If I had no specific preference among these vehicles, which do you think I'd get first based on my current status below?... Location: Chicago

Fisker O1: Rez date 4/30, pre-order 7/20... the purported timelines are well discussed here but seems September 23 is the latest but all USA customers perhaps sooner than that.

VinFast V9: Rez date July 12, no pre-orders yet... ordering process to likely start August-September... they will prioritize 5/30 or earlier reservations for delivery but that could slip similar to O1 pre-orders, latest guidance maintains first deliveries of V9 in december, but even if true, unlikley to include those near my spot in line?.

Polestar 3: Assume I drop a deposit as soon as possible on October 3 debut, seems production starts late Q4 22 or early Q1 23? first USA deliveries???

Other EV SUVs, Rivian etc.? (non-tesla, non-legacy brand only b/c interested in something new, unique vs.Tesla or an EV version of a Q5 or something)

Do you know if the VinFast VF9 qualifies for the federal tax credit? Logistically, it should, however, the tax credit is based on the size of the battery but since the battery is leased separately I wasn't sure if that affects the tax credit?

Great question... No clue!

My vote goes to Ocean ONE.
I don't like the interior of the V9 because there is no cluster and the battery has to be rented!

So, if you order the performance version of any Tesla, yor will have it in like two or three months. We don’t know the delivery schedule for the Ocean and where they will prioritize deliveries first. Not sure about the Q4.

I have heard mixed reviews about the E-Tron. On paper, the One seems to be the complete package but the issue is we don’t have any real world testimony to back that up. It might be worth waiting for cars like the Polestar 3 as the entire lineup has pretty good reviews.

I'm now thinking P3 or MB EQE SUV might happen sooner and be a different choice.

According to info I have found Vinfast vehicles do qualify for Tax credit.

I understand this as well but for some people who are less fortunate to be able to pay for 60K EVs its an ok alternative. However, someone on their team keeps mentioning that it is only leasing for the first 2 or 3 years then you will have the option to buy the battery if you would like and not get any upgraded batteries or so on if something were to happen it was they mentioned.

For someone in my shoes as I do not own a home or anyway to really charge at home that seems like an ok deal to me as I can just supercharge the crap out of it and pray the batteries degrade quickly so I get my moneys worth lol.

I have a deposit on the Ocean One and also the Cadillac Lyriq. I am thinking I'll see the Lyriq first...Maybe March-ish

I have Rivian R1S Oct-Dec delivery estimates, don't believe Rivian will deliver before Mar 2023. Hoping to get O1 before R1S. I will be cancelling my VF8/9 reservation, not a fan of subscriptions and also their charging speed isn't impressive (10-70% is 30 mins).

Nice insights everyone. Thanks for sharing. I really get the sense there is a ton of demand for the newer EV manufactures at a lot of price points, and the first brand to really figure out a customer centric way to do reservations, ordering, delivery guarantees etc. is going to pop. The current reservation hedging across multiple brands while waiting for info isn’t doing the manufactures or customers much good tho (obviously all facing supply chain etc head winds)
