New electric-vehicle maker VinFast has revealed its battery subscription pricing for the VF 8 and VF 9 utility vehicles. And, the automaker says it will eventually offer the batteries for sale with the purchase of a new vehicle.
Under the leasing program, the Vietnam-based automaker will rent the battery packs to customers, rather than include its cost in the original price of the vehicles.
However, VinFast said Tuesday that the battery subscription policy applies to “100 per cent of the EVs sold until the end of 2023.”
“From 2024 onwards, approximately 50 per cent of VinFast electric vehicles sold will be applied with the battery subscription policy, the remaining 50 per cent will be sold with batteries as market practice,” the company said in a statement.
