Ridiculous amount of money for what they're bringing to market. Every thing they said at launch about offering a long range luxury vehicle for an affordable price was a lie. Sad thing is with dealerships still charging markups and the absurd interest rates on loans.. they might actually lure people in with this.

biggest 'lure' for me is the battery subscription option. That isn't there, I'm out. Because w/out that, the price is right there with what is already available EV wise frrom others.
Yeah and it seems to be missing from the updated site and the new pricing reflects that as well.. They even added a 10 year unlimited mile battery warranty. But there's still a link to the battery subscription at the very bottom.

battery subscription option is also still in the FAQs; but yes it has been scrubbed from most of the website. Somebody visiting the website for the first time wouldn't even know about it unless they dug.

This seems to be going downhill.
it certainly is a PR mess of some level for sure. Vinfast, I guess, thought nobody would notice and just be over joyed 999 vehicles made it to Calif by 12/31. I think they didn't think long and hard before making the decisions that lead us to today.
I'm sticking with my reservation because overall no competitor can match it (yet). Longer I wait, more months no auto loan payment. (y)

Yeah, pretty much why I still have my reservation, though there is no way I will be following up on it if they aren't able to give me the flexible plan back. Without it, it just doesn't make financial sense for me. I have been eyeing the Chevy Equinox instead.

I think they already knew the EPA estimates were way lower than what they first said so they sent them thinking for the daily commuter people would be great. However, at the range and price it is at you can get a Chevy Bolt or Nissan Leaf cheaper and with more range than what the VF8 City Edition had. So yeah I think if they dropped the price down to $35k or $40k maybe gets some actually sold but they were keeping it at the higher VF8 prices as it is the same vehicle just doesn't meet the range they were quoting. So I think they should take the hit on these vehicles instead of trying to offer these crappy Lease deals, and only taking 3k off.

I am not a Vin First reservation holder so I didn't get the email. So if one were to get this vehicle you will have only taking off 6k from the asking price. and if your qualify for full $7500 tax credit will get that as long as you coverted reservation to order before bill signing.
