Range and Ratings
Both variants get an 82 kWh battery pack, and according to the U.S. EPA the Eco has an estimated range of 207 miles, and the Plus can go 191 miles between charges. The upcoming VF8 Standard gets a slightly more powerful battery and boasts an estimated range of 264 and 243 miles, respectively. Based on our experience, these higher numbers would likely apply to the VF8 City Edition we drove. At the start of our drive, the test vehicle displayed a 96 percent charge with a range of 255 miles. After a 50-mile drive, the display showed 189 miles remaining with a 70 percent charge. Based on these figures, it seems the EPA estimates are rather conservative.
