I just realized their prices ($41k for VF8 & $56k for VF9) does not include batteries.

*The starting price is applicable for the ECO version of the vehicle and do not include battery subscription, Sales tax, ADAS and Smart Services packages.

The pricing doesn't look as promising if you have to add a battery subscription and have concerns how it will affect the ability to sell the car (feels like trying to sell a house that has leased solar panels on the roof). Renault did a similar tactic in Europe with the Zoe but you did have the option to buy the battery as well. It made sense 9 years ago when the Zoe went on sale as people were very concerned about longevity of batteries but doesn't make sense anymore.

If VinFast does only offer battery subscriptions; I would only entertain a lease on the vehicle and would not purchase one.

Doesn't come with a battery? Did any manufacturer sell ICE cars without a motor? No, that is the dumbest thing I've heard. They will never succeed with that model

Battery swapping is actually very big overseas. If it will catch on in the US is another question.
