Nevertheless I’m mad that there is only one plan at the moment
certainly a plan with higher limited mileage would have been a better choice. MY take away is the first one was far too limited. Even for a 24 mile round daily trip it wasn't enough. Also a bit irked that they don't tell us. One of the 'benefits' of being a vinfirst/vinpioneer was supposedly we were supposed to get news 'first hand'. So far, haven't seen any of that yet. One has to visit the web site daily and really pay attention for any changes.

You are aware the mileage estimates aren't the US based ones; so count on the range being lower in reality.

Yeah, rivians are nice if you like spending that much $$$$. Not me, that's what drove my decision for a vinfast; much cheaper.

yes Im totally aware that they’re working with WLTP standard and Im also aware that for the majority of cars this range number is larger for the US than if tested with EPA standard.

What Im talking about is: I‘m curious if they will lower their official WLTP numbers … Let’s say that the VF8 eco suddenly is WLTP 270 mi instead of right now 292 mi or the VF9 is suddenly WLTP 340 mi instead of 369 mi.

I've already prepared myself the range will be 15% lower than stated. All good if we stay over 200, I'm not worried. We take a rare longer drive will take the ugly Prius. 🤮

I've also already decided on the VF8 plus and bigger battery.

Thats valid.

But I’m still not impressed with how they act right now.
I agree, luckily for me I am not in California so I am not going to get a VF9 right away, I love following the company to see how they play in the California market first. Then in 1-3 years when we are may be eligible to purchase here I can see how they are doing. But I agree, they are a little too quite and unorganized for how far along they are.
