus versions and modern technology features such as virtual assistant, mobile application, etc.

Although the pricing on the new VF6 and VF7 models has not been officially announced, it is widely expected to be lower than the larger, more powerful VF 8, which has a starting price of more than $40,000. Most car experts put the expected starting price at just north of $30,000 for each of the smaller VF6s and VF7s.
