On Our Podcast Show this week, we discuss our experience with the worst-reviewed electric vehicle of 2023! The Fully Charged Show made its stop in Vancouver, BC, Canada. As one of the country’s provinces with the highest EV adoption rate, it was a great way to help those hesitant jump in with both feet. The EV Test Drive area was one of the most popular parts of the show. But Stephen only had one vehicle on his hit list – The Vinfast VF8! After hearing so many horrible reviews and apologies for its poor experience, we wanted to find out how much was fact and fluff. And the results of our test drive might shock you!
