    Thanks for posting. Another example of the media signaling to Vinfast that they made a bad decision in the eyes of the American consumer, and continued radio silence from Vinfast.

    I think Vinfast better start communicating or holding some sort of Press Conference to handle the PR nightmare that will be coming their way with that outrageous EPA range, Lease details, and cost of the vehicle. This is really pushing me towards just getting the Tesla Model 3 right now. At least with it at 49K can get 264 miles or 272 miles of range lol and have the charging network and 10k charging miles free that will expire in 2 years. Also get the $3750 rebate this month and forever starting next month lol.

      Vinfast called me other day. I pressed they have dropped the ball in communicating with vinfirst pioneers and reservation holders. I was told leadership will be informed. Hum.

      I too have looked at other EVs available. Can’t touch Tesla; too expensive. On interest list for Chevy Blazer.

        Tesla is expensive but you do have a charging network that is already established. Continuous software updates. Also I have reservation for Blazer as well but I might lean more towards the Equinox cause of pricing.

        With the pricing of the Vinfast now it costs just as much as a Tesla so what is the point now might as well look at getting Tesla. Now I did reserve before 9/1/22 so I do have teh cheaper pricing and Battery Subscription early pricing but since I do not own a home I need charging speeds, charging curve, and access to a charging network that does not break down often lol.

    There are reservations for the Blazer? Dang, I’m just on the interest list….

    I’m sticking w Vinfast as long as possible. Hard to beat the deal Vinfast pioneers get. And that is a.s.summing the battery subscription stays an option.

    Plus longer I go longer I go wo car payments. 👍🏻
