First negative review from those who went to Vietnam. Methinks that the author really doesn’t like to travel. Cranky pants on a totally free trip.
and if he went this summer why is this article so late?

Or, he wasn't swayed by dancing girls and fancy food.

I'll withhold decision until the serious auto press in the states has a chance to road test one of these.

Overall I think this article is bad journalism - the language used in this article reflects obviously personal resentments instead of professional report of facts.

But I also think that VF didn’t do a favor to itself with this event of inviting these people because the cars were clearly not ready to make a good impression. They should (and could) have waited until December with such an event for international press.

Reading between the lines this means that they don’t have placed a smaller battery into the car because of supply chain issues (this was my first guess) but they are missing their advertised ranges badly… I know from one of the Porsche EVs that Porsche indeed has managed to boost the range significantly by an software update - but i’m sceptical that VF can pull something similar (because they would need to push the range roughly a whopping 50%…)

We are really, really concerned how things are trending regarding VF and we’re looking more and more into other options for an 7seater SUV EV even if we really like the look of the VF9
