Not sure if I'm understanding the pricing correctly. But it sounds like these vehicles are going to cost north of $50k-$60k in the upper trims. Then you're still going to pay a monthly charge on the battery? Plus the cost of actually charging the vehicle. I feel like a large reason for most people to switch to electric is the lack of added costs. Paying a lease charge and for charging the vehicle will negate any savings..

And I think there’s a bit of bait and switch here too. It looks like the prices they revealed are for the base pack which has like 260 miles of range in the VF9. The larger pack won’t be available at launch and will certainly be significantly more expensive if I had to guess. They also lowered the range estimate (a few days ago they showed 3 battery options now it’s down to 2). Not clear if they will just raise the monthly fee or the cost of the vehicle for larger batteries.

Here is a screenshot I made a few minutes ago which shows the price with and without buying the battery for the VF9 ECO STANDARD range… So they are going from $55,500 in the beginning to now $57,500 for the Eco with a subscription or they charge $18,500 for the battery for a total of $76,000 for the Eco… As we aim for the VF9+ with the extended range battery pack I project the price is (a) going up from $61,000 to maybe $64,000 (b) if we buy the extended battery pack plus cost for delivery we would have a total of roughly $85k... In my opinion (even with a tight EV market and supply chain issues) this pricing by VF is for a auto manufacturing newcomer ummm… lets say “confident“…

Here is a screenshot for actual pricing for the VF8
i'm sticking with the subscription. I don't WANT a $57k+ vehicle. Plus, if I own the battery I have to 'baby' it charging habit wise. Hard pass.

I think all these changes they are getting ready to have an order web system in place very soon......
